During our closure, home learning is taking place on Zoom and on Google Classrooms. Please log in and access your child's work through this platform. We strongly recommend that you download the app on Android or iPhone/iPad or Chrome OS. Alternatively you can visit: https://classroom.google.com.
If you are having any problems please email Info@hotham.wandsworth.sch.uk and title your email "Google Classrooms."
A document has been sent to all parents with links for live lessons.
We understand that this is a very difficult time, and juggling home learning is a challenge for any family. Please just do your best and make the resources work for you.
Please see our full Remote Learning offer contained with our policy:
Reading remains one of the most important activities that you can do with your child. Reading anything and everything develops not only accuracy, fluency and expression but also a love of reading. Children have access to books online.
Planning your day
Do what works for your family. Teachers have sent out suggested timetables which may work well for some children. Families with siblings may find it easier to work together, and the children will learn a lot from each other. Please make sure you build in breaks for all of you.
Everybody's well-being is important. There are lots resources on television currently which you can also use to support learning.
And there is a lot of learning in Lego and construction at any age! Handwriting practice is always a winner for some down time each day.
Editing work – "purple pen"
Please go through the work your children completes with them. 1:1 feedback is really helpful for all children. Years 1 - 6 are well practised in correcting and improving their work with a purple pen. If you haven't got purple any colour will work.
Exercise and breaks are important too. Download the GoNoodle App or go onto the website www.gonoodle.com or tune into Joe Wicks on YouTube every morning at 9am https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1 .
