Home learning is provided each week to support or consolidate learning in class. It allows all children to use and apply their new skills within a different context. Furthermore, talking about an activity/learning task with someone new helps children to understand the work on a new and deeper level.
Weekly Home Learning will be set as a Seesaw activity each Friday for Year 1. Each week, the activity will seek to consolidate learning already done in class. Activities will support learning in a variety of curriculum areas over the term and are designed to encourage adult and child discussion. Please complete the activity with you child and post their learning on Seesaw by the following Wednesday.
Children will receive a levelled reading book which will be changed on Tuesday each week. We ask that children read at home at least 5 times a week and you can record this in their reading record.
At home we also encourage your children to read for pleasure. We will provide all children with a library book that you can share together. Library books are also changed on Tuesdays. Please refer to the reading booklet on the Reading section of our webpage to help you with questions to ask your children.
Despite the many precautions and guidance in place, there will come a time where individuals, classes or even the whole school must be shut for health reasons following advice from Public Health England. At this stage, we must ensure that we have a strong learning provision for pupils unable to attend school due to COVID related illness or isolation. The learning provision is made up of a combination of work packs, online learning, online resources and engagement activities. In most cases, the rest of the class or the rest of the school will still be in school learning face to face, so this is why it is called 'blended learning' as it will be an educational provision which is a mix of face to face, online, at home and in school.
