Latest updated information on YATTON SCHOOLS HOME LEARNING from Monday 23rd March
Teacher email : We really encourage you and your children to be in touch with the teachers – they are here to answer any of your queries about the home learning and would love to hear all about what you are getting up to at home while you’re not in school.
This page will have home learning opportunities for you to access and will be updated regularly. Some home learning for Reception (EYFS) children will also be sent out via Tapestry.
We hope you are finding the learning packs we are putting online useful; however, we would like to emphasise that there is no expectation that the children have to complete all of the learning activities we are putting on the website. The resources are there for you to choose and use as you wish – we would hope that you find time to have fun with your children, to exercise and, most important of all – look after each other and stay safe and well.
The learning provided on this page will be a selection of the core learning from class lessons where appropriate (some literacy, for example, is not transferable as the key text may not be readily available at home). We will try to provide learning that can be done online and not – as we are aware that some parents will also need to be working from home online. Books for the children to record their learning in whilst they are at home are being provided to children.
In addition, we have created a list of additional websites you might choose to access – see the ‘Other resources’ section below. This includes information on how you can access ‘Twinkl’ materials free of charge at this time.
Coronavirus Parents, we have been sent this link to an e-book on Covid-19 which you might find useful if you are looking for a way to talk with your child about the virus and what is happening: What’s Going On – explaining Covid-19 to younger children.*NEW*Here is a child-friendly video guide that you may choose to share: Konnie Huq’s Guide to CoronaVirus As always, it’s best for you to check it out first before showing your child.

Bible Stories: Many children have been enjoying having the opportunity to open their Bibles each week and read a Bible story.While they won’t have access to their Children’s Bibles, if they wanted to read a version of the stories they would have been reading in school, please click here to share the links with them if you wish.
Prayers: The Church of England has produced some child-friendly prayers which you may choose to share with your child at this time – click here

Please note that, in line with other primary schools in the Lighthouse Partnership, we are not sending out new learning tasks for the children over the Easter holiday period. We will have new home learning ready for the week beginning Monday 20th April. We wish you all a very happy, safe and healthy Easter.
Here are some fun things you may wish to try over Easter as a family:

We are currently trying our best to provide plans and activities that are most suited to your children’s year group and stages of development. There are many more general resources available online that you may wish to access. Please click on the link below for a list of websites and apps that you may choose to explore. We anticipate that this list will be updated regularly as we become aware of new home learning resources.
Thank you so much to Pace Print who have been producing the home learning packs for those families who do not have access to the online resources and generously providing all the paper free of charge.
