Wingfield Academy Home Learning- Week beginning 20th April.
Firstly, we are really grateful to students, parents and teachers for approaching this new style of home learning with such enthusiasm. There were so many examples of great work from the last two weeks of the term, we look forward to sharing these achievements with you all following our Easter break. Keep an eye out for examples of your work / names on the website, and via social media. Your efforts will be recognised with a certificate home and rewards will be provided on your return to the Academy.
Secondly, week commencing Monday 20th April all year groups will be set work via Google classroom. Google Classroom is where the class teacher will upload learning tasks, lesson resources, assignments and quiz assignments which are to be completed and sent back to the teacher by a certain date.

Teachers have been asked to set tasks for the lessons your young person would have within the Academy day, with tasks / activities / assignments taking no longer than 45 minutes – 1hr for each lesson: this is to help students to manage their work load from home within the hours of what would have been their school day. If you find your child/children are spending more time than is expected or are struggling to keep up, please let the relevant Year Team Leader know via email so that they can support.
Students would benefit from establishing working routines at home, with regular breaks. Please refer to our latest update – Home Learning – ‘what does this actually look like?’ for support and guidance on establishing routines.
