Home learning

All information regarding home learning will be available on this page.

We will be adding information to Google Classroom. This will be used to set assignments and give feedback. Your child will have their login details inside their Home Learning Book. Please speak to Miss Kaiper for more information.

Our class code is: gccivwg

These are unprecedented times for us all, and we appreciate your support in working with us to ensure these circumstances remain positive and productive for your children.

Best Wishes,

Miss S. Kaiper and Mrs F. Gibson

DAILY TASKS

Year 1

  • Phonics Play website - pick one game to play for around 10 minutes each day. The children should select to revise all phases. Username: march20 Password: home
  • Children should revise their phonics flashcards every day. These can be made at home, using the flashcard sheets provided in learning packs. This should only take around a minute at a time.

Year 2

  • Children will be set up to 5  TestBase questions each day for both Maths and SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar). These will be assigned on Google Classroom each day.

All children

  • Should access Maths Quiz every day for approximately 30 minutes. This website is matched to the scheme we follow in school. Username: darrington Password: darrington1819. Please note, mathsquiz.net is organised by 'stages'. Each stage equates to a year group, so Year 1 would choose 'Stage 1' questions, and Year 2 would choose 'Stage 2'.
  • Should access a game such as TT Rockstars or Funky Mummy every day for approximately 15 minutes.
  • Children should be read to by an adult every day. This can be any book of their choice.
  • They should be heard reading an age-appropriate book from the Oxford Owl E-Books every other day. This website has phonetically decodable books for children right up to 11 years old.

WEEKLY TASKS

Each week, children will be set one task in a number of subjects. These can be completed at any point over the week, and don't need to be done in one sitting. These assignments will be posted weekly on Google Classroom.

  • Topic - one question to research each week. Your findings can be presented in whichever way you like in your home learning book. It is expected you will spend approximately 2 hours each week on this task.
  • Science - one task or investigation each week. We will try to keep these as practical as possible whilst still following the national curriculum. You will be expected to provide written evidence of completion on Google Classroom. It is expected you will spend approximately 1 hour each week on this task.
  • English - One written piece of work each week. It is preferable that the children write this into their home learning book and a photo is then uploaded to Google Classroom for evidence. It is expected that each week you will spend approximately 1 hour studying the genre of writing and understanding the success criteria, and 1 hour writing the task.
  • Comprehension - One piece of reading each week with questions. It is expected this will take approximately 30 minutes.
  • Activity Passport - This is a document put together by the government with suggested activities for each school year group. We hope that you might pick 1 or 2 activities each week to try and complete. The children could then write or draw in their home learning book about the experience.
  • RE - The children will also be set a creative RE project for each half term.
