Introduction

Welcome to our Home Learning Programme Page

First of all, we hope that you are well and staying safe - that is our first priority. These are challenging times for us all and we look forward to the return of normality once this is all over.  
 
We know that home learning can feel very overwhelming and understand that it will look different in different households. Setting daily routines will help. Although children may resist at first, once they are in place it will make home learning much easier!
 
Here you will find details of our remote learning programme. As well as an outline of what to expect from the school, it also provides guidance on how much work your child should do each day and gives some suggestions on how you may timetable this. This does however, need to fit in with family life and we emphasise to parents that this can be adapted and used to suit their own individual circumstances.
 
If you are experiencing difficulties accessing your child's Home Learning Page please contact infantsecretary@budeprimary.org and we will arrange for the class teacher to get in contact with you.

All pupils in the Early Years can communicate with their Class Teacher, access their learning and upload any work covered using Tapestry.

All pupils in Year 1 and 2 have an individual log in to the Google Classroom platform where each class group will set home learning tasks and you can upload completed work and communicate directly with the Class Teacher.

Please remember that whichever devices your children use to access their home learning that internet safety remains key.
 
You can access the Aspire e-safety page using the link below for further information on how you can help keep your child safe online.

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...
