'Learn, Grow and Achieve Together Through God's Love'
We have set up a 'Home Learning' page under the 'Key Information' tab. This will provide more information for you about how to access a quality education for your children at home. Please remember to check your child's class page under the 'Children' tab for regular updates from your classteacher. Please collect a paper pack if you cannot access technology. If you would like more information please phone the DFE coronavirus helpline 0800 046 8687 or visit the full government guidance at:https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19
Thank you for your tremendous support and understanding in this matter, if anything positive can come out of this then it is the wonderful community spirit and offers of help that have been overwhelming.
Your child will have a home reading book and this will be changed weekly. Initially books are wordless and encourage your child to talk about the pictures, characters, setting and events. We later send home books to coincide with your child's phonics learning in class whether this be initial sounds or texts based around specific graphemes.
Your child's first reading book will be sent home after baseline activities are completed in class.
We will use the electronic learning platform, Seesaw, to set a weekly homework task every Monday. This will be a Phonics Activity based on our learning in class. This will give you the opportunity to extend this learning further at home with your child. There may also be mathematical or topic-based learning activities set during the half term- these will be play-based and practical.
Further details about Seesaw will be sent home when we begin to set homework tasks, which will not be until later in the first part of the Autumn Term.
Seesaw is also a lovely way to share your child's achievements or family activities from home. I will then add these to your child's Learning Journey Book at school so as to show their special moments and memories.
A half termly Learning Log project will also be set each half term.
You can find details of these in the Learning Logs section of our Class Page.
