Home Learning

Thanks to everyone’s commitment our learning platform worked well during the recent periods of lockdown.  The platform will now remain for those having to self-isolate and for homework.

However, as a community, we need to strive together to help our children to achieve.  Please click here to see how you may help your child at home.

If your child is having to access learning from home and you need to borrow any equipment please e-mail tatworth@educ.somerset.gov.uk, or telephone Mrs Kellaway.  Likewise, should you require technical support.

Whilst learning from home all our school policies still apply as if a child be in school.  The links below will take you to some of our policies and documents that directly apply to remote learning.

All remote learning will be provided via Microsoft Teams which may be accessed from a variety of devices, including PCs, laptops and even Xbox or PX-4.  Access information is given below:

Microsoft 365 with a PC or laptop, including information on Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365 via Xbox or Playstation

Our meaningful and ambitious curriculum will not change – just the way that it is delivered.  Teachers will prepare lessons that are progressive, so whilst children may undertake the lessons at a time convenient to the household they do need to do so in consecutive order, not dip in and out.

Government have also indicated that schools should set the following amount of work:

Reception Class: 3 hours per day

Years 1 and 2: 3 hours per day

Years 3 – 6: 4 hours per day

These hours include a maths and English/phonics lesson each day and at least one other subject.  Reading should be done daily and extra comprehension work, times table work and spelling work will also be added.

Every Monday morning each class will have a timetable uploaded onto the general channel.

Lessons will be uploaded each day by 8.50 am at the latest.

Children in Years 1 to 6 will be asked to upload work through assignments in Microsoft Teams.  Reception may upload work on Microsoft Teams or Tapestry

Please ensure that you have age-appropriate parental controls on any digital devices and use internet filters to block any malicious websites.

The ‘chat’ function is for children/parents to make comments and ask questions during the session time.  Teachers will answer any questions in due course.  Please remember that all messages written on the Teams channels may be viewed by everyone else.  If parents wish to contact the teacher directly, please use the homelearning email address: homelearning@tatworthschool.co.uk
