Introduction

Welcome to our Remote Learning programme.


Please take the time to read through our Remote Learning section to view our policies and many useful resources to support you whilst you are learning at home.

Reception and Year One
Your remote learning is accessed via Tapestry. Please see the useful guides below to support you in logging in. Your class teachers plan your home learning provision and give individualised feedback. If you require any further support, please do not hesitate to contact the school via hello@truroacademy.org.uk.

 

Years 2 to 6
Home learning for years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 is accessed via Seesaw where your class teachers plan your home learning provision and give individualised feedback. Pupils have access to this via the CHILD LOGIN button on the homepage and can freely use Sumdog and other apps. Please see our login support videos below, and if you experience any difficulties, please contact the school.

By completing the learning in this form, your child will receive timely feedback from school staff, as well as interacting with their peers during our weekly class Teams meetings.

 

Thank you for supporting your child with their learning at home. Please see below some useful links to support your remote learning.

Please remember that whichever device your child is on internet safety is key. Do not leave your child unattended on the internet for long periods and aim to engage with the activities.

Please visit the Aspire Online Safety page at the link below for further guidance.

Helpful pointers for home educating

Motivation is key and regular sessions each day will help with this. If your child feels saturated, try a different task. Reward the effort made with a star (stuck or hand-drawn) at the end of the work.

Create a daily timetable, design it with your children. Factor in fun times for all. Learning time needs to have a different feel to playtime. 

Read the task in advance of your child so you have any idea of what they need to do.  If you have several children can the older children support the younger ones? Can you all do the same activity at times (art, music, science?), to avoid your attention being pulled in many ways.

Make sure there is a balance to the day, ensuring plenty of exercise. Have a mixture of handwritten and online tasks.

If your child is struggling, reassure them. We often use the phrase, “You haven’t got it yet but one day you will”. 

And BREATHE!  You've totally got this...
