Learning online & Remote Learning
During COVID schools needed to adapt their teaching and this meant we went online for the majority of the time. Post COVID there may be occasions in the future when learning has to go online again. The aim for this information to parents is clarity about what will happen and when, should the need arise.
What will be taught at home or online?
As the closure of the school may be an emergency; national or locally, the pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different as we fully swap over to a longer period of time and more precise plans.
We will teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever this is possible with the resources at hand. It is likely we will need to make some adaptations in some subjects. This may be because you do not have certain things at home that we would have in school, for example clay in art, instruments in music. We will also link you to other websites to help you such as the phonics Read Write Inc scheme and the Oaks Academy.
Remote teaching and study time each day
What about the time it will take?
We all need to be aware that working online is not the same as working in a classroom. Our findings from COVID showed that pupils got tired quicker and distracted more when looking at a screen for long periods. We would aim for the following, but please check in with your teacher if you are struggling or SEND for your child is stopping them participating.
Reception classes- 3-4 hours
Infants- 3-4 hours
Juniors- 4-5 hours
Accessing remote education
How do I access online learning for my child?
We use Microsoft Teams to teach remotely. We will share how to log on by a DOJO link from your teacher.
I don't have a lot of computer equipment at home.
We know from COVID that a number of you could not access work and we leant out a number of items. This would be the case again if you needed it.
How will my child be taught?
We will use the following remote teaching approaches:
Engagement and feedback - What do you want me to do?
How will I know how my child is doing?
Feedback can often be whole-class feedback or one-one comments. We will also -
Additional support for pupils with particular needs - How will you support SEND pupils?
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils with tailored learning packs or lessons delivered on an individual basis by key adults.
