Resources For You and Your Child
We have put together a list of learning fact sheets for parents which give valuable information for when you want to help your child with homework or other aspects of their learning.
Here are some fun websites that you may enjoy and find helpful to use with your child (mainly for classes 1 and 2):
Robert Smith has collected a wealth of visual resources over ten years in his career as a primary school teacher and has designed a website called ‘The Literacy Shed’ with the aim of providing high quality resources for schools to use. We are fortunate to have our own ‘Literacy Shed’ on the website showcasing our work.
Our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is called Curriculum Visions. It is an interactive page-turning library, which lets our children access over 140 books, whether they are at school or at home. Once you’ve accessed the book of your choice, simply ‘swish, flip and wiggle’ your mouse to the corner of the page, wait for the page to curl and drag the page across the screen’. . . it’s as easy and fun as that!
Note: you will need a username and password from school.
Tip: From the homepage, watch the tutorial of how to use the VLE
‘Purple Mash’ The school has recently subscribed to ‘Purple Mash’, an online space for children to use technology creatively. The website contains a wide variety of games and activities which support the new curriculum for Computing and other subjects. The children will be using this website as part of their Computing sessions in school, but is also accessible at home with their own individual log-in that they have been given. Many of the activities are also compatible with tablets. This means the children will be able to access work done in school from home and vice versa. To access the website at home, please follow these steps:
Go to www.purplemash.co.uk/sch/high-bs39 Log in using the details on your child’s individual login card.
Able, Gifted and Talented
High Littleton Primary School promotes an environment that ensures the children feel comfortable and good about achieving high standards. We encourage children to be independent in their learning. This will include the provision of opportunities for children to organise their own work, access the resources they need, work unaided, make their own choices about work, evaluate what they are doing and be self-critical.
Music tuition is available within school for Key Stage 2 children. They could chose from keyboard, strings (guitar or violin) and certain wind instruments. If you have any queries regarding the musical instrument tuition, please contact the school office.
