Home learning 2020
*** SUMMER HOLIDAYS 2020 ~ please visit our holiday activities page here for some fun ideas that your child may like to try over the Summer ***
Welcome to our home learning page. During these unprecedented times, we are committed to ensuring that your child has the appropriate resources to continue their learning journey. In these web pages you will find weekly session plans for the range of subjects your child enjoys at New Bridge.
We understand that this is a very challenging time for our families and we would not want you to feel under any additional pressure. Please use the resources on these pages in a way that works for your own family and circumstances.
We have a new Remote Learning guide, our one-stop resource list for parents, pupils and staff, which brings together all the resources we use in school and also includes links to other resources that may be of interest to you – please click here to view it. The guide will be kept updated as new and exciting apps and resources emerge. Please contact school if you need login details for any of the apps listed.
*** We also have a new Online Safety guide for parents and carers which brings together a wealth of information, links and advice that we hope you will find very useful – please click here view it: Online Safety. If you need any further assistance with anything covered in our new guide, please email email@example.com and we will do our best to help ***
We have asked teachers to provide work remotely using the resources you will have available to you at home. Please click into the area below that your child is taught in and follow the guidance on these pages. If you have any difficulties with this, please speak to your child’s class teacher during one of their keeping in touch phone calls.
We have put together some advice on supporting your child to manage their behaviour at home here and you may also find the following guidance produced by Oldham Council’s Educational and Child Psychology Service helpful:
‘Beyond Words’ have produced a special resource, a short story without words that your child may find helpful here.
For support with your child’s iPad, we have a new channel – ‘New Tube’ – with useful ‘how to’ guides available here.
We are also collecting snippets of useful information and links as we come across them which you may want to check from time to time – please click here for the ‘useful resources’ page.
We have exciting news from Live Music Now to share with you!!!
Live Music Now musicians are usually to be found visiting schools all over the UK performing participatory concerts and leading music residencies. Whilst they aren’t able to visit schools in person, Live Music Now have commissioned them to create short recorded concerts and music sessions for schools and families to enjoy for free.
You can find the videos here with more videos added each week:
~ wide range of performances, instruments and musical styles
~ ranging from 15 – 30 minutes in length
~ accessible for children and young people with additional learning needs
~ inspired by the musicians’ visits to SEN schools
~ opportunities to join in and learn new things about music
This library is a new area of work for the charity, so if you have feedback or ideas for future videos, please could you let them know by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
Live Music Now is also now delivering live online music sessions directly into the classroom and at home with families via Zoom, Microsoft Teams and other online platforms. Read here about what we’ve been doing with SEN schools and families.

Academic work was not provided over what would have been the Easter and Summer half term holidays, but teachers put together some fun, leisure and play ideas to keep your child engaged and entertained. These activities were added to your child’s class page and we also pulled together some fun ideas for you including our virtual Holiday Club activities – we have left these online in case they are still helpful, please click here to see the Easter activities and here for our May half term fun.
