We are looking forward to welcoming all of our children back to school on Monday 8th March.  Please check our newsletter page for up to date information.  Thank you.   

Home Learning Gateway (January 2021 - )

 

Home Learning Information for Parents -Leaflet 

Make sure you read the class teacher's weekly Timetable document first: it will explain the resource packs in more detail, as well as providing links to relevant websites. 

To help us keep this gateway manageable, activity documents have been compressed into ZIP files, usually one for English, Maths and Other/Project work. Depending on the device you use to access them, this may require you to take a couple of extra steps to unzip them (using a suitable app) so that you can view the original documents. You can check out Miss Grubb's guide to accessing Zipped documents on an iPad here.

Important: We'd also like to remind families that, as a school community, we've worked hard over the years to build our pupils' Online Safety skills and understanding. In this new context, with schools actively encouraging increased access to the internet at home, we'd respectfully ask that you regularly check your internet security settings, controls and permissions across all devices and platforms. ParentzoneInternet Matters and the UK Safer Internet Centre provide useful resources. 

Use of the school's Welearn365 online learning platform to access resources, as directed by class teachers, is still subject to the school's Acceptable Use Agreement and Online Safety policy. See here for further details.

 Children have unique sign-in details and QR codes on a sticker in their Home School Communication Books. You can read more about our choice of SeeSaw in our Parents Guide and explore in more detail here

 Accelerated Reader (AR)

 A message from Mrs Warrington:

 During these unprecedented times we at Eastlands are going to do our very best to ensure our children keep on learning until the time we all return to the classroom.

One important feature at Eastlands is the Accelerated Reader programme. Most classes have children coming home with reading books during the school closure period. By visiting the AR website children can continue to quiz after they have finished reading each book. We encourage you to keep to this reading-quizzing routine.

After their books are finished and quizzed on, if possible, could you help your child to pick a book (from home, if local libraries are shut) that best matches their ZPD range eg: 3.2 or 1.8. You can use AR Bookfinder UK: (this is only available during a lockdown)  this site will search whether books you have at home are on the AR system (there are over 200,000) and then find its AR level.

I would suggest to go no more than 0.5 either side of their current level.

For example:

If your child is 3.8 then they can read between 3.3 and 4.3. I would prefer children not to read too many below their level as this does not help them to make progress but I understand you may have a limited supply of books at your disposal in some cases. They can record their scores in the Home School Communication Books if they want to. I am available via email (warrington.s@welearn365.com) for any queries regarding AR and I will be checking on all classes over the course of the closure.
