To all of our children and their families, we understand that the current situation with COVID-19 can be a cause for worry and anxiety. Taking care of our mental health should be one of our main priorities during this time. If you or any of your young people are struggling please click on this resource from Penumbra – ‘Young People’s resource Responding To Change’
During the time of school closure, in order to compliment the learning that is assigned to pupils every week, our staff have also created learning grids for Literacy and Numeracy at Early, First and Second Level. These are available below, along with links to our commonly used websites used to support learning at home.
Children have all been given their usernames and passwords for these sites but please contact the school if you need a reminder. These details will allow children to access:
Glow allows learners to work in a variety of ways, from collaborating with peers to working individually at their own pace. Glow services are free to all students with a Glow login and can be accessed at anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
Bug Club is a whole-school reading programme that helps transform children into lifelong readers. Now with added Grammar and Spelling, and Plays by Julia Donaldson, the Bug Club family has everything you need to help children catch the reading bug. Teachers can allocate reading, spelling and grammar materials to pupils directly.
EducationCity provides flexible learning resources to meet the experiences and outcomes in Literacy & English, Numeracy & Mathematics, and Sciences. Teachers can allocate different resources and also open a wide variety of resources for children to access.
Sumdog can be used for numeracy. It is a game based learning platform. While children choose what they play, adaptive learning engines guide pupil learning. Sumdog gets to know individual strengths and weaknesses and ensures pupils always work on the right skill.
