Home Learning – Online
Online Home Learning at St Richard’s from January 2021 onwards
It is vital that children at St Richard’s continue to make excellent progress in their learning whilst we are closed to most pupils. Pupils in Early Years and Key Stage One are expected to undertake 3 hours of home learning per day, Monday to Friday throughout lockdown. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are expected to undertake 4 hours of daily study, Monday to Friday. Please visit the offline and online home learning pages of this website for more information.
From January 2021 onwards:
Online (internet-based) home learning during lockdown: the school is using the Education City platform to allow teachers to set, monitor and mark tasks on a daily basis for pupils in their class. This will be in place from Monday 11th January 2021 at 8.30am. Children have been shown how to use these resources. Log-in details will be re-sent home through the post in the week commencing Monday 11th January 2021. Parents may also phone school on 224 5552 in order to request their child’s log-in details.
