Home Learning

This page is dedicated to supporting learning at home. Throughout the week we send out work through Class Dojo so it’s really important to make sure you are using this. Every day there is also new learning on Purple Mash too https://www.purplemash.com/sch/parklandsch66. Through our Twitter @ParklandsCP we send out lots of ideas too.

Parents, don’t get stressed about home learning. We’re all in new territory and need to find a way to make it work together. Equally we’re all different and what works in one house won’t work in the next.

Need to get in touch? Click here.

Please encourage your child to read every day. This is one of the most important things they can do. An activity sheet for pupils to complete when reading is on this page. For free online books go to https://stories.audible.com/discovery  or  https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/

Practice phonics by using the Read Write Inc website https://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/find-out-more/parents/

Pupils in Key Stage 2 are expected to complete TT Rock Stars every day. Three sessions of 10 minutes will really help. All pupils will benefit from practicing Maths on ‘Hit the Button’ https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

We’ve set out our aims for home learning at Parklands Community Primary School:

  1. Accessible: We’re sending out all different kinds of work which can be accessed in all different ways. Due to the nature of the challenge we need to do this remotely but the majority of our work can be done off-screen. If you can’t get access something or need a hand, just contact us.
  2. Independent: Most of the work we send out will be revisiting work children have covered in class. Teachers will send out ideas to motivate the children such as creating battles on TT Rock Stars or fun ways to share learning.
  3. Prioritising: Our focus is on the 3 Rs – Reading, Writing & Arithmetic. Try to do a bit of reading and Maths every day and most days a bit of writing.
  4. Whole Child: We’re sending out lots of different ways to help your children understand the world they live in. We’re also sending ideas for across the subjects as well as for well-being.
