KS2 Home Learning Support
We use a range of platforms to support children both in school and with their home learning. This page is aimed at helping you navigate these platforms as well as supporting you to help your child with their learning.
If there are any problems with home learning or your child is missing log ins, please email or contact your child's class teacher.
In the classroom, we are using Seesaw as a way of the children documenting and recording their learning.
At home, Seesaw is a platform that can be accessed on laptops, tablets and phones. The children will bring home a QR code to access the Seesaw app, or website (please use either Google Chrome or Edge as your browser). At home, the children will be able to see their own journal page and any activities that have been added for them.
At home and in school, all uploads have to be approved by the class teacher before they appear on the journal page.
The Seesaw family app allows parents to receive notifications for more than one child and view the journal page for all of their children in one place. It allows parents a view of what their child is working on in the classroom, they can comment on student work and view announcements. It doesn't allow for parents to respond to activities, this has to be done on the Seesaw class app.
If you are interested in using the Seesaw family app, please let your child's class teacher know.
Accessed through www.mymaths.co.uk, your child will be set one or two weekly tasks. These maybe revision, linked to that week's learning or prior learning ready for looking at it in the classroom later that term.
While the teachers set the tasks, the strategies of how mymaths looks at the learning may differ slightly than how it is covered in the classroom - we would ask that the children have a go at the learning and let their teacher know if they are having difficulty.
The children will need both a whole school log in, and then an individual log in.
Timestable RockStars and Numbots
These are not set as home learning, instead they are a website that the children have access to and, occasionally, we will run class, phase or school competitions.
TTRS focussing on the children's timestables and linked division facts, whereas Numbots practises number bonds and using them in different contexts.
The practise takes the form of a number of different games, where the children can earn coins which can be exchanged for changes in costume for their avatar.
Spelling shed is an addition or alternative to the children writing their spelling words out in sentences.
It has a a game-like format that helps builds your child’s confidence in spelling, your child's teacher may set that week's words as the ones that they focus on.
This year we have replaced our traditional paper reading diary with an online version using Go Read. This can be accessed through your internet browser.
With their individual login, children can record their learning both at home and in school.
Supporting Your Child
To support your child with their learning at home, the support on WhiteRose (for maths) and BBC Bitesize (all areas of the curriculum) may help to explain the methods and strategies that are taught in school.
Please speak to your child's class teacher if you or your child is finding the home learning difficult.
