Beech Avenue - Learning from Home

All children not at Frontline School (see below) are expected to undertake learning at home.  This will consist of daily Class Meetings and lessons.  Please see the information below on Class Meetings, Learning for Nursery - Year 4 and the different arrangements for Years 5 and 6.

Live Class Meetings

Every morning, a live class meeting will be held online for your pupil to attend. During the meeting, the teacher will go through the learning for the day, so your child/children know what to expect. The meetings also provide an opportunity for your child to ask any questions. As we move through the term, feedback will also be provided to the children on their learning. In Nursery to Year 2, meetings will be held in the morning and in Years 3 and 4, there will be a morning and an afternoon meeting. The timings can be found below.

Home Learning for Nursery to Year 4

For children in Nursery to Year 4, all learning will on be on a Daily Sway, which can be accessed via the links below. The sways contain daily reading, writing and maths learning and one other subject. Each subject has been planned carefully and is the same curriculum which is being taught in school. We want to ensure that children learning at home are not missing out on content that they would be learning if they were in school with their peers.

Home Learning for Years 5 and 6

Home Learning for Years 5 and 6 will be live teaching by our Year 5 and Year 6 team. Every child will receive a reading, writing and maths lesson every day plus one other subject which will be self-study. Live teaching will be accessed through Microsoft Teams and each child will have a Chromebook to enable them to do this. All Year 5 and 6 children have been issued, or will be issued, with a log on for their Chromebook as well as for Office 365.

Below is the timetable for your child's learning while at home. This will also be shared with your child in their class Team.  All 'live' sessions are indicated with (L).

For instructions of how to access both the Chromebook and Microsoft Teams, please read the instructions available in the button below.
