Home Learning

Welcome to Smarden School Home Learning Zone!

 

We have created this page to give Smarden Primary School pupils and their carers the guidance and resources they need during the period of school closure beginning on 23 March 2020. 

 

The most important thing at this time, by far, is for all of us to stay safe and well, to follow advice about avoiding contact with others, and - as far as possible - to feel happy and cared for. Everything else is secondary to that. 

 

The thing we would most like to encourage you to do as parents and carers is to read daily with your children. Choosing books, taking quizzes, and talking about your children's reading can be supported by Accelerated Reader, and the school will be setting up a book-loan service by post. Please email Mrs Miller if you are interested in this, stating the name and year of your child.

 

For the duration of the school closure, Audible are making a wide range of children's stories available for free as audio books that you can listen to with your children. 

 

We hope that children will find time to enjoy all sorts of learning activities with their families at home during this time, and that is what this website is for. We hope you find it useful. We will be adding to it as time goes by and will alert you via DoJo about any important changes.

 

On this page, you will find:

 

  1. Login links to our key online learning resources. These can help children stay in touch with their classmates as well as promoting their learning. 
  2. Links to the home learning pages for each of our five classes, with weekly learning plans
  3. Ideas for fun activities in PE, Art, History, Science, and other areas of our wider curriculum

 

1. KEY ONLINE LEARNING RESOURCES

If you do not know your login details, please email office@smarden-tkat.org 

 

2. CLASS PAGES

  • Each class page has a learning grid summary and resources - updated each week. 
  • Teachers will continue to use ClassDoJo for all announcements and to share resources
  • Please follow this link for instructions about how to set up your child's DoJo account to submit work to their teacher - you can choose Web, iOS, or Android instructions, depending on your device. (If that doesn't work, you could look at the PDF at the bottom of this page with an alternative method.)

 

3. WIDER CURRICULUM

Two fantastic starting points for all subject areas are BBC Bitesize Primary and the BBC Teach website. Here you will find general advice about how to approach home learning, and also thousands of free videos, lessons, and activities for children of different ages. 

 

Planbee also provide excellent teaching resources. They are setting up free online learning sessions for primary children during the current closure. You can register here.

 

 

We have created a blank home learning timetable (PDF available below) that you and your children can print out - or make your own version of - to plan your week together. Structure, and clear expectations are important for all learners!
