Supporting your child to learn at home
Whilst parents and carers are used to helping with homework and organising activities during school holidays, an extended period of learning away from school may well be something few have experienced. The thought of long periods of isolation and the effect this may have on your child’s progress might be worrying. Whilst we want to reassure parents that teachers in our schools are continuing to plan work for all pupils, we would also like to offer some guidance about how you as parents can support learning at home. As we are all unsure about how long schools will have to close for, it is our intention to produce advice for parents on a regular basis. Any specific questions or concerns that you may have regarding your child’s learning should, in the first instance, be addressed to the class teacher.
Each class will be provided with a daily timetable which will be uploaded to the individual class pages. There will be a tab on the left hand side which will give you the week beginning dates. Under this tab will be the individual days for that week. Each day will have the timetable and any supporting documents. The timetable itself will have links to any online support, including pre-recorded videos to support learning and then videos filmed by teachers explaining new concepts.
There will also be a celebration tab where examples of work will be uploaded each day. Please make sure you email your child’s work to the class teacher to enable us to share their efforts with everyone
