School Closure Work

General websites that are suitable for all age groups are listed here, and class specific work can be found under each class below. We have decided not to prescribe a formal daily timetable as we do not want our families to feel any extra pressure at this time. Many of you are trying to juggle work commitments, pre-schoolers and a range of different aged children with limited access to devices.  

 

Encourage your child(ren) everyday to:

  • Read for 15 minutes  and talk about/ complete an activity on what they have read
  • Practice times tables  (use TT Rockstars, Purple Mash, Espresso or any other game/method!)
  • Practice spellings (use spelling frame, do a dictation, write sentences or do a word activity to practice year group word lists)
  • Do some daily exercise – Joe Wicks at 9am, a Daily Mile, bike ride or dance)

 

We would suggest an English and Maths task every morning then one of the themed learning tasks set by the teachers during an afternoon. Anything in addition that you or your child chooses from any of the website links or your own interests is great.

(If you access the twinkl resources they set a daily timetable with resources if that is what you need.)

You are really not trying to replicate school, but I do appreciate you may want some kind of structure. Your days must be organised to suit your personal situations. Stay well!

Reminder to parents regarding online safety

Within the current environment of online learning, we are, more than ever, aware of the importance of keeping all members of our school community safe when accessing online resources and content. Children may now be using a much wider range of online services, and parents may be concerned about the safety of these.

As we are increasingly referring you to websites, YouTube videos and Apps to enhance the learning experience for each child, we wish to stress the importance of the use of parental controls, security and privacy settings on personal devices. Unlike when using the secure school network, these are factors that we are unable to control remotely.

There are a number of specific resources concerning safety online already provided through the school website. Please click on the ‘Computing’ icon on the School Closure page to find these.

We would also like to direct you to the Government Guidance, which outlines what you can do to stay safe online during the coronavirus outbreak. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-staying-safe-online

 

Here is the link to the BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons. Each year group section provides a daily English, Maths and Topic task.
If your child is on the SEND register, please spend some time addressing their SAP targets 

If you would like to email some pieces of work or photographs to the class teacher during this period, please use the email addresses listed below.  The class-teacher will select some work for the class webpage. 3 Golden seed certificates will be awarded each Friday through schoolcomms.

All other emails should continue to be sent to the office address as usual:  office@yattendon.w-berks.sch.uk
