Home learning

Home learning 

Over the next few days, weeks and maybe months we will be working with you to do whatever we can to support you and your child through this time. Outlined below are the steps we have currently put in place. We want to focus on two main areas – Communication and Learning.

Communication

Keeping in touch. This term, we will be attempting to phone you and your children once a week. The phone call will be made by one of our team but it may not be your child's class teacher.

In addition, teachers will be responding, via the email addresses below, to answer questions about learning etc between 11am and 1.00pm. You can ask them questions at any time via email and they should respond during these times.

Learning

On this page, you will find some ideas to support you in home learning. 

For specific learning, our year group pages set out weekly projects based on the BIG question for your year group. The tasks are organised by subject and you and your children can plan out your week using these ideas.

We hope you will share your learning with us at the end of each day via the class emails.

Home Learning tips
To support your child (and yourselves) during self isolation, it will be important to put in place a routine. Obviously, this will be different for you all depending on your home circumstances. One of the key ideas for managing home learning is to set up a schedule and this should be a balance of different learning and activities. Reading through different advice about home schooling, children should also be involved in chores at home and these should form part of the daily routine. We have attached a blank timetable for a week which you can use or you may want to look at the different fun ways families have created their home school timetables! If you have an idea then please let us know via the homelearning@stwilfrids-hh.school email address. Also, if you have any images of the fun activities you manage to complete then please forward those as well so we can share them with the whole community.
