Remote Learning

Scroll down the page to see some examples of home learning having taken place so far.  We will also add examples to the year group pages – keep them coming!!!

These resources can be used by parents and carers during the school closure.

Year group specific tasks are available on the individual class pages and are updated weekly.

To help provide a bit of routine or structure if you need it, here is a suggested timetable for pupils’ learning while they are at home. Some websites need you to register but all are free for at least a trial period.

These resources can be used to support children’s learning if they have access to IT at home. For those children that do not, we will ensure they are given tasks that will help them.  Please also check individual class pages for year group specific tasks.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/primary is an excellent resource for all year groups and especially useful for students in Year 2 or Year 6 who would normally be preparing for their SATs.

There’s a wealth of resources to help children continue with their topics here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach

In addition, we’d recommend that children should be encouraged to continue their reading.

There’s a list of recommended books here:

Instilling Inspiration has a You Tube channel which is designed to keep all of the young ones motivated with some nice simple activities they can do with their family throughout this period! There will be new videos every day.  They have also created an Inspire-at-Home Just Giving Page and will add a link to it on each video description – this would be a great opportunity to raise money for The Children’s Society charity, which helps vulnerable young people and makes sure no child feels alone through their various different outreach programs they organise with their volunteers.
