Home Learning.

All pupils at HJS are expected to complete homelearning tasks. The expectations are outlined in their home school books and are focused on the core skills of reading, spelling and multiplication tables. The expectation increases as the children move through the school.

Google Classroom

All children at HJS have a google account and use it to access their google classroom which is a digital learning platform.During school closure, remote learning resources, live sessions and pre-recorded videos will be accessible through Google Classroom.  This will ensure that children are given the opportunity to continue learning remotely, at home.

Remote education for self-isolating pupils

Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school.

Class teachers will post daily activities on the Google Classroom from Day 2 for the children self-isolating. These activities will mirror those taking place in school. IPads and internet access will be provided to children self-isolating if needed (please note this is not for individual day illnesses).  Day 1 home learning is below but children should only complete this if they are well enough.  

Home Learning Day 1


Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. There are other valid and effective methods, some of which are outlined below:

  •  Verbal feedback on learning tasks will normally be given during one of our live sessions (where a whole class bubble shuts) or via ‘mote’. This may be individual feedback or whole-class feedback.
  • Pupils may be required to complete quizzes, marvellous mistakes or got it grids which are linked to our teaching and learning policy.
  • Pupils will be able to submit pieces of learning on Google Classroom (including pictures of their paper-based learning or digitally created learning) which school staff monitor and provide feedback when required.
