National Home-based Learning

Dear Parent/Guardian,

From April 2020, all MOE schools will implement one day of Home-Based Learning (HBL) a week. This will help us prepare for an extended period of HBL should the need arise, so that our students can continue with their learning. Our school will be conducting HBL on Wednesdays, starting from Wednesday, 1 April 2020. In the event that the day of HBL falls on a public holiday, your child/ward will not need to make up for HBL on another day. Classroom lessons will still proceed as usual on the other days of the week.

Your child/ward will be provided with instructions on how to access their HBL materials by his/her teachers. The school will use the Singapore Student Learning Space (SLS) as a key platform to support our school in our HBL measures. All students and teachers will participate in HBL at the following timings:

 

Levels

HBL Time

Primary 1 & Primary 2

10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.

Primary 3 & Primary 4

9.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.

Primary 5 & Primary 6

8.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m.

 

The staggered timing is planned in consideration for families with more than one child requiring the use of digital devices. If your child/ward requires additional support for HBL such as access to digital devices or internet connection, please alert his/her form teacher, who will be able to advise on alternative arrangements.

The learning activities will be designed to allow students to complete them independently.  We encourage you to support your child/ward by providing a conducive environment at home.

You could do this by:

  • Working out a daily schedule/routine with your child/ward and guiding your child/ward in setting goals and scheduling tasks. For further tips on guiding your child/ward in setting goals, refer to the Resilience Boosters at https://go.gov.sg/selresforparents.
  • Establishing an agreement with your child/ward on managing screen time. We will assign a maximum of 2 hours of online learning every day. For further tips and guides on reinforcing your child’s/ward’s cyber wellness, please refer to: https://ictconnection.moe.edu.sg/cyber-wellness/for-parents.
  • Encouraging your child/ward to maintain an optimistic and positive outlook while accepting the changes and emotions that he/she has had to face as part of going through HBL.

Please refer to a Parent Kit available at bit.ly/PLVPSHBL to guide parents on how you can complement the school’s HBL efforts and ensure learning continues to take place at home on HBL days. Also, please refer to the following link for support on using Zoom, https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206618765-Zoom-Video-Tutorials, focusing on Join a Meeting.  

On the day of HBL, please ensure that your child/ward stays at home and continues to observe good hygiene practices such as washing their hands frequently with soap. If he/she feels unwell, please seek medical attention promptly and inform his/her form teacher if he/she displays any fever or flu-like symptoms.

MOE is monitoring the situation closely and we will update you should there be any changes to the precautionary measures that we are implementing. We urge parents to rely on official sources of information and not to circulate any unconfirmed information. If you have any further queries, please contact the Vice-Principal, Ms Saadiah Wylde at 6508 7300.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Do take good care and stay safe and healthy!
