Home-Learning Information

admin

At Broadfield Academy, all home-learning is completed online.

We use Google Classroom.

You can learn about Google Classroom by watching this video:

There are two main ways to access Google Classroom:

Website: www.classroom.google.com

App.

All our pupils have their own login details.

Please do not use your own Google account to access Google Classroom. You will be denied access.

Your child has been given their username and password by their Class Teacher.

If you are unsure what your child’s login details are, please e-mail the year group e-mail address.

At Broadfield Academy, we set our home-learning for each half-term. This is in the form of a Home-Learning Menu.

Home-Learning Menus allow children to choose their activities each half-term.

Home-Learning Menus are uploaded onto Google Classroom each half-term, and they are also available on our school website.

Children must complete at least 2 challenges per half term from each category from the Home-Learning Menu – this is a total of X6 challenges per half-term. For example:

X2 pieces of English

X2 pieces of Maths

X2 pieces of Topic

Here at Broadfield Academy, we set holiday home-learning in the form of a Learning Log.

We expect children to upload their completed Learning Logs on Google Classroom by the first day back after each half-term.

The Learning Log topic is the same for each year group. This allows siblings to work together.

The Learning log is linked to one of our school values.

E.g. Show me what you know about charity – Be Kind.

Children can demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways:

Posters

PPT presentations

Models

Collages

If your child makes a model or has demonstrated their learning in a way that cannot be uploaded onto Google Classroom, simply take a photograph and upload it onto Google Classroom.

In addition to the half-termly Home-Learning Menus, teachers will continue to set the following pieces of work:

Weekly spellings

Weekly times tables

Daily reading

We advise children to complete at least one home-learning activity per week from their Home-Learning Menu. This supports time management and organisational skills.
