Home Learning Resources

19 Mar 2020

Self Isolating or Emergency Closure General Instructions.

We are living through unprecedented and extra-ordinary times. Ibstock Community College will aim to continue the learning of children until we return to normality.

We are still waitng for guidance from the govenrnment about which students will be attending school, however this is an outline of the home learning work which is provided for all students.

  • The central point for all work is Foldr/Home Learning Resources. You can log in through the college website . There is a range of activities for your child to complete – the instructions are on Foldr but not all tasks are based on a computer. You might wish to equip yourself with basic stationery to support your child’s learning.
  • We are developing our home learning resources continuously and we expect to be adding new resources over time so please check subject areas regularly if the school closure is extended.
  • Primarily, your child will need their Foldr Login – it is their usual school computer login and they use it regularly.  Go to the Home Learning Resources folder. Your child will then see each subject area with a series of learning activities which may require further log ins:

MyMaths login – these should be in your child’s planner but please check.  Your child can ask their Maths teacher if they are not sure.

The generic login is: Ibstock  
The generic password is: cuboid

English – Read Theory – Students have an individual log in. This is in their planners as they use in lessons from time to time.
French – Active Learn –

Username: ibs[first initial] [surname] i.e. ibsjmason
Password Y7: Ibstock19
Password Y8&9: Ibstock18

  • If you need to contact the college about any aspect of this work please email Please be aware this inbox may not be regularly monitored. 
  • You should be able to access the work on a PC, via a tablet or phone. The majority of resources will be in PDF format which is compatible with all phones and tablets. If your child does not have access to a computer or a phone, then we will have paper copies of a range of resources for you to collect.
  • Many of the activities require children to self-test and to use paper, pen or coloured pencils.  We suggest that your child follows the structure of a school day in order to organise their school work. Use your child's current timetable as a guide.

For Example:

Period 1 (9 – 10 am)

Maths – log on to Foldr for instructions and complete the work set. This may be on myMaths

Period 2 (10 – 11am)

Physical Education – get some fresh air, play in the garden, physical activity, exercise routine on Youtube, exercise DVDs or yoga, for example
