Welcome to our school - full of happy, hard-working children and teachers. We want every child to participate fully, respect other people, be independent and determined in achieving excellence.
We are currently setting tasks each day on Seesaw which children may complete. So that children are not inundated with activities to complete when they log in, we are going to remove tasks at the end of the week. There is no expectation that children will 'go back' and complete any tasks they missed. Some days children will be motivated to complete all tasks; other days they may not complete any- this is fine. We hope that Seesaw will give you the flexibility to choose as a family what suits your unique situation.
Some parents have asked for the weekly tasks to be made available on the website so they can plan in advance what and when to complete activities. You can find the links to these below.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Thank you for all of your support in helping your child with learning at home during this difficult period.
I would like to stress that all work provided in the form of packs and online in the future is there to provide suitable work/tasks for your child. There is no expectation that all work will be completed, and I fully understand that families are facing complex difficulties. We are only hoping to ensure that resources are there for you and that you can receive daily interaction with your child’s teacher as and when required.
Full work packs will be issued if we are committed to closing the school. If they are issued as each child isolates it will be unmanageable in terms of directing learning.
However, I will put works sheets online this week, but their success rather depends on a family having a printer. Therefore, below are lots of links for children to explore and this will be regularly updated.
For most of the work/links below, access to a laptop or tablet is required. Should you have any difficulty in accessing the internet or equipment please contact the school office.
I have just purchased MyMaths for the school and will be issuing instructions and passwords for this once I receive them.
Children can still access Times Tables Rockstars, and copies of usernames and passwords will be sent home with children and texted to those not in school.
Reading and the Arts
Regular reading, art and creative tasks are also a good use of learning time.
Below is the link for the school’s online coding portal. KS2 children and some KS1 children should be familiar with the scheme. It would be great if an adult could explore some familiar units.
Another great IT resource is an hour of code. The children follow a tutorial from start to finish, but please note the grades are American, so spend time selecting the appropriate age range.
