Home Learning

Information below regarding Home Learning during school closure was sent home with pupils on Thursday 19th March 2020. Pupils have individual letters containing their usernames and passwords to the resources below.

 

  • Each week, teachers will post activities for pupils to complete on our school website.
  • To find this, visit www.spaacademyaskern.com. Click ‘Home Learning’ and your child’s year group.
  • This page will update each Friday at 12 noon, giving you and pupils information and activities for the coming week. It will suggest what can be completed each day. This will normally be:

Arithmetic

A daily set of questions for pupils to complete in their home learning books.

These come with a downloadable set of answers for pupils to check against. There will also be links posted shortly to video explanations for some of these skills.

 

Maths

Pupils will visit the MyMaths website. They will be asked to login using their login details.

1. Visit www.mymaths.co.uk

2. Click Login and login using the school username and password, available on individual pupil letters.

3. Click 'Portal Login' and login using pupils' individual usernames and password.

4. Complete the weekly tasks set by teachers. 

Times Tables Rockstars

Pupils should visit https://play.ttrockstars.com/ and login using their username and password.

Pupils should select ‘Garage’ mode and play for up to 30 minutes a day. This website automatically introduces and tests new times tables when pupils are speedy and accurate in those already being answered.

Reading

For this, pupils should visit www.readtheory.org and login using the details provided on the individual letters.

This will then take them through to reading texts and varied questions. These questions are designed to let pupils practise the skills we often teach in school reading sessions. Their progress is tracked and recorded for teachers to monitor.

Other Activities

If school is closed for a long period of time, teachers will post different activities for pupils to complete in their Home Learning books on the school website each week.

 

Communication

  • The above website will be updated each Friday at 12pm, giving updated activities for the week.

If you have any issues, please email admin@askernspa.doncaster.sch.uk or visit the Contact Us page and our team will respond to you.

 

Internet Access

If you do not have access to the internet at home, we will be issuing work packs for pupils to work through.

 

We recognise that this school closure, following government advice, will cause disruption. We hope that by work being set for your pupils online that we are able to, together, ensure that disruption to our pupils’ learning is minimised.
