 A Parent’s guide to Home Learning for KS1 and KS2

 

Expectations

As a school, we have plans in place for home learning to start immediately after a partial or whole school closure. A questionnaire went out to families to assess any barriers for home learning so we can address and support you as much as possible. The expectations for a second closure are slightly different than the previous closure and follow the Governments guidelines for home learning.

 

Weekly Routine

Work will be uploaded onto Eschools under the class tab. If you are having problems logging onto Eschools please contact the school immediately.

Each day there will be a Maths and Literacy lesson, these will be taught from the class teacher via a pre-recorded video with consolidation work being attached. The content will be new learning following on from the day the bubble was isolated. There will also be additional projects each day around the wider curriculum which links to the children’s current class Topic.

 

Submitting work

The content of the online lessons will be new learning so teachers will require work to be submitted. This is for two reasons.

  1.        To assess if the children will need any extra support and input on return to school
  2.        To ensure the children are receiving regular feedback during the closure.

There are two ways in which you can submit the requested work.

  1.        Take a photograph and send it via Eschools direct to the class teacher.
  2.        There will be a box outside school for work to be dropped off, the office will then scan and email it to the class teacher the same day.

Expectations for submission:

  •          Monday, Tuesday and Thursday - Maths
  •          Wednesday - Reading Comprehension
  •          Friday - Writing task

 

McKie Mastery

As a school we have followed the McKie Mastery approach since September 2019. The children are used to this way of teaching so online lessons will continue in the same format to ensure learning is consistent and purposeful. There is an online video to explain the McKie Mastery Approach which will be sent out immediately to parents effected by the partial or full closure.
