Home Learning

Provision of learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, teachers have been using Google Classroom to share the following home learning until things get back to normal at school:

Daily

- A 20 minute Reading task
- An independent English activity
- A guided Maths activity (which can be completed with a parent/carer)
- An independent Maths activity (which can be completed by your child independently)

Weekly

- A History, Geography or Science task that can be completed throughout the week.
- Suggestions for Music and Art home learning

Posts will appear on Google Classroom either in your child’s class ‘Stream’ or under the ‘Classwork’ tab, where children can submit their learning back to their teacher. All children have been given their login details for Google Classroom and shown how to use it. If you cannot find your child’s login, please email your child’s teacher who will be able to provide it for you. The children also have their logins for other online learning platforms that we use such as Spelling Shed, Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars. Teachers will provide feedback on Google Classroom for submitted work only on a weekly basis if they are able to.

The downloadable guide below shows you how to log in to Google Classroom. It also shows you how to join your child’s class using a code should you discover that your child is not registered to a class once you have logged in to Google Classroom.
