Home Learning Year 6 Jan 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

As a school, it is our duty to ensure that we are still providing an education to those pupils who cannot come into school for reasons surrounding COVID-19. When considering how we can best support our pupils, we have looked at improving the quality of our existing offer and have also used feedback from the parent survey to inform our decisions. 

Remote lessons will be set to run alongside the lessons that have been planned by the class teacher who is delivering these from home/school. Your child will have access to home learning in a variety of ways.

We are using Showbie platform to deliver home learning resources, videos and lessons and a log in will be your child’s diaries.  If your child does not have access, we have laptops/I pads we can send home. Alternatively, your child can access the CGP books and paper packs. Also, if your child would like to do any extra learning, we have provided paper packs too. 

Children will need logins TT Rockstars, Spelling Shed, Purple mash, Showbie and Maths Flex.

Please upload photographs of your child completing their tasks on Showbie.
