Home Learning Resources
We have constructed this section to support families and help Welford's children continue their learning at home. It includes everyday activities for all children to do, home learning overviews for each year group (in the case of any year group closures) and useful web links to support different areas of the curriculum.
September 2020 onwards:
In the event of a year group bubble closing or a Tier 4 local lockdown, children in the year groups affected will be given an online weekly timetable (see example below) on their Home Learning year group pages, so that it is clear what daily learning children can do, while at home, in each subject. The timetables, which will be posted each Monday, will contain direct links to the relevant web pages so you can access children's daily lessons directly from their relevant year group page.
Alternatively, if it is difficult for your children to access the internet for an extended period each day, paper packs will be available for each year group from the school office or can be posted out on request (from Monday afternoons onward).
DAILY ONLINE LESSONS
At both of these sites you will find a wide range of engaging lessons from across the curriculum including Science, History, Geography and Art (Note: the foundation topics in each year group may be different from those we teach at Welford)
Other recommended daily lessons, such as those run by White Rose and iSee Maths, can be accessed via the weblinks below.
