Garden Suburb Junior School

Home Learning Zone

Please have a look at our Online Safety page for more information on staying safe online during school closures. 

We hope that providing daily tasks will help to give parents and children more structure to their home learning experience. 


Our school community is missing the interaction with the children, parents and colleagues. The class teachers would like to stay in touch with the children and we have uploaded a ‘Home Learning Reflection’ task for them to complete.


There is also a space for you to comment on your child’s wellbeing, attitude and participation over the course of the week. We would like all children and parents to complete this and return it to their class teacher by 3:30pm on the Friday of every week. 

The email address for your class teacher will be sent home by Friday 24th April. In line with online safety requirements, this communication should be sent by an adult. Your child should not be communicating directly with their class teacher by email. Class teachers will return the reflection task, with their comments, the following week by email. The teachers are already looking forward to hearing from the children and reading the reflections they make on our new home learning programme.

Please be aware that there can be no substitute for the interaction that children would normally have with their teacher and classmates. At school, lessons would normally include teacher explanations, pupil discussions, partner and group work as well as the use of practical and visual resources.  As a result, the home learning resources are quite different from how learning would normally take place in the classroom. To that effect, new resources have been created by each year group team.

Learning and working at home can be a much more intense experience and you will need to build in more breaks. I am sure that parents who are working from home currently will already have realised that it can be more tiring than being at work and this may be the same for the children.

We realise that many parents are having to manage the home learning of more than one child whilst also trying to work from home.  We do not want to add stress to you or your child. Whilst we have provided a suggested timetable, please do what you can and don’t worry if your child is unable to complete all of the set tasks. You may have devised your own programme of study/activities and that too is acceptable.

Good luck and stay safe.
