Please click here to find information for parents regarding our remote learning offer at Chandag Infant School. https://www.chandaginfantschool.org.uk/assets/uploads/Documents/Home-Learning/CIS-Remote-Education.pdf
We use Tapestry (EYFS) or Seesaw (KS1) to communicate and share home learning. Your child’s class teacher will use this to share learning with you at home and to comment on your child’s reading, so please check frequently.
It is important to be kind to yourself, now more so than ever. Whether your child is in school or learning from home, we have a dedicated staff who are here to help and support you in any way they can. Please contact the school office on 0117 986 4129 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, we are here to help.
Here a few useful wellbeing links to use at home for adults:
Here a few useful wellbeing links to use at home for children:
Every child has access to Spelling Shed at home, it’s a great way to practise reading and writing common exception words and apply the phonics being taught in lessons. Your child’s class teacher will upload personalised spellings as ‘assignments’ for your child to practise at home. The more you play, the more creative you can be with designing your avatar. https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb
Our brilliant PTA have raised funds for the children to have access to Doodle Maths at home.
Little and often is the Doodle Maths approach and your child’s teacher will set challenges to support learning in class. Please try and use as frequently as you can so that you are in the ‘green zone’. Which class will have the most children in the green zone each week?

We follow the WhiteRose scheme of learning for Maths and they offer a range of free resources and parent packs that you can download at home. https://whiterosemaths.com/for-parents/
Shared reading, talking about books and reading for pleasure are so important. This precious skill can be shared at home together, using picture books, school reading books or using some of these interactive ideas.
Children who are self-isolating but who are well while your family wait for test results
It is important that children keep up with their education whilst at home if they are well enough to do so. Please follow the link below to find three daily lessons to support your child's learning at home. Please choose the appropriate year group and then select the day of the week. https://classroom.thenational.academy/schedule-by-year
Teachers would love to see children's work, so please share what they do via Tapestry (Reception) or Seesaw (Year 1 and 2). Login details have been sent to you.
Teachers will record audio comments after viewing the work and will telephone your child once a week to keep in touch. They will aim to do this in the first two days of self-isolation. If you have not heard from your child’s teacher by the end of the third day, please telephone the school office and this will be arranged for you. If you need further support, please do not hesitate to ask. Please note that worksheets will only be issued to children who are unable to access online learning.
Please see your child’s class page for further useful resources to help your child’s learning at home.
