Home learning for school closure Spring 2020

31.03.20 Update There will not be any Home Learning set during the Easter holidays. 

The next Oak Home Learning plan will be available on Friday 17th April.

Happy Easter to everyone - stay safe! Mrs Smith


26.3.20 UPDATE Feedback for Home Learning

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, from 27th March (2nd weekly plan) I am going to ask parents to send one or two photos of home learning to the class account each Wednesday.  Then, I can email back with some feedback: either on Wednesday or Thursday.   I would also like to put some photos of examples of learning on the website.  If you send me a photo, 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 weekly deadline may help focus 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 great 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!
