LEARNING FROM HOME – resources and ideas for children and families

Supporting our children and families during the COVID-19 pandemic

Following the government’s announcement that schools will close to the majority of pupils from the 5th January 2021, we know many families may be feeling uncertain about how to support their children and continue their learning while at home for an extended period of time.

As a school we are committed to supporting all our families and pupils during this time and have created a number of resources that can support you in keeping your child well, happy, healthy and educated while away from school.

Please find below links to the different year groups in school. Our teachers have written letters/provided an overview of learning that will support your child/children to continue to learn at home. We hope that you find the resources really useful and easy to access.

We have also provided links to lots of online learning resources and activities you can access on our Learning Zone

We know that some families will be worried about how to structure a day of learning if children are not in school and unable to go out in the world as they normally would do. These are unprecedented times and so we hope by offering a few ideas of how to organise this time you will feel more supported.

We have found that at school, children feel more steady and cope better when they have a clear routine in place. As children’s schooling will be taking place at home at the moment we have included an example of a daily schedule you could follow or adapt with some ideas of activities and expectations.

Teachers will be continuing to keep in contact via the website and twitter. If you do not yet follow us on twitter now would be a perfect time to do this. Simply follow this link: Hunslet Moor Primary Twitter

Please share with us the fun things you are doing. We will be so excited to see what you are doing!

Contacting your child’s class teacher

During this lockdown, we appreciate you might have questions for your child’s teachers, or need support or advice with home learning.

Please use ClassDojo to contact their teacher via Messages on the app.

We recently wrote to all families explaining that we are moving ClassDojo and you can find that information here.

Your child’s teacher will respond to you as soon as possible.
