Home Learning

We have created this page to support home learning during the current Covid-19 outbreak.

UPDATED JANUARY 2021 - Charsfield School Offer for Home Learning

During this current period of home learning the school is using Google Classrooms to support your child's learning at home. On your child's page (they should have their username and password details) your teacher will post a suggested timetable to follow and daily lessons for your child to complete. Every day teachers will meet with your child via the Google Meet link at the top of the screen. During these sessions your child might find it useful to have a piece of paper and pen or pencil. These sessions will be interactive lessons. 

In KS1 pupils will have short live lessons (15 - 20 minutes and sometimes twice daily) from their teacher during the morning and KS2 pupils will have a longer live lesson each day (between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on what we are learning). We have scheduled these live lessons so they don't over-lap for siblings in different classes who may be sharing devices. There is always the option to speak to your teacher about any of the work you are doing at the live lessons. 

As well as live face-to-face teaching from class teachers, the school will use pre-recorded lessons from websites such as White Rose Maths and Oak National Academy.  There will be a weekly face-to-face Zoom PE lesson from Mr Hender on a Thursday afternoon.  Resources to support pupils in their lessons may take the form of PowerPoint presentations, video clips and other resources from educational websites such as mymaths, BBC Bitesize/BBC Teach and Purple Mash.  

All pupils will be set Maths, Literacy and Science/Foundation subjects daily. This will equate to 3 hours learning for KS 1 and 4 hours learning for KS 2. 

On a Monday morning all of our pupils are invited to join our celebration assembly via Zoom. We ask that parents share good deeds that any pupil may have done during the week (via email) and Mrs Reeve will mention this in the assembly. So far we have been able to share lots of good work and acts of kindness our pupils have shown during this period of home learning. 

On a Wednesday afternoon, again via Zoom, the whole school is invited to join in with Share a Biscuit, Share a Story. This is where the children have a chance to relax under a blanket with a biscuit and listen to a member of staff share a story. Afterwards there is a fun activity to complete and to share with our friends. 

It has been lovely to see so many of you being creative with the sessions that your teacher has given you. Well done! You are ALL doing brilliantly in this challenging time.
