Home learning for extended school closures or self-isolation at South Rise Primary School

Home learning for extended school closures or self-isolation at South Rise Primary School

It is important that children have the opportunity to continue their learning when they are unable to be in school and as such, we have provided guidelines and resources to support children to engage meaningfully in their education whilst at home. 

Our home learning resources are intended to support parents with their children’s learning at home but are not compulsory. We understand that parents are best placed to consider whether and how children use them. We hope you find them useful.

We advise that children do not spend longer than an hour for EYFS and KS1 and an hour and a half online. Therefore, a balance of paper and online activities is provided.

If your child does not have access to technology at home, please contact the school and we will be able to provide a paper pack.

The resources are updated weekly and cover:

  • Practice of key fluency skills on a daily basis such as: spellings (high frequency words), reading, times-tables and phonics for younger children.
  • English, maths and humanities learning across the week.

Parents and children can access their home learning through the online apps Showbie and Tapestry.

Children in KS1 and 2 will be sent learning via ‘Showbie’. The children all have a username and login in their Home Learning Journals. A video demonstrating how to login and use Showbie will be emailed to all parents as soon as possible.

Children in EYFS will be sent learning and ideas for activities at home via Tapestry. All parents and carers of children in Reception and Nursery should have emails and logins for this online app. If you are unable to login, please contact the school.

We aim to have all this information emailed to you as soon as possible.
