Home Learning AT Green Dragon

Research shows that homelearning can boost a child’s progress by up to two months over the course of a year. Wowzer! 

  • Types of Tasks set

    Reading: Children from Year 1 to Year 6 are expected to read with their families for between 10 and 20 minutes every day. This could be a book, , a comic, online article, etc. 

    Spelling: Every child in Year 3 – 6 has a SPaG book which is to be completed weekly. They will be practising the key knowledge or skills required during their daily English lessons in preparation for their home learning tasks. Children are also expected to learn the words from the statutory word list. 

    Mathletics: Every child has a username and password for the Mathletics website. Class teachers will allocate three tasks per week for each child to complete. This will either be linked to current class learning, or the child’s personal targets. Usernames and passwords can be requested from the class teacher if they are lost / forgotten.

    Project Home Learning Tasks: Children from Years 1 to 6 will be given either a knowledge, skills or understanding task connected to a current project or unit of learning in the class. They will often be creative tasks which can be undertaken over a holiday or a couple of weeks within the term. Look for the dates in this leaflet.

Online Safety at Home

Whilst your child/ren are undertaking 'Home Learning', it is vitally important that they are staying safe online. Below you will find advice for both children and parents/carers to ensure that we can all stay safe online at this time.

  • Advice for Children

    As we have discussed in school, it is important that you continue to be safe online. When you are working from home, make sure your parents/carers are aware of what sites you are on and what you are doing online. If there is anything that you see online that is not appropriate and makes you worried or scared make sure you tell and show an adult immediately. Your parents have also got access to our email address so they can contact us to let us know too.

    Below there are also some links to sites which you can go to if you want to report something inappropriate online:

  • Advice for Parents/Carers

    At this time, it is especially important for parents and carers to be aware of what your child/ren are being asked to do online. This includes knowledge of the sites they will be asked to access and who they will be interacting with online.

    You may choose to supplement the school's online offer with support from online companies and in some cases individual tutors. It is very important that you are securing online support from a reputable organisation/individual who can provide evidence that they are safe and can be trusted to have access to children.
