Helping your child learn from home (updated 19th June)
As some children have now returned to school while others remain at home, we would like to update you with how we can continue to support you with learning at home.
Teachers will continue to provide weekly home learning packs for all classes - even if some of that class have returned to school. This will provide continuity of learning opportunities between home and school. These packs will continue to be uploaded to the website each week and you will still be able to collect paper copies of the packs from the school office.
Each class now has an email address that can be used to send selected pieces of work directly to class teachers for feedback. Full details of how to do this are in the letter attached below (Class Email Addresses 22.6.20). Class email addresses will be added to weekly work packs and can also be located on each class 'Welcome Page.'
If you would prefer to access learning resources online then we would recommended BBC Bitesize resources (launched on April 20th) which provide a wide range of free activities for all age ranges and include videos, games, podcasts and interactive activities. These resources have been recommended by the government. You can register your child if you want to personalise their Bitesize account. The resource can be accessed using the following link;
Classroom secrets is also free to use and is perfect for Reception all the way up to Year 6. It has online maths and English, spelling, grammar and phonics video tutorials and enables interactive learning which your children can access independently. You can also download and print follow on worksheets if you choose. These are fun and in line with our national curriculum. You will need to sign up for free to access the online content (payment details are not necessary). You can access the resources here;
Islington Primary School advisory team have also started to produce weekly work-packs for schools and families to use and you can access these via the link below;
There are weekly lessons for each key stage and a focus subject of the week. The primary team will be constantly updating these resources and no log in details or passwords are required.
We hope these suggestions are helpful. The most important thing is that learning should be fun!
