Home learning resources for children
During the current National crisis, the children of almost all Rokesly families will be expected to stay away from school for a period of isolation. The DfE guidance about supporting your child’s learning can be found here:
The Department for Education (DfE) has worked with the BBC and other partners to provide advice and support directly to parents, including online resources they can access for their children at home. These newly published resources can be found here:
School staff have been busy working to provide some educational materials for Rokesly children to use at home. These include KS1 and Reception work books, along with your log-in to Purple Mash resources and Abacus for KS1.
Activities have been assigned to all Year 1 and Year 2 classes. Parents/children will need to click on the ‘2Dos‘ tab to access the activities. When you have completed a task, your class teacher will be sent a notification.
These online resources are the ones we use in class, and should help you to support your child’s learning during isolation.
It is important for you and your child to have reasonable expectations about the kind of learning activities you will be able to do at home together. This handy factsheet may be useful:
To help you with home learning activities during the crisis, we have provided useful and age-appropriate links to online learning resources, videos and games for you to use with your child. Please also check your class page for links to materials.
