On this page, you will find some activities that will help you with your learning at home. The grids accessible via the link below have been designed so that you can choose activities in any order. There are also links to websites that will help you with your learning.
Seesaw, an online learning platform, was introduced during the summer term to enable children to access activities each day, upload photographs of completed work and respond to teachers' messages. Your child can ask any questions they have or share their work using Seesaw. Children new to school during the academic year 2020-21 will be issued with access codes. The system will continue to be used in the event of any future school closures.
Oak National Academy has been established to support learning at home, and you can find a link to the Years 3 and 4 content below.
Parents and carers, please feel free to choose activities from different key stages if you feel that they are appropriate for your child's individual needs.
You could complete:
- 1 activity from the maths grid
- 1 activity from the English grid
- 1 activity from the research/topic grid. This could be completed over a number of days.
Keep a record of what you have completed in your book. Each day, write the date at the top of the pages you use. You can earn a certificate for completing the set challenges when you come back to school. You may find the daily timetable a helpful way of structuring your days.
Seesaw Home Learning
Seesaw is an online learning platform that enables children to complete set activities, upload their learning and respond to messages from staff. The system was used effectively during lockdown, and it will be updated for the new academic year. If remote learning is required once again in the event of a partial or total school closure, lessons and resources will be uploaded and shared using Seesaw. Children will be encouraged to use Seesaw also for homework activities during the autumn term. If you have any questions, or require any support, please do not hesitate to contact us at school.
