Home Learning

Welcome to Summer Term Home Learning.

This term, to provide further structure for our learners at home, teachers have been busy planning weekly lessons for many subjects. They will be uploaded each Monday for you to download from the class page links below.  SUMMER TERM 2 WEEK 7 Resources are Live! 

Home Learning Menu

To further help structure the week for our learners at home, we have created a Home Learning Menu.

Each lesson will feature a PowerPoint lesson to follow, the relevant resources and many even feature the teachers’ voices talking through the lesson!

There is a link to a questionnaire to fill in at the end of each lesson so we can see how learners are engaging with their work.

There continue to be workpacks, Topic Challenges and our online learning platforms such as Manga High, Bug Club and Lexia for extra work if required but also please remember to enjoy all of the  lifeskills activities that can be found in our newsletter.

Top Tips for Parents/Carers

•Help your child prepare a daily and weekly timetable. It may help to follow the usual school timetable but perhaps working to the child’s preferred hours.

•Give your child encouragement. These are challenging times. Such a sudden change will be unsettling for many children.

•If your child gets stuck on a topic, see if you can offer practical solutions, such as finding a website with further information.

•Encourage your child to email their teachers if they need help that you can’t provide.

•Review your child’s progress daily. Make sure they are sticking to their timetable, are not cutting corners and are producing work to the standard of which they are capable.

•Your child may complete their work more quickly while schooling at home. So reward them with time off to do an activity they enjoy such as kicking a football in the garden or watching a favourite TV programme.
