Home Learning During CoVid19 Closure
We recognise that this can be a very difficult time for families so we have compiled useful contacts for parents if required during these uncertain times.
In addition, EPIC have created the following Adult Self Care Resource Pack to support you in boosting your resilience, reduce anxiety and ensuring your overall positive wellbeing throughout these unprecedented times.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by everything you’re hearing about coronavirus disease (COVID-19) right now. Children might find it difficult to understand what they are seeing online or on TV – or hearing from other people – so they can be particularly vulnerable to feelings of worry. By having open and supportive discussions with your children, you can help them understand, cope and boost their resilience. The link below from EPIC will help to support your children’s understanding of COVID-19
EYFS and KS1 - Work will be sent via school e-mail on a Monday morning with the work that the children are required to complete each week.
KS2 - Work will be set on Microsoft TEAMs on a Monday morning for the week that the children are required complete each week. We recognise that for families where parents are still working, or those where there are a number of children trying to access resources and your support, this can be a challenge. In these circumstances, please just do what you can and do not hesitate to get in touch if you or your child are finding things challenging.
We have also created a bank of excellent resources and websites to help support you at home.
Home Learning Guide for Parents
BBC Bitesize offers additional help for children and parents. New Maths and English lessons will be available every day for all ages. These will be created with resources from Bitesize, other parts of the BBC and other education providers. The content of these lessons will be backed up by new videos, practice tests, educational games and articles. Regular lessons on other core subjects, including science, will also be available. Mums and dads can get advice on how to teach anyone who is home-schooling and the Bitesize website will also have guides for pupils with SEN (special educational needs).
Lessons on Screen - BBC iPlayer and the Red Button service will host Bitesize Daily. These are six different 20 minute shows, each designed to target a specific age group, from ages five to 14, and for pupils throughout the UK. Experts and teachers will be involved, covering what should be learned that day for the different year groups and key stages. Maths, Science and English will be covered in dedicated programmes, and other subjects such as History, Geography, Music and Art will also be covered.
We are encouraging children to read every day and be read to. Mrs Darlington has compiled some recommended new reads below
