Below you will find many resources which can be used at home during the current school closures. We would recommend trying to adhere to a structured daily timetable with a range of learning, practical and physical activities spread over the day. This should include some time outdoors and some 'down' time. Learning at home in small numbers can be very intense and we wouldn't recommend 9-3 sat at a table. Scheduling regular breaks is important. Try to enjoy this unusual time and document your activities on our Facebook page and through your child's Class Dojo page.
The National Curriculum, detailing all requirements for all children, can be found here - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum
The National Curriculum does not contain activity ideas but outlines the coverage in different age groups.
All classes have now been registered on 'Class Dojo.'
It is an online platform which connects teachers with their pupils and families. It allows families to share photos and videos of their home learning allowing teachers to add comments. It also allows teaching staff to upload activities which you can complete and add photos and videos to.
Teachers will be adding 3 activities a week for each phase to try. These will be open ended activities which can be completed independently or with the rest of the family. These activities are not compulsory but should help in offering some hands on, enjoyable learning which is easily accessible at home. Teachers will leave comments on photos and videos posted from these activities.
You are also welcome and encouraged to add other photos of any other home learning, activities or experiences you would like to share with your child's class teacher.
You can also message your child's class teacher through the messaging feature.
