These Learning Project packs have been created as a result of the ongoing risk of St Luke’s shutting due to the Coronavirus outbreak across the UK. In creating our Learning Projects we fully acknowledge that they cannot replace the quality of learning your child receives at school however the projects mean that all children can access them to maximise their learning whilst at home.
What are the aims of the Learning Projects?
To create age specific learning opportunities for primary school children.
To create a resource for parents that is easy to access and use - the focus is on parents being able to help deliver the content or children accessing it independently.
Key learning is linked to the National Curriculum.
To enable children to continue with their learning at home during an enforced shutdown.
To enable families to focus on a joint topic and theme to promote family wide learning.
To provide structure and focus to each day that an enforced shutdown occurs.
To centralise online learning resources and links into an easy to manage format for families.
How do I use the Learning Projects?
As a parent your first step is to select the age range linked to the year group your child is in. There are seven weeks worth of projects that are available and whilst they have been created with an order in mind you do not have to follow this. It may be that you look at the table below and decide that your child or if you have more than one, children, would prefer to spend a week on the animals theme in the first week rather than in the week four as suggested - this is totally fine. The aim is for you to complete a minimum of two hours of learning a day with your child but this is very much your parental choice and you may wish for your child to do more.
What happens if my child finds the learning too difficult?
Our first piece of advice to parents is that ALL children find elements of learning challenging at times so try not to worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. If this happens then make a note of what they found hard and move onto another learning activity - the school will cover any misconceptions when we return.
The Learning Projects which have been designed are based on the National Curriculum expectations for the year group which your child is in. It may be that your child finds the tasks set within the Learning Project for their year group too challenging, for example if they have additional learning needs. If this is the case, then we advise that your child accesses the Learning Projects which are set to the age range below, for example a child in Year 3/4 could attempt the KS1 Learning Project if this is more appropriate for them.
