Home Learning Week 1
Supporting your SEN Learner
The learning activities suggested by Year Groups are provided to ensure children experience a wide range of tasks, whilst learning at home. In school, these activities are adjusted for individual pupils, who have a special educational need (SEN), to ensure that they can make progress with their learning. Please make any adjustments to the learning tasks that you believe will enable your child to learn from the activity. Some examples of this are to: chunk activities into smaller parts; scribe for your child or encourage the child to use a word processor; share the reading of a text; show your child one question at a time; adjust words or numbers to enable understanding; limit focus time to 15-20 minutes before having a 5 minute conversation/physical movement; give much praise and encouragement to complete a task. You may also wish to encourage your child to practice typing skills. BBC Dancemat is a programme for children which supports this learning and is recommended for home use.
Supporting your More Able Learner
For children who show a very good understanding of a particular task, please set an extension task. For example, this may be to research an area of interest and present this to the family, relate the learning to everyday life situations, or set five or more questions and ask a family member to answer them. Children can generate their own ideas as to how they can further their learning too. You may wish to extend your children's' thinking (and therefore learning) by asking open questions (higher order questions), such as "How...?" and "Why...?". These questions often generate a longer and more considered response from learners and therefore challenge children to reflect on ideas, whilst also using their reasoning skills. Consider different ways in which children can share and apply their understanding e.g. an understanding of addition in maths can be used / applied when adding up the items in your trolley at the supermarket (or your online shopping basket)

Specialist Teacher Home Learning Tasks
In addition to the home learning activities, pupils may choose to develop and extend their learning further by completing one of a variety of enrichment tasks. These will be referenced in the Year Group Home Learning Grids above.
