(COVID-19) Remote Learning

Protocols:

 

 As soon as you communicate to us that your child is required to self-isolate or stay away from school for COVID related reasons, our remote learning protocols begin. A detailed version of our approach and rationale is shared below but, ultimately, your child's teacher will post Maths and English work on Seesaw for you to access, complete and submit. Teachers will always give feedback on the work. Additionally, broader curriculum learning opportunities can be found below, along with a suggested timetable for completion.

 

 Where whole class bubbles are away from school OR when a teacher is absent but able to teach OR during a period school closure (e.g. January 2021 Lockdown), additional protocols are implemented:

 

1. Daily pre-recorded teaching videos posted onto Seesaw by your child's class teacher. This will include Maths, English and Phonics for younger pupils, and will always focus on New Learning and untaught areas of the national curriculum.

2. Daily Big Maths Slide for the purposes of consolidating core number skills

3. Weekly Geography lessons recorded by the teacher and uploaded onto Seesaw.

4. Daily feedback from the teacher via Seesaw.

4. Fortnightly RE lessons planned and delivered by Mr. Whitlock on Seesaw.

5. Access to a variety of home learning projects.

6. Additional PE resources to include opportunities for indoor and outdoor physical activity.

 

 During lockdown, the government recommendation is that 3 hours of home learning should take place each day.

 

 On Seesaw, the daily maths, Big Maths, English, spellings and phonics lessons, weekly geography lessons and fortnightly RE lessons provide an average of 3 hours of learning per day in KS1; 4 hours and KS2; no more than 3 hours in EYFS, including constructive play that does not rely on digital devices and screen time.

 

 All children should be capable of the above but many will be able to achieve more. Our home learning projects (posted on Seesaw) and the plethora of art, PE and computing learning opportunities below give parents the flexibility to further challenge their children if required. 

 

Reception, year 1 and year 2 children

The best way to help children aged 4 to 7 learn is to:

  • sit with them as they work
  • do active and practical things, rather than trying to make them sit and listen for long periods
  • try to break down the work into shorter periods, based on how long they can concentrate
  • take frequent breaks
  • praise or reward them when they do well

 

Year 3 to 6 children

The best way to help children aged 7 to 11 learn is to:

  • give them support and direction, but encourage them to do work independently too
  • include active and practical things, rather than trying to make them sit and work for long periods
  • try to break down the work into shorter periods, based on how long they can concentrate
  • take frequent breaks
  • praise or reward them when they do well

 

To check if they’re learning try to:

  • ask them questions as they go
  • talk about things they learned

Suggested timetable EYFS

Government guidance recommends:

 

Key Stage 1: 3 hours of remote learning a day.

Key Stage 2: 4 hours of remote learning a day.

Suggested Timetable KS1/KS2
