We miss you

Due to COVID-19 our school is partially closed, for those children who are at home please use the ‘Home Learning’ links below which are set out by class.

Home Learning

Your child’s learning is of course important to us, so we’ll continue to help your child to learn.

  • The class teachers will provide weekly home learning overviews which will be uploaded to the link below each week. These will have tasks to complete at home and resources and websites to support the children. You will find these under the Home Learning Page. Each class will have their own section. These will be uploaded each Friday.
  • Pupils are expected to complete the home learning tasks in the exercise books that were sent home this week. Please use a pencil and ensure that work is well presented.
  • Parents can contact the teachers via office@martleshamacademy.org and questions and queries will passed on and teachers will respond.

Governments online education resources for home education

Oak National Academy

To support parents with home learning during lockdown the government have produced some online classrooms that offer free teaching videos, lessons, quizzes and worksheets.  New lessons will be uploaded each week.

This will support you as the teacher will do the teaching and you can offer guidance and support to your child.  If you go to  lessons and  then select the year group and then  the subjects that you would like.  We hope that you find this useful when home schooling. https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/
