Learning from home during lockdown

While you and your child/children are working from home, we thought you might find the guidance below useful. Establishing a structure during the day can really help children and parents.  Below is a suggested timetable that you can use as a basis for your daily structure and adapt according to your family and situation.

Links to Online Learning Resources

Following feedback from parents we have split up the learning resources into days of the week to make it easier for you to access the learning.  We hope that using this table to click on the link will really help.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday resources will be updated on a Friday afternoon between 1 and 3 pm and Thursday and Friday resources will be updated on a Tuesday between 1 and 3 pm.

We are really keen to see the work that you have been doing so please send photographs of your learning and the fun things that you have been doing at home to the relevant email addresses below so that we can include the best of these in the following weeks online resource.  Please only share photographs with your children in them if you are happy for them to be shared on these forums which are open for anyone to see.

Learning Resource Instructions

The links to accessing pupils’ learning for Term 5 are by year groups specified below.  If your child has special educational needs, or would prefer to, you can start in the year below their existing group.  These resources can be accessed on mobile phone, tablet, laptop or computer. Here are a few additional hints to help you get going.

  1. Anywhere you see a bold line under a word, this is a link to another document or web page, please click on these.
  2. If you see a stack of cards/slides, please click on the pile to see the cards below.
  3. Some of the links are to You Tube or PowerPoint presentations, please follow the instructions on these once they open.
  4. In Year 6, there are a couple of forms to complete, please click on these once they are loaded and fill them in, these may appear on other year groups in coming weeks.
  5. In Years 1 and 2, parents will need create an Oxford Owl and Twinkl account in order to access some of the resources, you will be able to see this via the links. There is no cost for these, please do not sign up to any memberships that require payment.

If you have already told us that your household does not have internet access, we will be sending out some alternative work for your children.  Depending on the postal service, you should receive this by Friday 1st May (supplier issue) at the latest.
