SUMMER 1 HOME LEARNING

Monday 20th April is the start of our Summer term and although it is very different to any other start of term we have had before, we all need to make sure that we are still enjoying our learning. I expect you to show effort and focus with your learning. I know many of you are doing a fantastic job with this as I have read superb emails from many of you! If you find it tricky to learn and focus at home sometimes, please read the BGJS HOME LEARNING- DAILY ROUTINE document for support

New weekly tasks will be put on learning platforms/ programmes, such as Purple Mash, SPAG.com and MyMaths by Sunday night each week. We want to help you keep a clear structure for your week. This means you can look at everything on a Monday morning and organise when you are going to complete tasks. Your teachers will be communicating with you as a class through messages on Purple Mash and they will continue to look at who is doing what each week. This clear structure will help us monitor and support you all with your learning.

Don’t forget Times Table Rockstars and Espresso as well!

From the comfort of your own home, your child/ children will explore the limits of outer space, the depths of the ocean and travel to the far-flung corners of our incredible world — collecting fun facts along the way!

Featuring spectacular video clips from Discovery channels like Animal Planet and Discovery Science, this summer adventure is intended to inspire curiosity.

The quiz is exclusive to subscribing schools (that's us) and links to awe-inspiring footage in our video zone.

You can still learn in other ways as well if you and your parents choose to of course.

In addition to our learning platforms, I will be adding more NEW great links and documents in our STAYING CONNECTED part of our website to support your learning.
