Remote Learning Offer
Following research from the Education Endowment Fund and government guidance https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/remote-education-good-practice/remote-education-good-practice, we have designed a remote learning offer that we feel works for our community of learners and teachers.
Learning will consist of a mixture of face-to-face sessions, video lessons and independent tasks and will take into account the age and ability of each learner in order to best offer relevant and purposeful tasks and activities.
We use a range of quality resources approved by the DFE in order to plan and implement daily learning that parents and children can take part in together.
Below is a brief example of the content you will find in daily learning being offered. Provision differs greatly between the younger and older children; with more emphasis on formal and independent learning as the children get older. A range of activities is always offered to ensure children are not always needing to use a device.
Worksheets are not offered, any learning is designed to be completed in provided books or on paper. Learning tasks do not require many resources.
Daily learning sent via Dojo or ILD by 9:00 am every morning. The format will be kept simple and consistent with written and video instructions.
3-4 hours KS1
4-5 hours KS2
A day’s learning may look as follows:
- Daily Reading challenge.
A mixture of sessions that would constitute normal school learning with range of subject content. These will include explanation videos and independent tasks. The curriculum content will include a mixture of Science, History, Geography, Art, DT, RE, PSHE and PE
Each day will incorporate brain breaks, snack time and some movement activities.
Provision for Reception aged children will differ greatly, with more emphasis on exploratory learning and core skills. Daily learning is offered and activities and ideas for learning through children’s interests are constantly communicated through the IDL.
For years 1-6, all teachers to offer a 10 minute whole class Zoom every morning at a specified time to welcome children to their learning, briefly explain the day’s timetable. Any questions can be raised during this time.
Weekly Whole Class Zoom PSHE Session
Whole class are invited to take part in a weekly live PSHE lesson. Links are sent out via Class Dojo.
Class Portfolio and Feedback
Encourage children to share photos of their learning using class Portfolio. Teachers will respond to work when needed.
Class Teachers will offer specific feedback to one piece of writing and maths per child. This may include ways to improve, next steps or a challenge question.
All children will be expected to share examples of work from the breadth of curriculum offered in order to monitor their engagement in learning.
Whole School Challenges
Subject Leaders and SLT will offer weekly challenges to further enhance provision:
English, Maths, Well-being and Mindfulness, Science, Art, PE and Forest School challenges will be set weekly.
Links will be sent through Class Dojo and ILD.
Children on the SEND register will still receive any provision remotely, either through differentiated learning or face-to-face Zoom intervention sessions. These will be communicated and continually monitored by the class teacher and SENDCo.
For families who are not able to access online learning, Learning Packs are compiled by class teachers weekly that will include the range of learning offered online. Packs can be collected from the school by contacting the school office.
