Moorlands Primary School

Autumn Term Home Learning Hub

Welcome to our Autumn Term Home Learning Hub

Here you will find information for Home Learning should your child need to self-isolate or if your child's bubble closes.

Bubble Closure 

This means your child's class has closed due to a positive case of Covid within the class. In this case, you will need to check your child's school email for details of daily online learning. If you do not have a device, such as a laptop or tablet for your child to use during this time, please contact school as soon as possible. 

Your child can expect:

  • a daily timetable with a combination of live and pre-recorded lessons, activities and independent learning linked to the current curriculum and learning in school.
  • feedback for activities submitted from staff.
  • daily interaction and contact from staff in school, during the school week.

We use the online learning platform, Seesaw . Your child will receive a letter with login details. Please contact your child's teacher if you have not received this. Here is a Seesaw Quick Start Guide for you and your child to watch. All work will be uploaded to Seesaw, with a daily calendar of activities, including links to Live and Pre-recorded lessons and follow-up activities.  

Live lessons will take place via Microsoft Teams. Your child can access this using their school email address. Here is a Teams Quick Start Guide to accessing and joining live lessons. We recognise that everybody's situation is different and your child may be unable to watch the lessons live, therefore these will be recorded for your child to access later. 

Self-isolation

If your child needs to self-isolate and their class remains in school, your class teacher will provide an Isolation Pack. This will be accessed via Seesaw. Your teacher will provide daily activities and will provide feedback on these activities via Seesaw. Activities will be linked to the current half terms learning. Check above for the Quick Start Guide to Seesaw. 

Further support for remote learning:

We still recommend the websites below to compliment learning in times of isolation or class closure.  

We recommend to continue listening to your child read for 20 minutes per day. Additional books have been sent home. However, you can also access free e-books linked to reading age and phonics, as well as top tips, games and activities here:

Or https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/bookfinder/ (added 19.4.20)

or https://www.lovereading4kids.co.uk/ (added 19.4.20)

You can log in through the teacher portal with the following details:
username: parents@harpercollins.co.uk
password: Parents20! 

We also recommend continuing to regularly access ttrockstars.com to consolidate timestables. 

Click here for steps to support each other during self-isolation and check out our Well-Being Section for advice on self-care for adults and young people during this period with evidence based-resources as well as a Mental Health Emergency phone number. We have also up-dated the Anxiety (including support for adults) and Sleep sections. 

With increased use of online devices here is a Family Agreement template and some accompanying online safety videos including Smartie the Penguin aimed at 3-7 year olds and Captain Kara aimed at Key Stage 2. 

Here you will find a list of activities to suit any age:
