Home School Online Learning

Welcome To Wistow School's Home Learning Page

Welcome to Wistow School’s Home Learning page. This is a zone that parents and children can access in order to work in partnership with school, in order to continue to learn and thrive, if the school or class bubbles were to be closed due to Coronavirus.

 

As a teaching team, we will endeavour to provide the children with work, spellings, arithmetic homework and projects to keep the children on track with their learning. We need you, as the parents, to work with us in supporting your child when needed and to encourage them to complete the work set.

 

Each class will have their own page, which will be updated if and when needed, and have a timetable for the week’s learning ahead. Learning time is invaluable and this is why we have put together the resources for you and your child/ren to access.

Suggested Timetable For Home Learning

As a staff, we have put together a timetable of what the day could look like for your child’s learning. Routine is good, as it will keep the children focused and they know what is expected of them.

ARCHIVE

Below are some great links, fun activities, well-being and transition information and awesome websites that we wanted to leave for you to be able to access should you so wish. Many of the children have fed back to us how they have used the site and still wanted to be able to access certain aspects.

Here are some super activities for you to do at home and with your family. There are also some useful transition documents to support your child in the transition back to school.

VE DAY CHALLENGE

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE day, we set a creative challenge for our pupils.

We asked pupils to design a medal to celebrate and remember all the brave people, who were part of World War 2, and sacrificed their lives and other things for us to be here today. Take a look at our gallery, full of amazing creations - well done pupils of Wistow, you have risen to the challenge and we shall remember them.

OUR SCHOOL: Together & Apart 

As you know, we have collective worship together daily in school and this is a time when we all come together and learn lessons from the Bible and learn about Christian values, as well as lots of interesting things including other people's faiths and life lessons. It is a time where we also celebrate the children's achievements and take time to enjoy being together as one whole school. The diocese have put together some faith activities for us to share with you, to support you at home and they aim to be:

 

  • Inclusive: something that children and members of the household of all faiths or of none are able to join in with  
  • Inspirational: a time in the day to think about the big questions; an opportunity to support spiritual development, a time to ‘feed’ their inner being. 
  • Invitational: written so that both children and members of their household are invited to pray, think, or reflect, it is their choice how they respond.  

 

We want to make it clear to parents and carers that this is not meant to be extra work, when you all may already be feeling overwhelmed – and hope that these resources may ‘reach the parts that other activities do not reach’, offering children a sense of normality in the routines they may be missing. 

 

Here is a useful link to resources for children and families provided by

the Diocese of York.

 

Religious Education

 

At Wistow School our Christian values are at the heart of all we do and children take part in weekly RE sessions.  Here are a few links to resources that you may find useful or fun to try at home.

 

 

Song Time!

We will add new songs here for children to listen to and learn. Music lifts the spirits and why not try to learn some of the Makaton ones with them?
