A Special Video for Home-Learners
All the staff at Fortuna are missing those of you that are still at home learning so much, we decided to make a video just for you...
Fortuna Story Time
We thought it would be nice for your children to see a familiar face from school, so each week we will upload a video of a member of staff reading a story.
The link to this playlist is below and a new video will be added each week.
Our Play Therapist, Di Hoyer, has worked with school to create some online resources that can be used to support your child's behaviour and emotional state. They can be found using the link below:
Coronavirus Home Learning
We understand that the individual circumstances of each of your households will be quite unique at the moment and with this in mind we have tried to make our home learning provision as flexible as possible. Our home learning provision is focused on helping you create a sense of routine at home and keeping your child's brain ticking over until school reopens.
Each week we will provide a menu of maths, reading, spelling/phonics and writing activities for your child to access through the week. Activities are organised into a weekly timetable and we would suggest that your child tries to stick to the timetable if possible, but understand this may not always be possible. Some activities can be repeated on different days if your child enjoys them.
We have also included some additional activities that can be done as mini-projects through the week.
Within the menu of activities, there are some online activities and as always we would recommend that your child is supervised when they are accessing the world wide web. If you have issues accessing the internet, contact school to let us know and we will try to arrange alternative provision.
The home learning plans for your child can be found on your child's class page using the link below:
If you want a more teacher led experience for your home learning, Oak National Academy has been set up to deliver online home learning lessons.
For each year group, teachers across the country have created online lessons for a range of subject areas that your child can follow at home.
It is worth bearing in mind that you will need to access the learning of the stage your child is working at and not necessarily the year group they are in. E.g. if your child is in year 5 but working at stage 3 you will need to access the year 3 materials from Oak National Academy.
These are not particularly tailored to children with special needs but we have included them on this page to ensure you have a broad and flexible set of options to support you with home learning.
Sumdog can also be used to practise spellings and reading. This can be done by clicking the 'Tasks' icon (Yellow with a chequered flag) and selecting either spelling or reading.
Additional Home Learning Resources
Should you wish to do additional learning at home, the following websites have provided resources for home learning (Please remember that your child would need to access work at the stage they are working at and this may not match their chronological age).
If you are lucky enough to have some Lego at home, you could try the Lego challenges below. There is a new challenge to have a go at each day.
