Riverside Primary Academy | Learning At Home

Learning At Home

We know that parents/carers are conscious of the time being missed from school during the enforced closure.  To support parents/carers we have created  a list of some useful websites so that children can practise and rehearse aspects of learning previously taught.

 

Clearly other curriculum areas are equally important, and you may decide to do some drawing, colouring in, painting, cooking and exercise too. Taking time to read together and play board games could also be a way of alleviating boredom and having fun as a family.

 

We want to ensure that our children’s learning is supported during this period of lockdown.  We will communicate with parents and carers through the school website, Facebook (please follow our page!) and the text messaging service. If you are having any difficulties or need support with this, get in touch with us as soon as possible. Please also let us know if your child will not be able to access any learning online.

 

Your child should already have their various login details for Purple Mash, Timestable Rockstars ,Oxford Reading Buddy and Accelerated Reader accounts and these will be the main platforms for home learning.

 

Our staff are working very hard at home to regularly update our Facebook page with various work tasks and loads of other great fun things to do, so it is advisable that you follow our page for daily updates.

 

Please know that all of our staff are committed to making sure that learning continues, and children have interesting, fun tasks to keep them engaged and happy. On behalf of the staff and governors, I would like to say how much we appreciate your help and understanding at this challenging time. We all need to rally round and support each other through this difficult time.
