As we begin the Autumn term, here is some information about how we approach Home Learning at Naburn:
Home learning is put on Seesaw/Google Classroom and we are looking at ways to develop this further, for example using this instead of reading diaries as we are unable to send items like this home at present. Teachers look at at their Seesaw pages regularly so please encourage your child to use this communication tool and to post their work on there.
The children also have a log in for Purple Mash and Times Tables Rock Stars, which can be accessed at home, and we have also purchased a subscription to White Rose Maths https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
The DfE has developed a range of resources to further support schools and families during this time. If your child has to self isolate due to COVID, there are daily lessons for every subject on Bitesize, resources for every subject and year group on the Oak National Academy site and phonics videos on the Letters and Sounds Youtube channel – just click the pictures below to go to these sites.
Each week in school, we use a resource called Picture News for one of our Collective Worships. It is a super resource, based on recent news and always has one big question to make us all think. Every week, with our school newsletter, we send home ideas to use at home.
Each week we also watch the Yo-Yo Collective Worship, which this half term is all about Friendship http://www.yoyotrust.org.uk/collective-worship
Animal of the Week Each week, when we all visit our ‘future forest’, Mr Norris will be focusing on one British wild animal. If you would like some extra homework, then your child could research this animal and produce a fact-file or poster about it and upload it onto Seesaw. These will then be looked at on a Friday in Celebration Worship.
Animals are as follows:
w/b 28th Sep – bee
w/b 5th Oct – owl
w/b 12th Oct – frog
w/b 19th Oct – grass snake
We will add any new resources that we find and think you might enjoy to this page.
