This page is for our children who are learning at home. This page contains all the resources that children learning at home will need throughout the week. For each day of the week, there is an English, Maths and Guided Reading lesson. 

You could also try some of our Topic Challenges at home in your topic time on your suggested timetable. Don't forget to also keep learning using Spelling Shed and Maths Shed throughout the week. 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me via email at l.duffner@barnburghprimary.com.

Thank you, Miss Duffner

A letter from Miss Duffner

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Due to the closure of our school for most children for this half term, I would like to take this opportunity to explain how I intend to continue teaching and supporting your child while they are at home. 

I have devised a timetable to zoom with children throughout each school day (please find attached). Each zoom call will be supported by another school adult. 

Our timetable will follow our normal school day structure, so your child should be familiar with this. On the timetable you will see where I intend to ‘zoom’ the class. Each zoom call will have a different subject focus. There will be a follow up task which the children will be able to access from our remote learning page or from their learning pack.

Every Friday there will be a learning and resources pack available for collection outside the school office. These will be in year group boxes. Please make sure you take the learning pack with your child’s name on it. Included in the resources pack will be stationery necessary to complete their learning. In the learning pack, will be worksheets and/or paper for children to complete tasks I set next week.

I would still love to see photos of children learning and would welcome these being emailed to me.

 If your child does not have access to any technology, please let me know so I can offer an alternative way to support your child. 

 If you feel your child is eligible to access learning in school due to a parent being a critical key worker, then please see the information on our website by clicking on to our IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND CARERS page which you will find under our COVID tab. Your child will access the same learning in school as they have access to remotely.

 Finally, please let me take this opportunity to reassure you that all the staff at Barnburgh Primary School are here to support you during this difficult time. Whilst we value the education of your child, their wellbeing will remain our priority. Therefore, please don’t let our expectations on home-learning create any stress or problems in your home. I will help address anything your child can’t or won’t do so please don’t persevere with anything that is causing distress.

 I would really like to make contact with your child every day. If, for whatever reason, your child is unable to join any of the zoom sessions on a particular day, I will call you in the afternoon to speak to your child. Please don’t worry if your child cannot attend all of the zoom sessions each day – we understand the pressures families are facing at the moment. Your child will learn from any experience you can offer them and I will support whatever you choose to do – just keep me informed via email

I look forward to seeing your children in our new virtual classroom. 

 

Kind regards,

Miss Duffner

Barnburgh Primary School
