Guidance for Parents

This page will be kept updated with links to resources to enable you to continue learning from home.

Please see information below:

  • On the school website, you will see a Home Learning link on the front page.  Under this link, you will see folders for each year group.  You will need to click on the year link that is relevant to your child and all work, resources and videos that they require will be featured.  This information will be updated twice weekly by our teaching staff and available from 9:00am onwards.

The information that you and your child will see is:

  • Daily Maths video – there will be a link to the White Rose website.  All lessons are numbered, your child must work from lesson 1 onwards, by watching the video and then completing worksheets 1 – 4 on their year group learning page.
  • Daily English video – this will feature a voice over from one of our staff, explaining the learning that is to take place.  At the end of the video a task will be set with different challenge levels. The task should be completed on paper.
  • Weekly Topic diagram featuring different activities to complete around their area of learning.  This will include Art, Geography, and History etc. All work to be completed on lined paper.

In the Home Learning page you will find a link to extra activities for children to complete.  This page will also be updated weekly.

On a day to day basis there will be a ‘daily retrieval task’, this is where the child will complete a short activity on previous learning. This is crucial so they retain learning in their long-term memory.
