Covid 19 Home Learning & Family Support Resources
During absence related to COVID-19 isolation (for positive cases) or for more general lockdown, children who are at home are requested to access Home Learning through their class Google Classroom page. All children in Years 1 to 4 received individual Google email addresses and passwords last year. f you need assistance with logging on or with re-setting a passord, please email email@example.com.
Each day the teacher creates a post on the page with the learning for the day. The learning mirrors what is being taught in school as closely as possible.
The learning is in the form of formal lessons and exploratory activities. We are currently developing video lesson introductions where appropriate, using resources such as Oak Academy, White Rose, Hamilton Trust and BBC resources, as well as making our own clips and adding voice overs to powerpoints. The teacher will adjust Home Learning Plans for individual children where needed.
We are very aware that all families have different situations and pressures to deal with such as looking after older and younger siblings and/or parents’ own work commitments. There may also be different pressures on different days and children may be able to engage in more Home Learning on one day and less on another. There is therefore not a fixed timetable for the day from us. We would recommend that you make a timetable for your child that suits your family and can be altered as needed.
When your child has completed any work or carried out an activity please photograph it and upload it to their Google Class page. The teacher will respond and give feedback as soon as possible.
During a general lockdown, Teachers may also call to talk to parents and children. These calls are virtual face to face calls. This way parents, children and teachers can talk about well-being and work and teachers can give encouragement and help and support. The invitations to the calls go to parents by email We may also have face to face group chats so that children can communicate with each other more and have a sense of belonging.
The school is also happy to support pupils by providing paper packs that can be collected from school or dropped off at home. Let us know if you would like a paper pack for your child.
Thank you for your support and feedback.
