Home learning for school closure Spring 2020


Friday 22nd May 2020


Hello Oak,


I did enjoy chatting to you last week. It was great to hear about some of the things you are doing at home.  Between us, we have some very talented bakers, scientists, artists, technicians, cyclists, writers, swimmers, mathematicians….The list of our skills could go on for ever!


It has been a very busy week in school, as we have been redesigning classrooms and the outside area in preparation for some children returning to school. Next week, you can have a week off from home learning (for half term) while we get ourselves organised for Term 6! 


I miss you all but do enjoy hearing about what you are doing.  Even though there is no new home learning for half term, you can still email a photo. showing what you are doing if you would like to.  I choose a selection to put on the website. If you haven't done so already, go and take a look at what your friends have been up to!  

Have a fun week!

Take care and stay safe 

Mrs Smith

02.04.20 Update 

Parents are welcome to email questions or share photos of learning via the class email

accounts at anytime.  (classoak@flaxbourton.n-somerset.sch.uk)

Staff will aim to respond within 48 hours on weekdays, however this may be variable if staff or their family members are unwell.



I hope you are all well and adjusting to learning from home.  I am missing the children!  


To enable me to 'check in' with Oak Class, I am asking parents to send one or two photos of home learning to the class account and then I can email back with some feedback.  I would also like to put some photos of examples of learning on the website.  If you send me a photo/short video, I will assume you are giving consent for me to put it on our school website.


I hope that this will help both children and parents. 


  • For the children it provides a real audience and recognition of the creativity and effort they are putting into their learning.
  • For parents, this may help motivate a child, who is reluctant to persevere with their learning.


 Some tasks on the weekly plan will naturally make an eye-catching photo. (It would be great to see some more of the alien plants from week 1.) However, perhaps the most important tasks are activities like the maths flashbacks and reading comprehension tasks.  It would be good to see some more photos of these.  Remember, good learning will not necessarily mean a child got everything correct on the first attempt.  The best learning would probably be a photo showing something a child was not sure about, but after a second attempt or some adult help was then able to complete.


 Many thanks for your continued support as we all try to get to grips with home learning!

Mrs Smith
