Home learning

Here is another link to a pack (Covid time capsule) that a parent sent to me - she said her child was really enjoying filling it in! 



This is a new link from 'sing up'.  It is totally free and will help you to continue singing whilst at home! 

Colchester Museums have also got some ideas on things you can do at home.

Please click KS1  KS2 for some ideas on what to do if the school is closed due to COVID 19.  Please also see class pages, spelling lists and Home Learning ideas below.

We have received some useful information from the Lewisham Outreach Inclusion Support Team.  Have a look at the timetable - also a child friendly version of how to explain Covid 19 . Some mindfulness techniques and finally a note on wellbeing.  

We have received a letter from The Country Trust with links to a live webcam at Romshed Farm looking at the lambing shed

At Baring we believe that the majority of home learning should be reading daily at home with support and encouragement from an adult.

Baring Home Learning Sacks have been developed to include cross curricular activity packs for Nursery, Reception and Year 1.

From Year 3 onwards children will be expected to practice a particular table/part of a table each week. Teachers in Key Stage 2 (years 3-6) may also send home spellings for the children to learn, plus other tasks to support learning.

Parents will be given information about home learning tasks which will support the curriculum and children’s learning will be via letters home and informal meeting and also through Family Learning activities, Open Evenings and Curriculum Workshops.

Government Advice is that children should spend the following amount of time doing home learning:

Years 1 and 2: 1 hour per week (reading and home-pack or spelling)

Years 3 and 4: 1.5 hours per week (reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation, times tables and occasionally some topic related work)

Years 5 and 6: 30 minutes per day/ 2.5hours per week (reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation, times tables and topic work)
