Parental feedback on Live Learning
For 1 hour at the end of each day children will be expected to complete self-directed learning. They can use TTRockStars, Purple Mash, Education City, Spelling Shed, IXL or they can access the free lessons provided by BBC Bitesize.
These tasks will not be on Class Charts, instead the children can choose what they would like to learn using these websites. This is an opportunity for children to become more independent learners and take responsibility for targeting areas they know they need to practise, as well as taking advantage of the free resources that are available to them.

Your child will be asked to complete the home learning tasks in their homework books. The work completed should then be photographed and submitted/uploaded to Class Charts.
