Home Learning Gateway (Archive May - July 2020)

 

 

To help keep the layout of this page a little more manageable, we've moved resources from the first six school weeks of Lockdown to an archive. We appreciate that, even when edited, the layout can be difficult to navigate on smartphones and tablets, but we are actively pursuing a solution with our website provider.

 

During school closure, this page is the central hub for home learning resources.  Clicking on each class icon below will jump to the relevant section on this page. Please be aware that the gateway is a work in progress and is constantly being updated.

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.

 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

To help support teachers, students and parents to 'Keep the UK and Ireland reading' during Lockdown, Renaissance Learning has been offering access to thousands of enhanced digital books through myON and articles from myON News. That was all set to stop at the end of this term, but...

I have received some great news: we have been granted free access to MyOn to all pupils during the summer holidays. When the children return to school they will be reassessed and be back on to the Accelerated Reader programme.

How to login:

Go to myon.co.uk and enter your login information, as follows:

School Name: Eastlands Primary School
(type the first few letters of your school and select from the drop-down menu)
Your Username and Password will be sent to parents by text message.

Click on the Sign In button, select a book, and start reading!

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.
