Home School Learning

At Garlinge Primary School and Nursery the welfare of our children and families, both inside and outside of school, is paramount.

On the this tab, you will find whole school resources as well as year group specific resources to assist you and your child.

We would recommend that your home learning routine is similar to that of a normal school day in order for your child to be as settled as possible and continue to make progress.

A suggested timetable is as follows:

Before 09:00 – Your usual morning routine of washing, dressing and having breakfast
09:00 – Discuss with your family the plan for the day and what your child would like to achieve 
09:20 – Maths games and activities
10:15 – Physical Activity (suggested PE ideas in whole school resources section)
11:00 – English Activity
12:00 – Make lunch together
12:45 – Physical Activity (suggested PE ideas in whole school resources section)
13:00 –­ Quiet time reading and sharing books 
13:30 – Choose from Topic, Science, Art & DT, French, RE, Music and Computing activities

In order to support your child with their home learning, we will be providing exercise books for them to use to record their learning if they so wish.  If you have difficulty accessing the internet, please contact the office.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDANCE

We want every adult and child who takes part in PE at home to enjoy doing it. Just as importantly, we want you to be safe from injury. #ThisIsPE partners, led by the Association for Physical Education, have put together a few health and safety tips: 

  • Make sure that there is enough space around you (including overhead) for the activity you are doing
  • If you can, do ball activities outside. If this is not in a garden, be sure to follow social distancing guidelines by staying two metres away from anyone not from your household.
  • Make sure the surface is even and not slippy underfoot 
  • Make sure any equipment used is not too heavy or too large for children
  • Ask children to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the activity
  • Tie back long hair
  • Remove any jewellery
  • Give your child plenty of opportunity to have breaks during the longer activities, to rest and drink water to stay hydrated.
  • Do not work children to exhaustion. Let children complete what they can and want to
  • If you are practising a skill, focus on good technique rather than the amount they can do
