Here is a guide to how best to support your children while they are learning from home. The purpose of this is to provide a guide for what home learning might look like and to inform you of what the school plans to do to support you. Obviously, this is an uncertain time and we will seek to adapt these plans as necessary and communicate the changes to you.

It is important for children to keep their skills developing, particularly in reading writing and maths.

Here is today’s English challenge from Mrs Chalk.

Reading: Children should read for thirty minutes every day. This might involve reading on their own, reading with an adult, listening to stories or discussing what they have read. Children should read a range of fiction and non-fiction. Oxford Owl is a useful resource with e- books for the colour band level children are reading at. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar: Children can access their Spelling Shed accounts to practise their spellings. They will be able to access Espresso online and use a username and password to access all areas. The children have been shown some of the most useful sections in school over the course of the day. https://www.discoveryeducation.co.uk/what-we-offer/discovery-education-espresso (Username: student10836 Password: school).

Phonics: Children can access the free PhonicsPlay account. The purpose of the phonics programme is to build children’s speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. Guidance will be added weekly by teachers with a focus. https://new.phonicsplay.co.uk/ (Username: march20  Password:home). http://www.phonicsplaycomics.co.uk/comics.html On this website, children access comic strips to read related to the sounds they are working on.

Maths:

White Rose Maths Hub are an excellent resource that we also use in school all the time. Next week, they are going to release short videos followed by activities that will be excellent to use every day during the maths slot. Please look at the content on the previous year group if your child is struggling with the content.

In Year 2, children can also access their TTRS accounts and in the coming weeks we will set up Battle of the Bands which are always hugely motivational!

In addition to this, year groups will set weekly tasks that will go onto the classes’ section of the website each Friday. These will attempt to deliver the rest of the curriculum content in a way that is more home-learning friendly.

Below is a suggested timetable of what your week might look like.
