Home Learning Gateway // Archive (March - May 2020)

We're aware that, as Lockdown progressed, our online learning resources grew...and grew... and our already unwieldy page layout became cluttered and difficult to navigate. Staff upload the resources on a laptop, but we know that navigating using smartphones and tablets is much less straightforward. We're actively working on a solution with our website provider.

In the interim, this page archives the first 6 weeks of Lockdown online learning resources, to free up some space on the current Home Learning Gateway.

Firstly, a reminder about the School's Acceptable Use Agreement, as signed by children and parents at the beginning of the school year, found in the Home School Communication Book.

 

These documents form part of the school's Online Safety Policy.

 

As the Warwickshire ICT Development Service's Guide to Welearn365 Online Safety makes clear, 

In a home learning context, it is therefore a parental responsibility to ensure that these and other tools are used appropriately and, to this end, that children are adequately supervised and supported by an adult during such use.

Key Stage 2 Design Technology project

All five KS2 classes will be given a printed Design Technology project booklet. The overview document is 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 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.

 

 

Accessing books online: the myON library

I'm excited to post this update: to help support teachers, students and parents to 'Keep the UK and Ireland reading', Renaissance Learning is offering access to thousands of enhanced digital books through myON and articles from myON News. Here's my guide to getting started:

myON Guide [Word]   myON Guide [PDF]

 

Please note: Although initially we hoped that books accessed through myON could then be quizzed on by children, we've since discovered that our current subscription level does not allow this. We will keep you posted if this situation changes. In the meantime, we've noticed that some books available through myON can be quizzed on. It would be a case of finding a book on myON and then copying and pasting the title into AR Bookfind to see if it's quizzable. It's far from ideal, but it might work for some books.
