Home Learning

Whilst the school is closed, the following resources can be used.  We have thought carefully about the resources we have provided here to ensure that you are able to share these with your child at home. The resources link to the topics your child has visited so far this year. By revisiting these, this will help commit this learning to memory and will give them something to refer back to and build upon. The activities and resources cover a range of curriculum subjects as well as activities focusing specifically on English and maths.

Here’s our home learning letter with guidance, expectations and ideas to support learning at home.
23 March 2020 – We provided this additional update with regards to home learning.

This page will grow and be added to depending on the period of time that families are required to self-isolate or, should the school close for a longer period of time.

All children have been given a project book and this can be used to record any work undertaken at home. At King Charles we also recognise that learning doesn’t have to be in a book so look forward to your child’s own learning based on research on areas that interest them most. There is an expectation that pupils will be engaged in learning whilst not at school and are well enough.

If you have any questions, please contact learningathome@king-charles.cornwall.sch.uk and a member of staff will get back to you within 48 hours, during ‘school days’. Our teachers would love to see photos of learning at home including completed pieces of work or images of your children being busy!

‘Key Skills’ are spellings, handwriting, reading, times tables and number bonds. Click on the links in this section for explanations and lots of ideas for how to keep the practise of these key skills interesting and fun. These are the core parts of learning and we would be so grateful if these areas could be done at home for half an hour a day. Prioritise these aspects of learning as they are the building blocks for everything else.
