Home Learning  




What will home learning look like?


We wanted to just update you with what ‘learning’ may look like now that the Summer Term is imminent. Firstly, please remember that when it comes to ‘home learning’ we would like you to do as little or as much of this as you can- there is absolutely no pressure. We know that many of you will be working at home yourselves, trying to teach multiple children, having challenges with internet speeds etc., so please do not worry if things don't quite go to plan. If in doubt, ask your child to pick up a book and enjoy reading, do a fun Joe Wicks workout (I would suggest supportive clothes if you are joining in by the way – we found this out at school…. ????) or even just go on a minibeast hunt in the garden!

Whilst the children are missing education in school, we are sure that they are learning many wonderful life skills at home with you, as well as spending time with their families. Please be assured that our amazing team of teachers will pick up where they left off, once children return to school and everything returns to normal. In school we differentiate learning based on the needs of the children. Some teachers may be in contact with you to direct you towards the year group above/ below your child’s current year group. If for example your child is finding maths for their year group too much of a challenge, please feel free to have a look at the year group below. Likewise, you can also look at the year above.

English Home Learning

Each week, teachers will be uploading a weekly English plan to your child’s class page. This will have an activity per day along with supporting resources. Please note that you do not have to print worksheets off. Your child can simply write their answers onto a piece of paper or notebook. Teachers will also be uploading weekly spelling and grammar activities (and phonics if you are in Year 1). Please also do check your child’s class page for a range of other exciting websites that have been collated for you to use. These range from teaching videos to websites that allow you to access e-books for free.

Maths Home Learning

As you know, over the last few weeks we have been directing you to the White Rose website for maths learning. We have feedback from parents and children to say that they were really disappointed when the worksheets (which accompany the videos) were no longer freely available- we were disappointed about this too! We have made the decision as a school to purchase the ‘Premium Package’ which now means that teachers have access to the worksheets, along with some other great resources. Unfortunately, we can’t upload the worksheets to the school website but we will be sending them out via email. We will be sending the worksheets to you (via Arbor). The videos, that go with the worksheets, are still freely available on the White Rose website. We hope that you continue to find the worksheets useful but please do ask if you have any questions. If you have been accessing a year below/above for your child, then please us so that we can send you the relevant worksheet.

Wider Curriculum

Below you will find  a Topic choosing grid uploaded to this webpage. There will be 12 activity ideas covering a range of subjects. Some are open ended creative tasks, and some are more structured and have supporting documents uploaded alongside them. The red font indicates where there is a supporting document. As we have said before, there is no pressure to complete all of these tasks and your feedback is gratefully received. The Topic grid will stay the same until half term at least, when we will review it based on parental feedback. 


HELP! 
If there are things that you simply do not understand about any aspect of what is on the website, please do let us know. We want to get it right, but please understand that we are just as new to this online teaching situation as you are!  You can contact your teacher at jlangton@wadebridgeprimary.co.uk, hhalpin@wadebridgeprimary.co.uk or janetkeat@wadebridgeprimary.co.uk
Us teachers are really looking forward to hearing from you and your children. You are welcome to send pictures of home learning, messages or questions via the email address. However, as you know, many of us teachers have children of our own to look after and so may be completing our ‘work’ at a range of times. We also have other work to complete at home so may not be signed in to our email accounts. Therefore, an instant reply should not be expected but we will be in contact as soon as possible. 


What has everyone been up to!?
 If you'd like to share some of your pictures, email them to the addresses above and ask your adult to write a sentence to give their permission for these to be uploaded onto the webpage. Keep up all your hard work - we are so impressed!

We will be adding photos below so you can have a look what home learning your friends have been up to.


Best wishes, 

Mrs Halpin, Mr Langton and Mrs Keat
