Home Learning

Weekly homework/home study

Teachers in Nursery and Reception set monthly ‘next steps’ for the children using Evidence Me.

Teachers in Y1 set weekly tasks using Evidence Me.

As well as ongoing reading, maths tasks and spelling activities, teachers in Y2 – Y6 will be setting home learning each week using a wide range of online resources available to the children including..

  • White Rose Maths
  • Times Tables Rock Stars
  • Purple Mash
  • Oak National Academy
  • BBC Bitesize
  • Use of Microsoft Teams to set assignments and share resources

 

Short term home study (for pupils where they or a member of their household may be isolating with diagnosed or undiagnosed C19 symptoms or are awaiting test results)

All year groups:

If your child is at home either isolating, waiting for testing or shielding, it is important they complete daily home school activities.  As a school, we use the government approved remote learning programme called Oak National Academy.   This online classroom has been made by teachers to deliver high quality video lessons.  Please use the link below to access lessons specific to the year group of your child.

There will be a daily Maths, English and Foundation subject video with tasks.  Any home schooling your child completes, can be sent to admin@standrews236.herts.sch.uk and will be forwarded to their teacher.

 

 

Longer term home study (for pupils whose bubbles have closed including the teacher, or in the case of whole school closure).

Teachers in Nursery to Y1 will use Evidence Me, an online journal to model learning and set tasks. Parents upload evidence of their children’s learning and teachers give regular feedback.

Teachers in Y2 – Y6 will use Microsoft Teams to deliver a full curriculum to the children in their class – 3 lessons per day – English, Maths and one other subject, following their medium term planning. This will be in addition to the expectation of daily reading, spelling/phonics practice and number patterns/times tables.

Each assignment will be introduced by the teacher, with either written instructions or using a short pre-recorded video clip. The child will then have independent learning to access using  various resources, catering for a wide range of learning styles and strengths. Completed work can be handed in thorugh Teams and written/verbal feedback given as necessary.

Each week the children will be invited to a whole class teacher feedback session via Teams video – an informal opportunity to see their peers and chat with their teacher about their learning.

A  year group specific email address will be provided upon closure of the bubble, should parents or carers have queries about any element of home learning. Teachers will check these and respond on a set time each day.

If parents wish to discuss something other than their child’s home learning with their class teacher, we ask that an email is sent to admin@standrews236.herts.sch.uk which will be passed on to the relevant member of staff.
