Google Classroom - Home Learning and Blended Learning

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please note that home learning (homework) will now be set weekly on Google Classroom. There will be one Maths and one English task per week to complete. The Maths will relate to something we have been learning in class, and the English may be a reading comprehension activity or something more grammar-related which we have been learning about. These will be in addition to home reading (still with a minimum of three adult signatures per week in the Home Learning Journal please), and will be set on a Friday to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

The children should also be practising their weekly spellings, which are written/stuck in the Home Learning Journal on a Monday and are also set on Spelling Shed to practise as part of home learning. Passwords for all of our online learning subscriptions are stuck in the Passwords page of the Journal. The spelling test takes place on a Friday. We have also re-subscribed to Times Table Rock Stars which is an excellent platform for practising multiplication facts.

If your child is at home self-isolating, then work will be assigned on Google Classroom, found under Blended Learning and the relevant date for the beginning of that week. This is only in the event of your child being at home for a period of days/weeks but fit, healthy and therefore able to work. If your child is unwell, we clearly do not expect them to be completing work at home. Your child should not complete this work unless they are self-isolating because it may well be the work we are doing in school! Home learning (homework) will be clearly referenced as such.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office phone number (01963 250366) or the home learning email account:

Thank you for your support,

Mr Sweatman.
