Should your child need to self-isolate or if we experience a local lockdown we will use the resources on this page to continue your child’s learning at home so that no future learning is lost. Teachers will continue to communicate with parents or guardians using ClassDojo. This page is for children in Year 1 who are pupils in class 2 with Mrs Lewis or Class 3 with Miss Dixon.
Your child must follow the daily schedule for their year group on the Oak National Academy. They can also access Education City, Oxford Owl, The Spelling Shed and Numbots to support their learning at home.
Click the link below to access Oak National Academy, the online classroom made by teachers, for teachers. You will have access to free, high-quality video lessons and resources to support your child’s learning in English, maths, science and the Foundation subjects at home. Each lesson is an hour-long. They are delivered by a teacher, with a pre-recorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password, you can access our lessons on any device, and pupils only need materials they can find at home.
In Year 1 it is vital that you please continue to read on a daily basis with your child as this is an essential skill to support their writing. In class we are working on becoming fluent readers. Make sure that you read every day with your child. This could involve you reading a book to your child, with your child, or most importantly asking your child to read to you. Visit Oxford Owl for free eBooks that link to your child’s book band. There are also linked play activities for each book which make reading fun. You can create a free account at: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/
You will need to use your own email address and set up a password to access this site.
You could help at home by encouraging children to write ‘golden sentences’. These are sentences that begin with a capital letter, have finger spaces between words, and a full stop at the end.
Children have free access NUMBOTS to support their maths at home. Passwords have been stuck inside children’s reading records. Contact your class teacher on ClassDojo for a username and password if you have misplaced them.
