Home Learning

As you know, shools are closed for the majority of children from Monday 23rd March 2020 due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We are committed to our vision of growing minds for learning, crafting skills for life and so we are working hard to support pupils’ learning from afar during this period. 

 In addition to the paper home learning pack we sent home, we will also update this page by 8am on Monday each week. The updates will be in the form of a suggested weekly plan for learning, put together by your child’s class teacher. There are also more general learning links underneath. We know this in no way matches a day at school, but we hope it helps pupils to keep up the fabulous learning they have already done this year.

Happy Easter!

This week the teachers have recorded Easter messages for their class. We hope you enjoy them!

Home Learning Links for Parents 

 

We strongly recommend that you commit to a sense of routine during these closure days and enable your child to complete the learning activities given; we all benefit from routine and structure and this can be particularly beneficial during unusual and concerning times such as these. We acknowledge that many parents will be working at home and the learning activities are designed to fit in with your own busy schedules.

A day with your child may look like this:

During the closure we will be communicating regularly with you. If you have not started using Parent Mail, now is the time to do so as this is going to be our main method of communication. We will use Facebook as a support for parents and carers, adding home learning tips and tricks. We will have access to emails during the closure, so please do email any enquiries in. We will do our best to answer these promptly during the usual school opening hours.

 

Please do contact the school office should you have any questions or concerns. Urgent enquires can be made by phone (t: 01494 523218), but we ask that less urgent enquiries are submitted via email at office@ashhillprimary.co.uk. We love to hear from pupils too, so encourage them to write a message you can email to us.
