Spring Term 2021 Remote Learning

Remote Learning Information

We have broken the learning into days, to cover what they would have learned at school but please just do what you can.

If your child finds something tricky, feel free to consolidate their learning before moving on. We put the resources you need on the website ordered by day. If you have any questions, please use the class email to contact the Year One teachers.

 

We suggest:

  • You read every day and ask your child questions about what they have read to check their understanding. At school the children are used to having a focus lens in Guided Reading which is what they focus on and think about when they are reading and then discuss afterwards.
  • Your child completes 1 task for Phonics each day
  • Your child spends time on a task every day for Writing (in Year 1 children in school spend approx. 30 minutes writing)
  • For Maths, you spend up to an hour either online learning (Mathletics) and/or following the suggested activities
  • Your child completes one topical learning activity set each day (this may include Science, Geography, PSHE, PE, RE or Art

 

Please remember, any learning you do is beneficial to your child. There’s no right or wrong way of carrying out these tasks. Every child learns differently – don’t worry just have a go!

 

We would love to see the learning the children are doing at home, feel free to email us with photos, work etc. on either:
