Remote home learning

Dear parents/carers,

Before the school closure we sent home your child’s e-learning passwords so you could access online resources to support your child's learning.  A website called Twinkl, have provided free access to their resources should you require further activities. In order to access this you need to create a new account and enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS.

 

Below you will see I have included a suggested daily timetable for you and your child. I have also included a weekly project that covers the curriculum that you can do as a family. 

 

Key additional resources are also included under the relevant headings below. A longer term learning pack is also found below should you need to use it, along with practical ideas and guidance. 

 

Thank you for your continued support,

 

Jess Cameron

Head of School

What happens if my child finds the learning projects too difficult?

Our first piece of advice to parents is that ALL children find elements of learning challenging at times so try not to worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. If this happens then make a note of what they found hard and move onto another learning activity - the school will cover any misconceptions when they return.

 

The Learning Projects which have been designed are based on the National Curriculum expectations for the year group your child is in. It may be that your child finds the tasks set within the Learning Project for their year group too challenging, for example if they have additional learning needs. If this is the case, then we advise that your child accesses the Learning Projects set to the age range below, for example a child in Year 3 or 4 could attempt the Year 1 or 2 Learning Project or even the EYFS Learning Project, if this is more appropriate for them and their needs.

In these coming weeks it’s very important to keep our bodies healthy.

There are many videos online to help us do this.

You could make a chart to record your daily exercise! We should all aim to do about 30 minutes a day to stay healthy.

Each week you could challenge yourself to try and do slightly more than the week before!

CHALLENGE

Can you do this every day for a week?  Once at 9am? Once at 12pm? Once at 3pm?
