Home Learning at Kings Oak Primary

There will be a variety of live/pre-recorded lessons and other work set through our website and Teams. This will be more accessible to you as it will be more teacher lead, and easier for parents than the previous home schooling experience.

As each year group offer varies in the way it is being delivered, it is important that you log on to your child’s home learning page on our website EVERY DAY.  There you will find your child’s work including timetables for any live lessons. Live lessons are to be accessed through Microsoft Teams. You can log onto this platform using the website (type Microsoft Teams into Google) or the Teams app (which will need to be downloaded) and it can be accessed from a laptop or any other smart device.

Please click here to access a useful, easy to follow guide, about Teams and how to access and use it. Once you’ve done this once you’ll see that it’s really easy so try not to be daunted by this.

Don’t leave it until the last minute or you could miss your first lessons.

We expect all children to complete the work assigned EVERY SINGLE DAY. This is extremely important so children do not fall behind. The children attending school are doing exactly the same work and on the days they don’t attend they must log on and complete that day’s work or the next time they are in the work will not follow on.

We will be following this up and if we can see that children aren’t logging on and aren’t sending work back in to teacher when asked, we will contact you just as we would if they were expected in school. Children have still to complete their school work every day, whether they are in the building or learning remotely.

Any issues or questions please contact your child’s year group address which is yearX@kingsoakplc.org.uk (eg. year1@ or year 2@). These emails will be answered quickly between 8.30am and 3.30pm. After 3.30pm, emails will not be picked up until the following day.

Thank you.

FS and KS1 use a READ WRITE INK approach towards phonics.  We understand that although you may be trying your best, phonics can be a difficult concept to grasp.  Please click on the links below for information on how to support your child’s learning:

We have created email addresses specific to Year 1 to Year 6 so you can communicate directly with teachers.  These email addresses are to be used by parents and children in the following ways:

  • To ask questions about homework
  • To send homework or photographs of activities so teachers know what children have been getting up to at home. Please note that teachers won’t be marking the homework, it’s just a way to offer encouragement and congratulate children on their efforts to help to keep them motivated.

These addresses are:

Year1@kingsoakplc.org.uk 

Year2@kingsoakplc.org.uk 

Year3@kingsoakplc.org.uk 

Year4@kingsoakplc.org.uk 

Year5@kingsoakplc.org.uk 

Year6@kingsoakplc.org.uk

Teachers will check on emails a couple of times each day (Monday to Friday) so hopefully you’ll not be waiting too long to receive replies from our staff who are looking to hearing from the children as we are all missing them terribly.

Please note that Foundation Stage families should continue to communicate with teachers via Tapestry.

Thank you
