Home Learning During School Closure
Home Learning during this unusual time of school closure is new to all of us; parents, pupils and staff alike.
At The Whiteoak Academies we aim to support our families in as many ways as possible and this page will put all of the information you need in one place.
We are very mindful of the pressure that homeschooling could create on top of the requirement for parents / carers to be working from home and we do not want to add to this. Therefore our 'Home Learning' has been designed as a 'Menu' for parents / carers and pupils to select the learning tasks they would like to complete each day. We would like to encourage each child to take part in:
* Reading/short phonic activities. - Each child will have a "Bug Club" account to access appropriate reading materials. (Your child's Class Teacher will be able to help with any issues arising from this.)
* Mental maths task (Number Bonds, Morning Maths and Times Table Rock Stars etc.)
* Maths tasks via "White Rose" - https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/
* Writing tasks over a number of days, once or twice a week, depending upon the activity.
* Tasks from across the wider curriculum, such as Science, History, Geography etc...
* Tasks aimed at promoting WELL-BEING and fitness.
The learning is available on each Year Group website page and the links below will take you straight to your child's specific Year Group.
