Home Learning

The whole offering of remote learning from Chobham has been brilliant. We were very impressed with the speed with which it was set up, the diversity of subjects, and its adaption/iteration over the series of lockdowns (eg the addition of live classes, the addition of Mandarin and other subjects, the move away from Zoom and the fantastic Maths in a Flash). The programme is excellent. We truly appreciate the Herculean effort that has gone into the whole programme. It has provided further evidence for and and reaffirmed our belief that Chobham is a wonderful and well run school. We’re delighted that our kids have the privilege of being students here.

In the primary phase at Chobham Academy, we offer a combination of live lessons via Teams, recorded lessons with associated tasks accessed via the academy website and independent tasks set on Purple Mash – we know that a combination of these elements work for our families as every family is able to engage electronically in different ways. 

According to government requirements, we set at least three hours of work for KS1 and four hours of work for KS2 per day. We teach a broad curriculum via our remote learning which includes English, maths and science as well as a range of foundation subjects. 

The below online learning resources are accessible from home during the school closure. If you do not have your child's username and password for Purple Mash or Accelerated Reader, please email with your child's full name and class.

Accelerated Reader
What else can I be doing to support my child at home?
Your child should continue to read as widely as possible during their time off school.
Students are able to access their AR accounts and take as many reading quizzes as they wish. The teacher will view this activity and provide feedback. Not all books have got Accelerated Reader tests available online but many do. To see if a book has an AR quiz available, use the website below.
To log on to your child’s AR account from home, use the following link.
Accelerated reader: how to access from home tutorial

There are also a number of websites that offer free learning opportunities for children.
Twinkl is an example of one of these, which is giving parents the opportunity to sign up for a free month. The link can be found below. and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS

Films for parents
Films for parents to help their child learn to read at home with Read Write Inc. Phonics are available on our website and YouTube channel. The YouTube channel will have a quick face-lift to help parents find the films easily. We’re adding a parent film to Facebook every day too.

These resources will be incredibly useful and will hopefully continue to support the learning of reading that children have been doing in school. Once again, thank you for your continued support with home learning.
