Home Learning Plan 2

This page provides home learning activities for children who are in isolation for long periods, either because someone in the home has had a positive test result or the whole family are in isolation with no symptoms.

It is expected that work should be completed if the child is well enough to access the work and, unless they are able to access it independently, has an adult available who is well enough to help them.

In the event that your child is at home, in the circumstances outlined above, then you are invited to use the ‘Year Group’ email address (YearX@eastmorton.bradford.sch.uk) should you or your child have any questions, need help, or wish to share any work completed with their class teacher. Please be aware that teachers will respond as soon as they can, but responses may not be immediate.

Parents/Carers: Please read the E-safety note at the bottom of this page.

Warming – Up

A good warm up increases flexibility and blood flow to a given area, which limits the chance of a muscle pull and joint pain. Warming up also prepares your muscles to stretch during other exercises. If the muscles are warmed up and able to stretch further, this will increase your range of movement and lower the risk for injury.

Song-A-Thon – Mr B video – getting your heart rate to increase and warm your body up 

Stretching – Mr B video

Cool Down

A cool down is an essential part of your workout. A cool down can last for 3–10 minutes and includes stretches or gentle variations of the movements you did during your workout. The purpose of cooling down after exercise is to allow your heart rate and breathing to return to normal and create a relaxing body.

E-safety Note for Parents & Carers

During periods of school closure and home learning, children’s time spent online increases, as such it is important that we remain vigilant about online safety and ensure that out children are protected when using technology. Please could we remind you to ensure your internet settings are up to date, children are using ‘child friendly’ online search engines (such as Kidrex.org or Kiddle for example) and you could revisit the SMART rules which we teach in school to ensure that your child knows how to keep themselves safe. Our E-safety page has more information. If you need any further support in online safety, please contact us.
