Information Booklet re Home Learning

September 2020 Home Learning

 

Teachers will ensure that any child learning from home due to isolation, will receive sufficient work to complete each day. If your child has to isolate at short notice, the school will email an initial pack of activities based on core learning priorities for their year group.  At the end of day one , your child's teacher will then send an individual email containing home learning for tomorrow and will then be in touch each day they are away from school.  This work will be closely matched to the work being completed by the children who are in school.  Of course, if your child is unwell or develops symptoms, we do not expect them to complete this work.

Dear Parents and Carers,

                                         

Below this message, I have added some additional information about our home learning approach.

 

Work will be posted on your child's class page at the beginning of each school week. Tasks set will focus on English, maths and a wider curriculum grid of activities. Children will also have access to: numbots, TimesTableRockstars and reading books via Bug Club (the passwords have been included in your child’s exercise book). We would love to see some examples of the work that you complete. If you would like to share your child's learning please email it to their class email address. 

 

There is a dedicated email address for your child’s class - this can be found on each class page. That email account will be monitored by your child’s class teacher. Any queries regarding the work set should be directed to that account. Teachers will respond via the designated email account, when they are able. The accounts will not be monitored in the evenings, overnight or at the weekend.

 

Thank you again for your support during this time.

 

Best wishes,

 

Simon Westwood

 

PRIMARY TIMES DEVON & PLYMOUTH

Primary Times Devon have distributed their magazine to families for a number of years now, the aim being to provide details of all the fun, exciting and educational events going on locally during the summer holidays.
This year, things being as they are, they are unable to do so. Instead for the summer they would like to offer parents links to virtual things to do and learning for children.
The contributors will all be from the local community and economy. The idea being to offer a regular update and refreshed information throughout the summer as and when we receive it.
If you are interested p
lease follow or cut and paste the link below for their first E-Newsletter:

You can then choose to open the information should you wish and can also take an option to receive future emails direct from them.

 

 

Parent Top Tips for Staying Safe Online

Home Learning Letter 20.03.2020

From this Monday 23rd March, work for each day will be posted via the website on a weekly basis (N.B. This will not happen during the Easter break). Your child will have brought home an exercise book for them to complete work in. (If you have not received your book as you child has been self-isolating please contact your child’s class teacher to receive the passwords. Once you have left self-isolation then the books will be available from the school foyer during the opening hours of 9-11am. Please communciate with the office beforehand)

 

Children will be set tasks focused on English, maths and an area of the wider curriculum. Children will also have access to: TimesTableRockstars and reading books via Bug Club (the passwords have been included in your child’s exercise book).

 

The school, whilst being closed to children, will open the foyer for 1 hour each day 9:30 – 10:30 (times subject to change). If required, hard copies of the work set can be collected during that period – if you let us know in advance that you are coming we will have it ready for you. If not, there may be a short wait whilst the work you require is printed.

 

There is a dedicated email address for your child’s class. (This will be found on your child’s ‘class page’ from Monday.) That email account will be monitored by your child’s class teacher. Any queries regarding the work set should be directed to that account and not the administration email. Teachers will respond via the designated email account, when they are able. The accounts will not be monitored in the evenings, overnight or at the weekend.

 

Sharing your work

Your parents/carers have been given an email address for your class. Please encourage them to use this in one of the following ways:

-email completed work

-email a photo of some of your work

-email a comment about your learning

-send a message to celebrate something you have done very well or tried hard with

-ask a question about the learning

 

Within the home learning page there are some additional information, activities and resources focused on areas including: mental well-being, communication, visual timetabling, physical education, and writing challenges.

 

Thank you again for your support during this time.
