Home Based Learning

We have prepared the following guide and resources to support parents and children who will be home learning during the current school closures. We suggest that as a minimum, children should be doing two hours of school work a day. To make this process as straight forward as possible for children, parents and teachers we have developed the Learning Projects resources which we will update weekly and these will fill much of the time. There are links to further ideas and free resources in the guide  as well as some other resources that have been prepared by your child's teacher. If at any time you feel you need more support with home learning, please do not hesitate to get in touch with school.

 

Over the coming weeks, we will be developing further ways to support parents and children with high quality, exciting and educational home learning, as well as ways for children to share their learning and interact with teachers and each other, we welcome your feedback.  

The following resources have been prepared specifically by your class teacher and are all linked to the things they would have been doing in class. They include worksheets that can be printed at home (contact school if you need things printing out) and links to useful websites and games that the children will be familiar with. These can be completed in addition to the Learning Projects.

All Wisewood children have access to the following online learning resources:

Staying Safe Online

 

Children use the internet regularly and may be involved in more online activity than their parents. Some children may have greater technical knowledge than their parents, but they may be unable to identify the risks of giving too much personal information online, and may be unable to spot scams as readily as adults. So take time to get involved with your children’s internet use and teach them about online safety which includes the following.

Staying Safe Online

 1)      Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.

2)      Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.  Once you’ve put  a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.

3)      Keep your privacy settings as high as possible

4)      Never give out your passwords

5)      Don’t befriend people you don’t know

6)      Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do

7)      Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

8)      Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

9)      Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

10)   If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
