Welcome to the autumn term 2020!

Introduction

The Home Learning will now be provided through Google Classroom and Tapestry, in the event that your child's class is self isolating, due to a positive test of Covid-19.

 

Pupils can access this on the Wonde dashboard via the CHILD LOGIN button on the homepage and can freely use Timetables Rockstars and other apps, as well as following some suggested links below. To access the weeks learning, please select the Google Classroom tab. From here, you can view the materials/assignments that are set for the day and then 'Hand In' once your child has completed it.

 

Please make sure whichever device your child is on; internet safety is key. Do not leave your child unattended on the internet for long periods and aim to engage with the activities that they are doing. Please visit the Aspire eSafety page at the link below for further guidance.

 

 

Helpful pointers for home educating

Motivation is key and regular sessions each day will help with this. If your child feels saturated, try a different task. Reward the effort made with a star (stuck or hand-drawn) at the end of the work.

Create a daily timetable, design it with your children. Factor in fun times for all. Learning time needs to have a different feel to playtime. 

Read the task in advance of your child so you have any idea of what they need to do.  If you have several children can the older children support the younger ones? Can you all do the same activity at times (art, music, science?), to avoid your attention being pulled in many ways.

Make sure there is a balance to the day, ensuring plenty of exercise. Have a mixture of handwritten and online tasks.

If your child is struggling, reassure them. We often use the phrase, “You haven’t got it yet but one day you will”. 

And BREATHE!  You've totally got this...
