Online learning

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

Our home learning resources are intended to support parents with their children’s learning at home. We hope you find them useful.

The resources cover:

  • Practice of key skills on a daily basis such as: spellings (high frequency words), reading, times-tables and phonics for younger children.
  • English, Maths and non-core subject learning across the week.
  • A balance of paper and online activities.

We are providing online resources for classes through Google Classroom. When children login with their, they will receive a message from their teacher and be directed to their learning.  Learning will be updated by your child’s teacher through the week.

Children will receive their personal logins in their home learning books. Instructions are included in the letter inside the front cover of the home learning book.

There is a PDF attached below which gives instructions as to how you can use the websites and online resources.  Please take time to go through this carefully.

Unfortunately, in current circumstances, there may be a time during which either your child’s teacher or a family member falls ill.  In this case they will not be able to provide learning.  However, the packs and online resources will keep you going.

The other thing we know you’ll all be thinking about is exercise and getting your children out of the house.  One idea is for them to write postcards to each other to keep in contact and walk out to post through friends letter boxes.  We will put a master copy in your packs for you.

From parent to parent, I will be sitting down with my children this weekend and compiling a timetable of each day through the week in order to incorporate structure in this unsettled period.  This will include learning, fresh air, a contribution to household chores and some down time.  This might be something you would like to do at the start of your home leaning book.

This is unprecedented and I predict there may be some teething problems. In the news, we have already heard about some websites crashing.  If you have any problems with your login please use the Deansfield contact address. and we will endeavour to help. 

Thank you for all your support for our school during this period,

Clara Daly and the staff at Deansfield
