Bluecoat at Home
Supported Learning Programme
Welcome to the 'Bluecoat at Home' Learning Resources page. We are committed to supporting our families with the continuation of their child's education during this period of school closure and hope that you will engage with and enjoy the programme of learning we have put together for you.
Below you will find a link for each Chapter, within which will be the learning resources for the appropriate year groups. We do not know how long the closure is planned for and will be following the government guidance as appropriate. Should you need to access a previous week's resources please let us know.
Building Learning Power, or BLP, is at the centre of our curriculum and it may be referenced in various learning activities. You may find it helpful to visit our BLP page for further information.
We would encourage all parents to sign up to the Oxford Reading Tree free e-Book library as this will be an invaluable resource now that libraries are also closed. Chapter 1 will be using Tapestry to support their learning and Chapters 2 and 3 will be using Google Classrooms.
In addition, the link below contains a wide variety of online resources with fun ideas and activities.
Supporting your child with Handwriting
Please find below a series of videos & accompanying documents which we hope you find helpful when supporting your child at home with handwriting.
Here at Bluecoat we love stories and we love reading. We are really missing having all the children here to enjoy storytime, so we have created this space for staff to take the opportunity to share some of their favourites with you. Settle down, get comfy and enjoy....
