Weekly Information

General information

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.

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.

Writing: 

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar: Children have their Read Write Inc. spelling work books and 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.

Maths: 

If you want to have a go at something different or want a bit extra to do today have a go at this as well.

and then do the activities in your book.

The White Rose Maths Hub are an excellent resource that we also use in school all the time. They have released short videos followed by activities that will be excellent to use every day during the maths slot. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

They should 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. There is also a wealth of information in the home school diaries.

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

  •  Maths practice book for ages 9-10 (Year 5) ages 10-11 (Year 6).
  •  English practice book for ages 9-10 (Year 5) ages 10-11 (Year 6)

We are really keen to keep the communication between home and school as open as it can be. If your child does anything that they are really proud of please email it to their year group email e.g. year5@kingsleighprimary.co.uk and we will share work on the blog in the usual way.

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to do the best that we can to support our children and community through this unprecedented time.
