Top Tips for Home Learning
We have put together some top tips to help support our families with learning from home.
Take a look by clicking here.
Online Learning Platforms
To support children with their home learning, we will use the following online platforms. Your children will spend time with their teachers in school using the platform too.
Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 – Google Classroom
Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 2 – Class Dojo
Contact and Support
Our staff will contact call families who are learning at home regularly to check in and find out how your home learning is going.
If you have any problems with home learning, please contact school.
The Remote Curriculum
The first few days of home learning may look slightly different. When a child or class is sent to learn from home, a paper pack will be sent home which will include learning activities to do with work set online.
We will teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we may need to make some adaptations depending on the units of work in the topics set for each year group.
Teachers will set children one 30 minute reading activity per day.
Teachers will set at least one phonics activity per day, in Early Years, Year 1, 2 and 3.
Teachers should set at least one writing-focused task per day – this may be a specific grammar task or a longer writing task.
Teachers will set at least 60 minutes of Maths learning per day.
Basic Maths, called K.I.R.F.s for 20 minutes
Arithmetic practice for roughly 20 minutes
A main maths task for 20 minutes
Teachers will set at least one foundation subject task a day, including development of vocabulary
How will my children be taught remotely?
We will use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:
Recorded teaching – our teachers will record a lesson and share it using the online platforms
Recorded teaching from other websites such as the Oak National Academy or White Rose Maths
Printed paper packs produced by our teachers
Independent online lessons such as Bug Club
Longer project work or research activities
Engagement and Feedback
We expect children to access their remote learning every school day. We expect parents to ensure their children complete the work set daily by their teachers and to contact school if there are any problems accessing the work.
Our chosen platforms allow us to track and monitor which children are accessing the work. Should a child not be accessing work regularly, school will call the family to investigate and to offer support.
Remote Education for self-isolating pupils
Where individual pupils need to self isolate, the child’s class teacher will set work using the allocated online platform. A paper learning pack will also be sent home within two school days.
