Learning at Home During National Lockdown (Spring Term 2021)

Our home learning this term will link as closely as possible to the learning we would be doing in school. The timetable below reflects the daily routine for years 1 to 6 that is currently in place in school and outlines the learning that will be provided. Some children will move through the tasks more quickly and others will take longer; please use this timetable as a guide only. The remote learning leader is Mrs Cornish.

Daily tasks will be set on each child’s Microsoft Teams account under assignments with links as needed to support the learning activities. Children in EYFS will continue to be directed and guided to learning opportunities through Tapestry. If you need to confirm your child’s log in details for Teams, Doodle, Reading Eggs, TTRS or Tapestry, please contact the school office so that these can be emailed to you.

In the Early Years, learning is largely play based. To support ongoing learning, tasks will be set via Tapestry, but we encourage you to ensure that your child spends time being imaginative, creative, active and inquisitive. We recommend that you complete more formal tasks only over shorter periods.

If you need any learning printed, please contact the school and we will arrange for print outs for you to collect. Teachers and TAs will be online on Microsoft Teams/Tapestry during school hours and will respond as quickly as possible to messages posted.

We recognise that family situations will differ and families will need to adjust to what works best for them to maintain balanced mental health for both parents and children. We ask that you prioritise the daily English and Maths if you are unable to complete all aspects of learning. There are many opportunities to learn in different ways while at home which you may want to utilise – please share this learning with us as well!
