Guide to learning at home
We have provided a number of things to help your child keep learning while schools are closed.
Home learning will:
- give a broad balance of relevant subjects/ activities
- be planned in a way which will work at home
- enable our children to show that they are ‘excellent learners’
Children know they have work to complete at home.
For each year group (reception to Year 6) we will publish learning for the week, for:
- Wider curriculum - including topics & projects
Nursery children also have a general home learning sheet that covers the early years curriculum.
We have set out each week's learning as a series of suggested daily activities. However, the time may look very different for each family. Building in time to look after each other, be physical, creative and relax is as important as completing the set activities. You need to decide what works for you and your family.
You could do more of the activities on one day and fewer on another, or you may find it helpful to have a more structured approach. It may help to give clear times for doing activities and clear times for breaks.
For details, please go to the individual year group page for your child: Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6. We have also published some suggestions to support those with additional needs.
There is also lots of useful help in the Parent Support section. We know that parents/carers may have a tough time ahead, managing many roles.
We will continue to review what we do. We will try to find the best ways to support you and your children during the period of school closure.
Staying safe online: During this time children may be accessing a lot of resources via the internet. Please highlight to the children the importance of staying safe online. If they see anything that worries them, remind them that they should always talk to an adult. Have a look together at our online safety posters.
If you have any worries at home, tell an adult that you trust.
You also can contact Childline about anything. Whatever your worry, it's better out than in. Call them free on 0800 1111 or contact them online.
