Learning from home

Welcome to our 2021 lockdown – “single unit of work”.

Teachers have compiled a ‘single unit of work’ for students to complete during this week of lockdown. The ‘single unit of work’ is available on the school website in the learning from home tab.

Parent responsibilities – please provide support for your children by:

• Establishing routines and expectations

• Defining a space for your child to work in

• Provide a workbook for your child to work in

• Beginning and ending each day with a check-in with your child

• Taking an active role in helping your children process their learning – supervising their learning

• Encouraging physical activity and/ or exercise

• Checking in with your child regularly to help them manage stress

• Monitoring how much time your child is spending online

• Keeping your children social, however set rules around their social media interactions

Student responsibilities during this lockdown – these responsibilities should be adjusted according to the age of your child:

• Establishing and/ or following a daily routine for learning

• Identify a safe, comfortable, quiet place in the home where they can work effectively and successfully

• Follow the “single unit of work” timetable, complete tasks and do their best

We are providing work that requires supervision, however, there are some tasks that can be done independently. Work through the timetable that has been provided for each day. Don’t be tempted to rush ahead or be too concerned if you do not complete all the work.

The Department of Education have made recommendations for time spent learning from home:

• Early Stage 1 and Stage 1 – approximately 2.5 hours per day

• Stage 2 and Stage 3 – approximately 3 hours per day

• and time spent doing additional activities including physical activities

If you require more work, there are learning packages on the Department of Education website. Please click this link; https://education.nsw.gov.au/teaching-and-learning/learning-from-home/learning-at-home/learning-packages

Thank you for your ongoing support, feedback and the supervisory task you are about to undertake. If you have any further questions, please email the school with the class teacher’s name in the subject line.

We will continue to provide you with updates on the website and School App. We encourage you to regularly visit the school website as there is a new tab “learning from home”.
