Until further notice, schools in England will be expected to play a new role in support of vulnerable learners and key workers. This will involve the school being open for some of our pupils but many will be working at home.
We have created home learning packs which many parents have collected. if you haven’t done so, please collect for your child from the school office. The school office will be open each day. In the home learning packs you will find guidance on using Mathletics and guidance on accessing Google Classroom (KS2 pupils only). You will also find a suggested timetable to structure home learning experiences. We will alert you to new tasks uploaded to the website via text message at weekly intervals.
Teachers will be working across this period of school closure to provide a range relevant online learning tasks to supplement the home learning packs. Please support teachers by ensuring your children complete them. It is very important to us that children’s entitlement to learning continues during the period of school closure and we hope this will support you in structuring activities throughout the days to come. Children have access to a number of home learning resources including Mathletics, Purple Mash and Espresso in KS1 with the addition of Times Table Rockstars and Google Classroom in KS2. Your child should have their log in details in their home reading diaries but if these have been misplaced, you can call the school office who will be able to share log in information or passwords with you.
For EYFS and KS1 parents, teachers will be making calls to discuss learning tasks with you at key intervals and offer any help or support you might need. In Key Stage 2, pupils will be asked to submit a small number of tasks each week through Google Classroom and teachers will be able to feedback to pupils on their outcomes. Throughout term time and within school hours there will be accessibility to the parent room to change reading books should you wish to do so.
