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.
In Year 5, home learning will be set on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday via Google Classroom. This could include a range of activities that aim to aid revision of prior learning or broaden children's knowledge.
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.
