Home Learning during COVID-19

What to expect from remote Home learning:

  • A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
  • We would teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. Teachers will adapt materials and resources to make the work accessible at home.
  • Class 1 would receive daily materials for Phonics and English, Maths and a Foundation Subject which would reflect what would be taught in school. These would be sent out each morning on SeeSaw.
  • Class 2 would receive daily materials for SPaG and English, Maths and a Foundation Subject which would reflect what would be taught in school. These would be sent out each morning via Google Classrooms.
9.00 to 9.30 9.00 to 12.00 Choose activity to start with 1.30 onwards
Well-being check in and daily review Maths Reading English Phonics or SPaG/ Writing Foundation subject e.g. History, Geography Science
Virtually with class teacher Uploaded to SeeSaw or Google Classroom Read a book of your choice Uploaded to SeeSaw or Google Classroom Uploaded to SeeSaw or Google Classroom

 

  • We would offer a daily well-being check in for children at the end of each day. Attendance for sessions will be noted and reported on. Remote learning is an expectation not a choice and must be taken seriously.   If children are not actively taking part in the well-being check ins and completing learning, parents will be contacted.
  • All learning from the teaching staff will be uploaded through either SeeSaw or Google Classroom.  Children will be expected to then upload evidence of their learning. Teachers will indicate their expectations of the children in their instructions. This might be a photo, video or worksheet. Teachers will respond appropriately and provide feedback when appropriate.
  • Children and parents can send messages to communicate with teachers during the day.  If they are having difficulties, teachers will speak to them individually.

Contact school and make us aware of your circumstances. We will endeavour to put support in place to enable all children to have access.

 

Remote education for self-isolating pupils

 Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school. Teachers will communicate with families on an individual basis.
