As you will be aware, the government has ordered that from Monday 4th January, all London primary schools will be required to provide remote learning to the vast majority of their children.
At Holbeach, we are providing Remote Learning via Microsoft Teams. Your child will need to log in to their online classroom using the log in details the school provided you with previously. They will then have access to the following timetable each day:
While we appreciate that very young children will always require a significant amount of time and attention from the adult that they are with at home, we are confident that your experience of the remote learning we are providing this term will be a positive one. Feedback from the parents and carers in the classes who are experiencing this kind of learning has been hugely encouraging.
At Holbeach, we already have some fantastic online resources that are available to use at home. Your child has logins for all these programs, which will support their learning. Click on the Program you wish to open
Make learning Times Tables fun. Times Table Rock Stars allows children to create a rock star character, practise their times tables and the corresponding division facts and ‘buy’ things for their rock star.
Bug Club is the only whole-school reading programme that brilliantly combines an online reading world with fantastic print books, and assessment tools. All children at Holbeach have an account for this fantastic online reading resource.

Everyone at Holbeach has access to the ‘London Grid for Learning.’ The London Grid for Learning is a community of schools and local authorities committed to using technology to enhance teaching and Learning.
One unique aspect of the LGfL service is the huge array of teaching and learning resources included, all of which can also be used at home by pupils using their LGfL login.
Bitesize has plenty of straightforward lessons in Primary Maths and Primary English. The BBC are supporting learning at home with collections of educational resources including quizzes, videos and activities hand-picked from BBC Bitesize and the wider BBC, for other subjects such as Science, History and Geography.
The curriculum-based content is developed by educational consultants and is organised by topic or theme to make it easy for you to find.
Wowzers Red Class, another fantastic week of home learning. You are all doing so well, we’re really proud of all of you.
Here is some of the incredible work you have done this week.
This week we have been working on The Gingerbread Man. We told the story with lots of actions, we built up a story map with characters, labels and settings. We drew characters from the story with speech bubbles. Then, at the end of the week we made story maps with our own animals in.
We had a lot of fun with our magical maths remotes, the maths magic was so strong, I got very dizzy from all the spin buttons you were pressing!
