Useful Links for Home Learning

Home Learning

At Burrsville Infant Academy we encourage home learning in a variety of ways. We invest in several learning websites available on tablets, phones and computers at home. Each child will have an individual, secure login to the website. If you do not have your login, please speak to your class teacher or during closure email admin@burrsvilleinfantacademy.org where this will be forwarded to our Computing Support member of staff. 


IMPORTANT UPDATE - 30.03.20 A lot of children are now using the app Houseparty. There are concerns about a feature where you can 'lock' people in a room, possibly with an unknown contact - unless you change your privacy settings.' If your child/children are using this App, please find information and guidance by clicking on the link - https://www.internetmatters.org/blog/2019/12/24/what-is-the-houseparty-app-what-parents-need-to-know/

Below are links to the weekly learning over-views.  These will be updated weekly by your class teachers. 


EYFS    - Sight words

Hi parents,
Some of you have requested the next sets of sight words. Here are the set 1 sight words for you to work through. Remember, your child needs to read it completely independently and accurately and read the words in a random order. They need to read each word at least three times and you should revisit the previously learnt words regularly.
If your child is on set 2 sight words, we do not have an electronic copy of these. However, they are taken from the 'KS1 high frequency words' and there are lots of copies of these for you to download on Twinkl. If your child is secure reading words, please practise writing them next. I hope this helps,


Miss Pargin.
