Home Learning - Week 1
The company FSC has provided us with some ideas for parents to encourage outdoor learning for their children.
The DfE have created a virtual school called the Oak National Academy. This is an online school led by teachers which your child can access each day at https://www.thenational.academy . The website will run on any device as long as it has a web browser (we have managed to get it running on our smart TV that is 7 years old!!!) I would strongly ask that you use this to support learning at home.
The lesson typically last up to an hour and there are three a day and cover an English lesson, a foundation lesson and a maths lesson. The sessions follow the same structure we use in school with some quick quizzes, instructional teaching and then a quick quiz.
On a personal level, I have found them to be great and have dramatically reduced the stress of home teaching my two over the three days they have been doing them. My children have LOVED them.
We have linked the website on Yammer as it will complement the work from your class teachers. If you use them, please publish some examples on Yammer.
Hope you are all well,
