Home learning in March 2020

For up to date remote learning resources for January 2021, please see Remote Learning under the Key Information pencil or click the link below to take you to the page direct.

https://www.bsp.leeds.sch.uk/remote-learning/

It is important that your child(ren) continue(s) to learn during their time away from school. This page is designed to signpost you to a range of resources that will help with this. The resources include online activities and some that can be downloaded.

Please also refer to your child's year group page and the 'home learning' tab you will see there.

 

Home learning will involve more interaction with tablets, laptops and mobiles but it is important that you monitor the amount of time spent online and encourage screen breaks away from devices.

Please remember that there are many learning opportunities that can be taken easily and cheaply, even if you are confined to your home.  The resources on this page include lots of fun activities that don't require screen time.

 

 

New Resources

 

We will continue to add new resources for home learning so please keep visiting this page. You should also check the work being set by class teachers on year group pages on the Children’s pencil.  Remember too that you can connect with your teacher on Seesaw.

Music

We would love you to join in with a new project called 'learn a song at home'. We are all going to learn a brand new song called 'Lift up your voice' so that when we have our first singing assembly back together we can lift the roof and sing it together as a big choir.

 

Here’s the FREE download link to the video of the song

http://bit.ly/LearnAsongAtHome.

 

Just click on the link and download the track with the lyrics and enjoy singing 'Lift up your voice' at home. You could teach your whole family the song!  I have also attached the lyrics so you can practise without the backing track.
