We have prepared the following guide and resources to support parents and children who will be home learning during the current school closures. 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. Class teachers will be making a daily post on their private class Facebook page to talk through one or two of the activities. If you're not already a member it'd be great if you could sign up.
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. Exercise books are available for collection to record your child's activities from our staff at Hillsborough Primary School. If you would like a printed copy of any of the resources please let the school office know and we'll get one to you as soon as possible.
We are staying in touch with parents through our whole school Facebook page as well as our private class pages. We will update these regularly with other learning resources and will be available to answer any queries Monday to Friday. If you do not have and would like access to the private Facebook groups, please provide your email below and a message asking for access and we will send you an invite. If you do not use Facebook, if you provide your email address we can pass this on to your child's teacher and they can contact you directly. You can also use this form for any other query regarding home learning and we will pass it on to the relevant person. Please provide your child's name and year group in your message. Thanks.
All Wisewood children have access to the following online learning resources:
Use your TTRockstars logins for both. If you haven't got your login, please contact the school.
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.
