Work Space

Your starting point for home learning

Welcome to the HJS Work Space

Whether you are isolating at home, or coming to school, this is the place to find tips to help you learn

From here, you can easily link to the Home Learning page for your year group, and we've put quick links to various resources that you might find helpful.

From March 8th 2021, everyone should be back in school for most of the time, but in case you find yourself having to isolate at home for a bit, remember to check out Teams.

Arriving and leaving, from March 8th 2021

These are the timings for children attending school:

For Years 5 and 6 the school day starts at 8:50 and finishes at 3:20. The gates open at 8:40 and the doors open at 8:45.

For Years 3 and 4, the school day starts at 8:55 and finishes at 3:25. The gates open at 8:50.

Years 4 and 6 must come and go through the gate by the cycle shelter.

Years 3 and 5 must come and go through the gate by the willow tree.


Reading

If you are ever stuck for something to do, you can't go wrong if you pick up a book and read! We've got lists of recommended reading books for every year group. How many of these can you tick off?

Recommended Reads

Virtual Library

Oak Academy have launched a virtual library. Every week they will make available books to read for free online. You don't need to subscribe, just click the link and read. There will also be interviews with children's authors, and recommendations for other books to check out.


BBC Lockdown Learning

In addition to all the resources on BBC Bitesize, there is now a full schedule of programmes to watch live every day on CBBC and available on catch-up on iPlayer.

Each week, you can find a timetable on the BBC website.


Stay Safe at HJS

Remember to follow all the rules to protect everyone from the coronavirus and keep us all safe in school.

Online learning

Microsoft Teams is where to go to find all your lessons, meetings and messages during lockdown.

All children have a username and password. (If they forget it, any member of school staff can look it up for them if they send us a message.)

General messages and timetables for the week will be on the General Channel. Lessons will all be organised on the Subject Channels, and each class has a private Channel where they can post messages to each other and their teachers.

Every class has a live registration meeting every morning, and teachers also have smaller meetings once a week with their Eagles, Kestrels, Ravens and Hawks. In addition, there may be some live lessons or drop-ins, and on Monday, Tuesday and Friday there is a whole school Assembly.

Look after yourself

We want everyone to look after their mental health as well as their physical health, not just during the Covid pandemic, but for all time. Here are 5 tips you can always follow, and a link to our Wellbeing page.

  • Contribute: Help out around the home or in your local community.
  • Relax: Make sure you have some quiet time in your day.
  • Connect: Enjoy conversations and play games with family or friends.
  • Create: Make music or art, invent something and build it!
  • Notice: Look around you, listen, and take notice of what you see and hear and how it makes you feel.

Year group hubs
