Welcome to our remote learning programme.
Our remote learning offer is accessed via two platforms, Tapestry for children in Class 1 (EYFS and Year 1), and Google Classroom for children in Class 2,3 and 4 (Year 1 - 6).
Guides for how to use these platforms can be found by watching the videos below. Pupils in Class 2, 3 and 4 use Google Classroom to access their weekly maths homework.

Please make sure whichever device your child is on; internet safety is key. Do not leave your child unattended on the internet for long periods and aim to engage with the activities that they are doing. Please visit the Aspire eSafety page at the link below for further guidance.

Suggested Home Learning Timetables/Schedules
As we enter the spring term 2021, schools are closed to the majority of pupils due to a National Lockdown.
Nobody expects primary pupils, at home, to be focussed on home learning from 9am until 3pm, following the typical school day routine. However, remote learning is expected to be completed on a daily basis.
The Department for Education (DfE) has stated that schools must provide a minimum:
- Three hours of home learning a day for children in KS1 (less for the youngest children)
- Four hours a day for children in KS2.
As a parent, you will know the best way to manage this expectation, whilst also considering your own and the rest of your families’ individual circumstances.
Please find below a suggested home learning time schedule for each individual year group.
Helpful pointers for home educating
Motivation is key and regular sessions each day will help with this. If your child feels saturated, try a different task. Reward the effort made with a star (stuck or hand-drawn) at the end of the work.
Create a daily timetable, design it with your children. Factor in fun times for all. Learning time needs to have a different feel to playtime.
Read the task in advance of your child so you have any idea of what they need to do. If you have several children can the older children support the younger ones? Can you all do the same activity at times (art, music, science?), to avoid your attention being pulled in many ways.
Make sure there is a balance to the day, ensuring plenty of exercise. Have a mixture of handwritten and online tasks.
If your child is struggling, reassure them. We often use the phrase, “You haven’t got it yet but one day you will”.
And BREATHE! You've totally got this...
