Introduction

Welcome to our home learning programme.

Below is a link to our Remote Learning Policy (updated September 2020) and our  Remote Learning Plan (updated January 2021) which was issued to all parents on January 7th 2021. Please read the information carefully.

Aspire have a page to assist with logging on issues and a guide to using your child's games console to access learning:

 

Please make sure whichever device your child is on; internet safety is key. Do not leave your child unattended on the internet for long periods and aim to engage with the activities that they are doing. Please visit the Aspire eSafety page at the link below for further guidance.

 

Helpful pointers for home educating

Motivation is key and regular sessions each day will help with this. If your child feels saturated, try a different task. Reward the effort made with a star (stuck or hand-drawn) at the end of the work.

Create a daily timetable, design it with your children. Factor in fun times for all. Learning time needs to have a different feel to playtime. 

Read the task in advance of your child so you have any idea of what they need to do.  If you have several children can the older children support the younger ones? Can you all do the same activity at times (art, music, science?), to avoid your attention being pulled in many ways.

Make sure there is a balance to the day, ensuring plenty of exercise. Have a mixture of handwritten and online tasks.

If your child is struggling, reassure them. We often use the phrase, “You haven’t got it yet but one day you will”. 

And BREATHE!  You've totally got this...
