Home Learning

 

Welcome to the Telford Park Home Learning Page.

Please find links below to a range of resources to support your child’s learning at home. As a school we recommend that you start by completing the activities set by your child’s teachers on Student Portal and then use the other resources provided to support their learning.

We would encourage pupils to study between 5-6 hours each day using the below resources. If you do have any questions or need a login for any of the resources below then please email park.homelearning@taw.org.uk

Tips for Home Working

Please find below a few tips to help you support your child when working from home.

  • Make sure you provide opportunities for your child to exercise and stay healthy – this is a link (https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html) to a daily workout with Joe Wicks that is a great way to ensure your child stays healthy and is ready to learn.

  • Try to set up some kind of routine such as core subjects (Maths, English & Science) in the morning and set reasonable targets such as one task a day in these subjects. They are skill focussed so lots of practice is needed.

  • Have set break and lunch times to break up the learning throughout the day,

  • Use afternoon for subjects like geography and history where there are lots of facts to learn.

  • Practical subjects are harder to do at home but could be set as challenges after lunch.

  • Quiz pupils on what they have learnt or get them to teach you about key subjects or topics.

  • Don’t underestimate the amount your child can do and trust them to make good learning choices. Don’t take all the responsibility from them regarding their learning.
