Home Learning

FOR USE DURING THE PERIOD OF SCHOOL CLOSURE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR THE COVID-19 PHASED RETURN TO SCHOOL

At Wixams Tree Primary we strive to ensure our pupils receive the best possible education to support them in their learning journey. Our dedicated staff are working tirelessly to maintain continuity in your child’s education through the challenging times that we are currently facing as a country.

Please refer to your child’s class ‘Home Learning’ page for activities which the class teacher has set. Here you will be able to access Home learning Ideas and Timetables (KS1/KS2) with activities for your child.

As a school, we are also using ‘Purple Mash’ to set tasks for the children, which can be accessed through 2Dos and 2Blogs.

If you have any questions, regarding your child’s Home Learning please contact the school via email (info@wixamstreeprimary.co.uk), via phone (01234 608960) or ask your child to send a message using ‘2Blog’ on Purple Mash.

We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone. NHS Bedfordshire Health Community have produced a list of services that are offered to support with emotional wellbeing. Look after yourselves!

WHITE ROSE MATHS UPDATE

As of 4th May, White Rose has changed its approach to home learning. They have teamed up with BBC Bitesize and the timetable of what the children are learning and when will be a little different to what would have been the case if we were in school.

White Rose and BBC Bitesize have worked together to set out a 12-week learning plan which aims to:

  • make sure children understand the main concepts they need for their work next year
  • cover any new learning that they have not yet done in school.

So this means that some of the lessons will be recapping on what the children have learnt already and some will be introducing new learning (albeit a condensed version compared to what would be covered during the summer term if we were in school).

We will continue to use White Rose but we may set some additional tasks to cover any maths areas missed due to the sudden closure and to supplement any areas where we feel coverage of new areas may be a little sparse.

From next week, only the revision worksheets will be available on the White Rose website. Worksheets linked to the new learning from White Rose will be attached to daily blogs and included in home learning packs.
