Home learning resources for children

During the current National crisis, children identified as close contacts of children and adults who have tested positive for Covid-19 will be expected to stay away from school for a period of isolation.

When this happens, the school will provide the children with access to Remote learning resources as outlined in our contingency plan here

 During isolationour child’s teacher will send work and instructions by email every day. Please make sure we have your correct contact details including email addresses. 

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:

 How To Support Home Learning Parent Factsheet – The Key

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.

Messages and tasks from class teachers

During this period of National closure of schools, we thought it would be good time to stay in touch, check on how you are doing and share some of our news with you. Please see below for messages from your class teachers

Remember that its important to strike a balance between time spent online on a computer, tablet or a mobile phone and participating in other activities. So think about some other things you could be doing throughout the day. These might include:

  • reading a book
  • playing a game
  • solving a puzzle
  • completing a jigsaw
  • cooking
  • drawing, colouring, painting or weaving
  • resting
