Home Learning

 

HOME LEARNING - VIA GOOGLE CLASSROOM

If you are required to self isolate you will be able to use your school logon from day one to access curriculum materials. When you log on, you should register your attendance and your teacher will be available to chat with you during the day. Our remote learning procedure is here - or can be found at the bottom of this page. The expectation is that you will complete a minimum of three hours of lessons per day, during self isolation. We will provide the work. (This is in line with the national guidance for English primary schools.)

If you're not sure about logging on, don't worry - simply give us a call on 0151 329 3524 or email admin@smota.co.uk. We will remind you of your access codes.

HOME LEARNING -  AT YOUR OWN PACE

In addition to your regular work with your teacher, these websites will be really exciting and useful for home learning. They bridge curriculum areas and are suitable to embed learning already done in school, as well as providing support for learning new concepts. 

There is a possibility that there will be advertising on some of these sites, so please parents, have a look at them first, with your child if you wish, and decide which ones suit you best. Partnership between parent and child in home learning is essential, so that you can support your child to find a level that both suits and challenges them. And of course, there are lots of opportunities for pupils to have independent learning time on these sites.

But most of all, enjoy your online learning!
