We have made arrangements to ensure that your child is provided with a range of appropriate learning tasks during the period of time that our school is closed.
Initially, your child will bring home a ‘pack’ of resources which should provide them with a week’s worth of work. Each day your child should complete the following:
- A handwriting task
- An arithmetic task
- A grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS) task
- A writing task
- A reading comprehension task
- A set of spellings (weekly)
In addition to the above tasks, your child should also access daily on-line activities through ‘Education City’ and ‘Times Table Rock Stars’. Your child has been given their log-ins for both of these sites.
We would also ask that your child reads for at least 30 minutes every day. Three reading books have been lent to each child to ensure this is achievable.
We have provided you with overviews of upcoming topics that your child will be studying in a range of subjects. Should they wish to, your child could independently research one, or more, of these topics and produce a piece of work to demonstrate what they have learnt. This work could take the form of a poster, a pamphlet, a PowerPoint, a model, or indeed any format that appeals to them.
Finally, we have also sent two exercise books home for your child to record their work in.
From the second week of closure onwards, we will send you, via email and our website, daily learning tasks for your child to complete. On-line ‘Education City’ and ‘Times Table Rock Stars’ activities will also be provided.
During the closure, your child’s teacher will contact you by telephone once a week. They will be able to help with any work-related problems that may have arisen.
If, at any time, you wish to contact your child’s teacher please use the school’s email: firstname.lastname@example.org , or leave a message on the school’s voicemail at 0208 647 7324. A message will be passed to your child’s teacher and they will endeavour to contact you.
