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. Some of the resources are revisiting some of the topics your child has met already this year and by revisiting these, this will help commit this learning to memory and will give them something to refer back to and build upon.
Some activities are some stand-alone themes and topics that we know your child will enjoy as well as some whole school themes so that families can join in with learning together. The activities and resources cover a range of curriculum subjects as well as activities focusing specifically on English and maths.
At the start of our period of closure, we shared this letter to help explain our plans, expectations and provide ideas: home learning letter
23 March 2020 – We provided this additional update with regards to home learning.
‘Start of Summer Term‘ update letter to parents to reassure you over expectations around 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 some learning whilst not at school and are well enough.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com 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 the section below 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.
Additional Learning Resources
- These are lists of suggested resources to help you in supporting your children at home.
- Please use any resources that seem appropriate to your child’s needs and the level of support you are able to provide.
This is not a list of ‘must-dos’ but instead a lists of ‘might helps’.
