Home Learning 2020-2021
As this academic year progresses, school will experience times when some year groups or individuals are isolating at home because of COVID. We have put together a remote learning plan, in conjunction with our colleagues at Much Woolton Catholic Primary school, to support our families and children in this situation. This plan can be downloaded here.
When bubbles of children go into isolation, their class teachers do likewise and will begin working from home to support children. In our school children will either use Microsoft Teams platform or be provided with learning packs. Children can expect to be learning for between three and four hours each day.
Please find listed below some free online educational resources that you may wish to explore at home with your child/children.
There are also resources, published by the government and School Improvement Liverpool here.
You can also download here contact numbers for support teams if your child has special needs, ASD, speech and language needs or is struggling emotionally and you want further guidance on how to support them at home.
The following sites will also support further home learning:
This site is old and no longer updated and yet there’s so much still available, from language learning to BBC Bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.
