Rise Park Academy Trust Home Learning Page
Due to the ongoing school closure we have created this page to aid the parents of our children with some suggested activities you can do with your children at home. Please click the link below relevant to the year group of your child/children.
Executive Headteacher's Message:
Many thanks to all of you who have been working to support your children's learning at home, and for your submissions of completed work, together with your feedback.
As you are aware, some tasks e.g. Easter holiday projects, have already been set for some year groups, along with links to websites which can be used to supplement your child's progress in English, maths and topical work.
Whilst the timetabling of these activities will be left to your discretion, I would also like to reassure you that there is no expectation that your child completes any school work, other than that which you choose to do, during the Easter holiday break. Please ensure that both you and your child enjoy a period of rest and recuperation even if this holiday is not the same as we would normally experience.
We would love to see any holiday diaries, projects or other tasks which you may wish to undertake, along with any other pre-set tasks which your child achieves. Formalised tasks will then be available to you again as from Monday 20th April, at the start of the summer term.
Sending you all our very best wishes for a safe and healthy Easter.
Havering Libraries - Competitions
Silly Squad Competitions
The Havering Libraries 'Silly Squad' Reading Challenge has launched. We hope many of you have signed up to be a part of it this summer.
They are also running four competitions for children and families to get involved in:
Write a short story
Make a piece of artwork
Compose a poem
Write a book review
Details of each competition is attached. Prizes will be awarded for all the winning entries in the Autumn Term. Make your entries full of fun, laughter and happiness and hopefully they will bring lots of smiles, giggles and some big belly laughs to all who reads them!
The closing date for the competitions is Saturday 5th September 2020. You can visit the following website for more information on how to enter or go to the Havering Libraries Facebook page: https://www.havering.gov.uk/info/20039/libraries/799/havering_libraries_silly_squad_2020
Silly Posts for Social Media
Havering Libraries would also love to feature children and their families on their Facebook page doing silly things to celebrate 'Silly Squad' this summer. Feel free to send in pictures of you with your favourite funny books - maybe pulling a funny face or striking a silly pose, or a picture of you reading in a funny place, or eating a funny snack whilst reading! You could also send in your favourite joke - the funnier, the better! You can send them in via their Facebok messenger or post them directly to their Facebook page. If you share them in this way, they will take this as your permission to share them with their audience.

COVID-19 Book for Children
You may already be aware, but Axel Scheffler has illustrated a book about Covid-19
Coronavirus just for children - and it's available as a FREE download!
The Gruffalo illustrator worked with consultant Professor Graham Medley, two head
teachers and a psychologist to make sure the book got the messages right, answering
questions about quarantine, how you can catch the virus and what happens if you get ill.
Publishers Nosy Crow have asked for donations in lieu of payment, to go to our

For those children who attend Lexia interventions in school you can access Lexia from home by following the instructions and link below:
Lexia Core5 Reading can be used at home for extra practice. Getting started is easy!
To use on a computer, go to www.lexiacore5.com.
To use on an iPad, download the free Lexia Core5 Reading app from the App Store.
(iPad support is limited to these devices: iPad 4+, iPad Mini 3+, iPad Air+, and iPad Pro.)
The first time your child uses Core5, you may need to enter the teacher email shown below. Your child can then log in with the username and password used at school.
Teacher Email (for setup):
It is important that your child works without any help while using Core5. All of the work your child does at home is recorded and reported to school.
The children should all know their usernames and passwords but if your child can't please contact the school and we will do our best to forward it to you.
