Home Learning Resources

After Easter, we will be providing children and families with Home Learning projects which are broken into age ranges EYFS (F1 & 2), KS1 (Year 1 & 2), LKS2 (Year 3 & 4), UKS2 (Year 5 & 6). The learning projects have been designed so that all children throughout school will broadly follow the same theme. The benefit of this is that for those of you with children in different year groups, the children will all be focussing on a similar theme. It is hoped that this will help to make it more manageable for you to support family home learning.

The Learning Project documents are an overview of a week’s worth of learning. It is intended to be supportive guide and completed at your own pace. The learning project outlines the overview of learning in English and maths and your class teacher will continue to send specific details and resources to support the learning via Marvellous Me. We have also tried to add an element of choice for children with wider curriculum learning as the activities are presented as a ‘Wider Curriculum Menu’. This means that your child is able to choose which activities they want to do, in the order that they want or could spend more time on one particular activity or task.

The learning projects will be uploaded weekly onto the page below. We will always aim for you to access and download the next week’s Home Learning Project in advance. Please click on the links below to access your child’s weekly home learning project.

Bluecoat Primary Academy Family Engage Time

At Bluecoat Primary Academy, we pride ourselves on our Christian ethos which impacts all aspects of our school life. We realise that while so many of our children are staying safe at home during the Covid-19 outbreak, they are not getting the chance to meet together in collective worship or in their classes for Engage Time. We also recognise that in times of uncertainty, it is often our faith in God that keeps us going and that this can bring reassurance when other aspects of life feel overwhelming. Because of this, we believe that it is vital for our Bluecoat family, adults and children alike, to take time to reflect on their faith and on the bigger picture. With this in mind, we are excited to introduce BPA Family Engage Time. Click below to find out more and to access the resources:

Marvellous Me
https://marvellousme.com/

Marvellous Me is a website and app that we use at Bluecoat Primary Academy in order to communicate and engage with parents about their children’s learning and success.

We will be using the Marvellous Me app as a tool during school closure to communicate with parents and children about daily home learning tasks. For instance, teachers will use the app to set daily maths, English and wider curriculum learning tasks for their year group. This app will be the teacher’s main communication channel between parents, children and teachers while the school remains closed.  Please can you make sure you have the app downloaded onto your device so you can stay updated. If you are not connected, we have sent a letter home with your child’s unique code. If you are having difficulty with this or do not have your unique code, please contact the school office who will be able to assist you with this.

Purple Mash is a website full of learning, creative tools, activities and games for all ages from Nursery through to Year 6. This online learning platform will be one of the main resources that we use to set work during the school closure. KS2 children are used to using this platform weekly in computing lessons but can also be used to support all subjects across the curriculum. Every child in our school has had an account created and been provided with a Purple Mash login. This login can be found either in your child’s home learning pack or reading diary.
