Welcome the King’s Hedges Educational Federation Home Learning Page. Below you will find three sections. First, there is a link to the home learning created by the class teachers in Nursery. All other year groups will now set home learning on Seesaw. Next, are the contact details of the class teachers. Finally, you will find links to a range of other home learning resources. Please choose the best resources for your child/ren and that you find easiest to access. The home learning materials produced by the class teachers contain material that the children will be familiar with. They will recognise the format, vocabulary and tasks.
The most important thing is that your children have opportunities to read, write and practise their maths skills daily. This will help them most when they return to school. It is also important for them to have opportunities to be creative, exercise and have fun.
We hope you find the resources useful.
During the summer lockdown we trialled a secure online platform named Seesaw in Year 4,5 and 6. As we start a new term in school and work to control the spread of COVID-19 we are going to be using Seesaw in school with all classes. Children will be able to access Seesaw in school using an iPad or laptop provided. The platform enables children to post their work (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) online for their teachers. Teachers will give feedback on children’s work and give extra support where necessary. In future, any Home Learning will be set using Seesaw.
Laptops for home learning
The Government are extending the scheme for laptops for school pupils. The Department for Education (DfE) is providing laptops and tablets to help children and families access remote education during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Devices may be available for children.
Please make sure your have completed the short questionnaire at the end of the Seesaw letter to let us know if you are eligible for the loan of a laptop from the school during a local, school or bubble closure to access home learning.
Support with home learning
In the event of a local lock down, bubble or school closure, if you have any questions regarding the home learning pack, please contact your child's class teacher via e-mail. The email address will start with the name of your child's class followed by @kingshedges.cambs.sch.uk. Please direct any other enquiries to the school office - email@example.com
