Remote Education - Autumn Term 2020

In the event of a a class, group or small number of pupils needing to self-isolate, or if there is a local lockdown requiring pupils to remain at home, we have prepared a strong contingency plan for remote education provision.

We will be improving this provision further across this first half term (Autumn 2020) with the introduction of Google Classroom

 

Google Classroom is a preferable alternative to making up packs of worksheets for several reasons:

  • the class teacher can view the completed work, acknowledge it and respond to it;
  • the work set can include videos, pictures, sound clips, which will make the work more interesting
  • work can be set on an ongoing basis;pupils can direct questions to the class teacher. 

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

In Early Years, the focus for the children’s learning is different to other year groups, therefore we will be supporting this using a different process.

Each week activities will be uploaded to the EYFS class pages of this website with ideas for Literacy, Maths, Creative/Physical Development and Understanding the World. An email will be sent out to you when these activities are available to view.

We ask that you use these activities to support your child’s home learning and if you wish, you could take photos of these or keep a scrapbook of your favourites to share when your child returns to school..

It is really vital that the children are hearing stories EVERY day. If they have a reading book, please also take 5 minutes a day to hear them read this.
