Remote Learning

Resources for pupils and parents

We are adding links to useful websites so that you can continue learning at home.

Remote Learning

Welcome to our online, remote learning information pages. Please see the remote Learning Policy and the timetable for our current online, remote learning for Key Stage 1/EYFS and Key Stage 2.

The approach we are taking is a combination of live sessions for some face-to-face contact with the teachers and a variety of lessons from nationally promoted and curriculum matched resources including the Oak Academy, White Rose Maths and Rising Stars.

The focus every day is on the core subjects, Maths and English. We also provide some activities and suggestions for other curricular areas including science, RE, PHSE and PE. We have provided links to reputable PE and physical activities such as Forest Green Rovers and Joe Wicks.
The work and activities are provided through our G Suite facility and all pupils have been provided with login details.

We sincerely hope the children and their parents find the work and activities engaging and helpful.
For many of the tasks the children can return work by using the “turn in” facility and the teachers can then view and respond with encouragement and ideas about ways to improve and next steps.

It is important to understand that lessons in core subjects are sequential and the children need to engage in the lessons accordingly. Some of the other activities can be accessed as one- off lessons and can be viewed and done out of sequence if that is helpful.

All parents and families were surveyed in November regarding availability of devices and internet connections so we have a very good understanding of what pupils have available to them at home. Parents and pupils are also able to keep in contact via class emails and through the school office admin. Teachers are also working to help parents and pupils who may encounter technical issues and have other questions and queries.
This is a relatively new way of working for many so well done to all for their work so far and keep up the good work!

The timetables for remote, online work will be reviewed and updated so please make sure you check in from time to time.

We may be separated by miles but we are together as a school community!

Share a Story

World Book Day has a Share a Story campaign, to highlight how important it is for parents to read to their children (of all ages) every day for at least 10 minutes.

Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator for success in life, more than family circumstances, educational background, or income. But it’s in decline. Our Share a Story campaign aims to turn the tide. Sharing stories together – anywhere, anytime – for just ten minutes a day has long-lasting effects on a child’s future and being read to is critical in igniting enthusiasm for reading, and creating lifelong readers. For this year’s World Book Day, some of the most influential people in the country – high-profile ambassadors, diverse authors, politicians, and prominent champions – are coming together to ask the nation to ‘Share a Story’ and help change our children’s future”.

Have a look on the World Book Day website www.worldbookday.com for more inspiration and some great recommended reading lists.
