"Christ be with me, Christ within me,  Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to win me,  Christ to comfort and restore me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,  Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me,  Christ in mouth of friend and stranger."

 

KEYWORKERS: PLEASE ONLY USE THE SCHOOL

Home Learning while in Self-Isolation


If you are in Self-Isolation while school is still open please do the below:

  1. Listen to your child read daily and ask them questions about the text.  There are some ideas here: https://www.st-gregorygreat.gloucs.sch.uk/english-reading-phonics/ .
  2. Learn and re-learn any spellings.
  3. Work on your child’s number bonds, basic maths work and multiplication tables.  There are some great links here: https://www.st-gregorygreat.gloucs.sch.uk/mathematics/ .
  4. Review the curriculum map for your child’s yeargroup which can be found here: https://www.st-gregorygreat.gloucs.sch.uk/year-groups/ .  Research aspects of the curriculum to get them a step ahead in readiness for their classroom learning in terms 5 and 6.
  5.  Make use of the myriad of websites and learning platforms on offer that can provide educational games, apps, videos to support your child.  Some can be found here: https://www.st-gregorygreat.gloucs.sch.uk/learning-at-home/ .

 

Home Learning while school is closed

DoJo

We are thinking of contingency plans and what we can do to help pupils continue learning at home if our current situation changes and the government ask schools to close.  Your child has gone home with a letter, where you will have information on how to login to Class Dojo .

 

Please note that this can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop computer or a mobile device (via app).
Class Dojo will help teachers to share work/tasks on a daily basis. We will send out more details about how this will work in the coming days.  At this stage, you are only expecting you to login for each of your children. Please do not comment or upload anything on there at this stage.

 

Please don't forget to visit our Learning at Home page where we have lots of useful information and resources!
