Home Learning

Welcome to Limpsfield Junior School Home Learning Area

Welcome to the Limpsfield Junior School home learning page. We are very aware that Covid-19 has the potential to have an impact on your child’s education through self-isolation or lockdown requirements. This page will provide you with information about our approach to home learning as well as some useful websites. 

Home Learning

If your child, or someone in your household, is waiting for a test, or a test result, then there is some temporary work on the year group tabs below. This work is to keep them occupied while you wait for the test outcomes. If the test is negative your child can bring this work into school to show their class teacher. If it is positive, then their teacher will contact you to discuss Google classroom.

If your child is to be absent for a longer period of time our main strategy to provide effective home learning is through Google Classroom. Teachers have been working with children to ensure that they know how Google Classroom works and are able to access it at home. If your child is self-isolating, then they will not be able to attend school for 10 or 14 days. In this situation their class teacher will contact you to discuss with you, and them, the work that they will be expected to complete. This work will be regularly updated and will closely follow the curriculum that the children remaining in school are being taught. If you would like to find out more about Google Classroom then there are lots of tutorials on YouTube. We have included one below but don’t worry if it is confusing as we are training your children.

Google Classroom Tutorial

If at any time your child has difficulty working online, then please contact school and we will be happy to deliver work to your house.

Spelling shed

Spelling shed is an online resource where children can access games and resources to help them practise their weekly/fortnightly spellings that are set in class. Their teacher will set assignments (similar to those for TT Rockstars) where they can play games and earn points. It is a fun and engaging way to help them practice their spellings. If home learning is required at any time the weekly spellings will be available to access through this forum. Children will have been given log in details to access this website, which have been (or will shortly be) added to their homework books.

Oxford Owl

Oxford Owl is an online resource to support learning at home particularly with reading. The website features an eBook library for 3 to 11 year olds, which includes advice and support for parents as well as educational activities and games. Children have been given log in details and these have been (or will shortly be) added to their homework books.

Keeping Active

It is really important that as long as you are well enough you all keep active. There are lots of links on the internet that can help you to do this and some of these are below. In our opinion, the Joe Wicks exercise videos are still our favourite
