Welcome to the Goldfinch Class Webpage! Please look at the Goldfinch Class Home Learning Information document for a brief overview of what we’re learning about in class this half-term and how you can join in from home. There is also a useful rough timetable in this section. Make sure you set aside some time each day to keep on top of your learning.
As a guide, daily work will be posted on Google Classroom each day at 9am. This will contain one or two English and maths activities of varying types. Some of these are to be done in your child’s CGP book and some will need to be answered in their Home Learning exercise book. Encourage your child to make a start on this work each morning, as an answer sheet will be uploaded each day at 2.30pm so your child can self-mark before the next day. (Some CGP books also have the answers in the back.) For those children who were not in school during the last week, you should also find the pages attached to the bottom of the Google Classroom assignment.
From time to time there will be a piece of work set on Google classroom that needs to be handed in via Google classroom as well. These are clearly marked with ‘Hand in via GC’.
In addition to this ‘set’ work, please make sure your child does daily reading and spelling practice, as well as regular times tables practice. It would be great if you could test your child on their spellings each week too (if this is difficult, there is a folder of MP3 tests available below which your child can play as pause in between each one whilst they write.)
Don’t forget to access school assemblies from the link on the class pages tab too.
The ‘afternoon’ work is very much down to you and your child to organise. The Class Home Learning Information document has lots of ideas and web-links, but hopefully you will have lots of other great ideas yourself. If you are able to get outside, do try to do some outside learning if the weather is good and don’t forget daily exercise. Keep checking the Powell Corderoy Facebook page for lots of other great ideas.
The other buttons provide links to a variety of other resources which parents can use with children at home. There are lots of further websites, online games and free printables to support your learning.
There are bound to be some technical issues with so much e-learning going on, but as a rule, please try to use Google chrome as a browser and most things should hopefully work. Sometimes you may find you have to download a document to your PC or laptop first and then re-open it for it to work. It just might need a bit of perseverance!
If you have any further questions, feel free to email Mr Leach at firstname.lastname@example.org. Take care.
