Working from Home Information
In the event of the closure of our class bubble due to a confirmed case of COVID-19, if your child is self-isolating, or if school closures are enforced, the work to be completed during this time will be listed below. Please see the attached timetable to give a guide on the lessons/ activities to be completed and when. It is the expectation that in the event that a child/ bubble of children is self-isolating that they engage with and complete the work set to the same standard that they would in school. This is vital in enabling their education to continue.
In the event of a bubble closure, your child will be given a pack to take home. This will include exercise books to complete maths and writing based tasks as well as some paper based activities. These packs will then be returned to school and checked by a member of staff when your child/ bubble returns to school. It is important that the work is completed neatly and to the high standard that we would expect from the children in school. Please see the presentation guidance below. The children's home learning exercise books will be kept and used again if necessary.
Activities and tasks will be shared on the Purple Mash learning platform via 2e-mail each school day. Your child will need to respond to the daily email between 8:45a.m. and 10 a.m. the same day. This will effectively serve as a ‘register’ allowing us to both communicate the expectations for learning and to maintain a daily contact, opening lines for support/encouragement/engagement.
An additional copy of the login details for Purple Mash has been included within home learning packs.
If an email is not replied to by the agreed time, a member of staff will attempt to make contact in an alternative way. It is important that you keep us informed of any circumstances which may prevent your child from engaging with and completing the set schoolwork.
*If your child does not have access to a device to complete learning at home then please contact school as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made to support their learning promptly.
Thank-you for your on-going support during these uncertain times.
When you are on the Home page, go to Computing, then go to 2e-mail.
You should then be able to see a smaller version of the same icon in a row of four. Click on that and it will take you to the emails and your inbox.
We will be following the maths lesssons from Oak National Academy. Please see the link below under 'Maths'. For each lesson, there is a video tutorial that will explain the focus skill just as I do in class on the board. Any related tasks and activities do not have to be printed out, instead they can be copied neatly and completed in their home learning exercise books.
Oxford Reading E-Books
The link below will take you to the Oxford Owl website - this is the reading scheme we use in school. Click on the stage your child is at and you can access books for free online. Please aim to read with your child for 15 minutes each day.
