Remote/Blended Learning

Here is some information to help you and your child/children as we work together to continue our learning whether at home or school: 

Remote learning is put on Seesaw/Google Classroom. 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. Teachers can then mark this work using written comments, spoken comments or ‘likes’.

Google Classroom

For more information, please see our guidance document: Naburn Remote Learning January 2021

Click here for instructions about logging in to Google Classroom from home.

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, which means your child can watch a lesson and then use their White Rose Maths Book to record their work https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning 

The DfE has developed a range of resources to further support schools and families during this time. 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.

Click here for the Picture News Learning at Home resources. The Picture News website contains an assembly each week which your child can access and there is a facility for your child to send a response in too https://www.picture-news.co.uk/discuss

Each week we also watch the Yo-Yo Collective Worship, which for the Spring term are exploring some important Christian values. This week is all about endurance.

Click here to watch – you will also find the videos from previous weeks.

Animal of the Week Each week, we are looking at a different animal. This week it is the Great Crested Newt. Why not find out more about this creature? You could draw it, describe it or even record yourself telling Mr Norris all about it, like David Attenborough would! Here are the animals:

Music Your child can use their usual chrome book log in to access a new music programme we have purchased through York Music Hub. It is called Charanga Yumu. https://www.yorkmusichubdigital.org.uk/site/log-in/ Here they can find an array of activities to develop their music skills (and also their maths!). Look out for Tune the Tables, Music World and a weekly music lesson too.
