COVID-19 School Closure
As part of the response to COVID-19 Colville Primary School remains closed for the foreseeable future. We will communicate with you using the normal systems regarding any further developments and encourage all parents to make sure we have their up to date contact information. We mainly use email to communicate with parents and our system informs us if emails are delivered. We won't know you have not received information if the email address we hold for you is dormant or incorrect. Colville School is closed, but we are able to offer some limited provision for Key Workers, Vulnerable students and students in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. We form groups of these pupils into 'bubbles' where they are kept together and distanced from other bubbles at school. We take every step necessary to follow the government guidance on making school COVID ready and thank parents/carers for working with us at this challenging time. The vast majority of learning is being done at home. The following text is intended as a signpost for parents, carers and students looking for support with home learning.
Looking for relevant work from your child's class teacher - see the individual class page e.g. Herons (Year 5)
Looking for resources for extra home learning - scroll down for ideas and activities
Looking for online resources - see web link document below
Looking for ways to manage different age home learning - See new BBC resources or follow our whole school planning document for the children who are still attending school. This can be found on the in school blog page under the parents tab. Previous planning is also on the same page so you should be able to find a theme that suits your child.
There are some essential bits and pieces in the school foyer if you are passing school on an essential errand during the day 9-3. We will print and supply the sheets and resources needed for the activities and place them in the school office. We will make our best efforts to ensure the physical resources for the week ahead will be in the office by lunchtime on a Monday.
Ideas and resources
There are lots of resources on the internet for pupils. Make sure you check sites in advance of your children to make sure you’re happy with the content. The list here is mainly aimed at younger pupils because the older pupils will be able to recall ones they have used in class or use a search engine to find relevant topic information.
Planning and documentation (for parents/carers)
Our school curriculum is available on the curriculum tab so you can see the general themes that the pupils have been learning about in school. The National Curriculum also provides statuary and non-statutory guidance on the content of different subject areas. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum
We will be publishing the weekly topic plans we will be using with the children who are in school so that parents can use this to help guide any learning at home should they wish.
We have subscriptions with the two following websites for our parents and pupils to use outside of school.
Maps – Digi map login https://digimapforschools.edina.ac.uk/login
Possion Rouge – As a subscriber school the company have kindly offered the following password and log-in details for all our pupils until the middle of April. A firm favourite with the younger pupils!
While we usually avoid the use of worksheets in school parents may find it helpful to generate work for their children to complete. There are some free ones available such as https://www.worksheetworks.com/
We will update this page when possible but hope there is enough here to keep everyone occupied and learning for the duration.
