On-line Learning for School Bubbles who are Self Isolating

home learning

While your child is self-isolating at home they are expected to continue their learning primarily through their Db Primary account. This can be found by clicking on the Log –in button on the right hand corner of the screen.

Your child's log-in details have been sent home with them but if your child is unable to log in for any reason then please contact the school office as soon as possible, where a member of staff will be able to help.

Children are expected to spend a similar amount of time on their learning as they would do at school. However, we do recognise that some families may be juggling adults working from home and looking after younger siblings alongside home learning.

Your child’s teacher will provide a daily timetable, links and resources to complete each learning task on the class homepage.  This will be available by 9.00am each day.

If your child needs help or support, then please contact your child's class teacher by email using the class email address. If you would like to speak to somebody then please contact the school office, who can ask the class teacher to contact you later in the school day by telephone.

Your child's class teacher will keep in regular contact throughout the self-isolation period, including a daily email which will contain any instructions needed to complete their work and telephone calls to support and encourage your child to complete their learning at home.

How can I support my child to learn at home?

  • Make sure that your child gets up at the normal time in the morning and follows their usual routine of washing, dressing and having breakfast.
  • Create a space in your home where children can complete their work. Ideally, sitting on a chair at a table or desk with as few distractions as possible.
  • Monitor your child when using the internet. Look at our school internet poster on the class webpage with your child. Talk about what each letter of SMART means. Your child's class teacher will build in opportunities to look at staying safe online each week in their daily timetables.
  • Find time to work with your child if possible. Ask them about what they are doing and help them to complete tasks. 
  • Praise your child for their efforts, even if they make mistakes. Remember to take short mind breaks when your child needs it - do something active or listen to some music.
  • Read with your child as much as possible – curl up on the sofa with their favourite book, share your own favourite children's stories or choose a newspaper article to read together.
  • Finish home learning at the end of the school day, have family time and stick to bed time routines.
  • Don't forget to celebrate any successes with us. You could email pictures of completed tasks or photographs of your child engaged in a particular activity. We would love to see them.
