Home Learning

It is currently difficult to obtain COVID-19 test results in a timely manner.

As a result, more pupils are being required to isolate for longer than we would wish.

We are developing our long-term plan for situations where large numbers of families may need to isolate.

In the meantime, we are directing home learners to the activities on the Oak National Academy. This is an online classroom created by teachers.

You will then be presented with 3 lessons for the day. Some lessons follow on from the previous day – it is easy to click back through the days to find the first lesson in a series.

The tasks are self-contained and feedback is immediate. We would love to hear how your child found the activities – please send any feedback to office@barnsgreen.org.uk and we will pass it onto your child’s teacher.

In the coming weeks we are reviewing how we can use our Purple Mash blog system to offer more continuity between home- and class- based learning.

We will write to you with more details by the end of September.
