School closure work

4th April 2020 Home Learning Update 

 

Dear Parents / Carers,
 
Since the school has closed we have set home learning tasks through the school website, sent packs of work home and Year 6 children have been accessing work through the SeeSaw app. This plan was always intended for the short term and to take us up until the Easter holidays. 
 
Over the Easter break we will not be setting any new work to complete. We feel it is important for children, teachers and parents to take a break from the home learning activities. 
 
We understand that some children many be finding the work difficult to complete or may become anxious about not completing tasks set. Furthermore, many parents will be supporting their children through the home learning tasks whilst completing their own work, we recognise that this has its challenges. We have thought carefully about the amount of work to set and the means of doing it. 
 
With it being highly unlikely that we will reopen during the first part of the Summer term we have developed a medium term plan for after Easter. 
 
Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5
Work will be set on the school website on new individual year group pages. These will be under the Children tab. The current school closure page will only be updated with general activities / links. 
The work will be set weekly and become live on the website from 20th April. This allows parents and children to look in advance about what work is coming up. 
The work will consist of a daily maths, English and foundation subject activity and have answers where possible. 
We would like the children to attempt the work however it is not essential they complete it and we will not be tracking how much work is completed. If a day is missed you can go back to it or start from the current day. 
 
Year 6
Will continue to use the SeeSaw app and follow the same routine as they are currently. 
 
All year groups 
For all year groups we are recommending that the children read as much as possible and complete 30-60 minutes of Timestables Rockstars per day. 
Where there is limited access to the internet, printers, paper or other resources please contact the school and we will try our best to assist. 
The current school closure page will still be updated with links to live lessons and activities that can be completed at any time
There is no expectation for the work to be resubmitted to school or to be brought in once completed.
 
For any questions please email teachers@courthousejunior.co.uk 
 
We will continue to adapt the work as we feel necessary and if you have any feedback please feel free to get in touch. Thank you for your support and understanding. 
 
Mr Little
