Remote Home Learning

Remote Education Contingency Plan for outbreaks (Updated March 2021)

If outbreaks occur, there may be a few children who need to self-isolate, a class or the whole school.  If classes are required to learn from home for a short time, home learning will be put on the school website as it had been previously.  These actions aim to ensure that we have immediate, high-quality remote education for those that can not attend school due to COVID 19.  Learning will be meaningful and ambitious and cover our curriculum that would have been being taught in school.  Home learning will be planned in line with the school curriculum to be well-sequenced with frequent, clear explanations of new content within the Notebooks/Presentations provided.  Home learning may have links in to Oak National Academy videos. 

Home Learning for Individual Children Self isolating

EYFS

If individual children are self-isolating in the EYFS they will be able to access home learning via our school website. All activities will be linked to the learning happening in school and made readily accessible.  If necessary a paper Home Learning Pack will be made available to children struggling to access the learning via the website.

In Nursery, children will be able to watch videos of their teachers reading the story/rhyme of the week.  Additional activities linked to the learning in nursery will be suggested each week, too.

In Reception, children will be directed to the daily Letters and Sounds phonics videos based on the sounds we are learning in school each day.  They will have access to Phonics Play where they can practise blending and segmenting using the new sound of the day.  Each child has their own personal login for Bug Club so can continue to read daily at home.  For Maths, we follow White Rose Maths and this is replicated on the White Rose Home Learning website.  The children will be directed to this website where they can watch a lesson based on the learning taking place in school and complete the suggested activity. All other areas of learning will be covered through activities set by the class teacher or linked to The Oak Academy videos specifically  for Reception, covering all 17 aspects of the EYFS curriculum.

KS1

If individual children are self-isolating in KS1 the class teacher will email work for that day.  All activities will be linked to learning taking place in school.  Completed work will then need to be returned to the class teacher via email for feedback to be given.  Children will be able to access reading texts and comprehensions through Bug Club.  In Maths, they will be sent the relevant White Rose video and companying work. For Literacy, children will be sent work linked to the writing task being completed in class. Children will also be able to complete handwriting from their handwriting pack and skill activities from their CGP books.

For phonics home learning, Year 1 children will be directed to the daily letters and sounds phonics video based on the sounds the class will be learning that day. In Year 2, children will be sent the phonics powerpoint with the sound pattern and activities for the day.

Children will also be sent a foundation subject to complete based on learning completed in class. 

KS2

If individual children are self-isolating they will be able to access home learning via google classroom, every day they will be set literacy, maths and a foundation subject, which is linked to the learning in class, this may be a PowerPoint, website, Oak Academy lesson or BBC bitesize lesson.

Pupils will receive feedback daily from their teacher and will be able to email or message on google classroom if they need support. Teachers will aim to check their emails twice a day: once a lunchtime and once at the end of the day. 

They will also complete Bug club, Times Table Rockstars and Ed Shed. Paper home learning packs will be available from the school office on request.

If outbreaks occur, there may be a few children who need to self-isolate, a class or the whole school.  If classes are required to learn from home for a short time, home learning will be put on google classroom as it had been previously with daily google meet check ins and weekly reading sessions led by the class teacher.  These actions aim to ensure that we have immediate, high-quality remote education for those that cannot attend school due to COVID 19. 

Learning will be meaningful and ambitious and cover our curriculum that would have been being taught in school.  Home learning will be planned in line with the school curriculum to be well-sequenced with frequent, clear explanations of new content within the Notebooks/Presentations provided.  Home learning may have links in to Oak National Academy videos where appropriate. 

On the office receiving information that an individual child is in isolation/ quarantine:

The office will inform the class teacher and direct the parent to the home learning section of the website.

Each day, we would also like children to try to complete:

  1. Reading with books at home using their reading book or through Bug Club for 20 minutes.
  2. Practising times tables using Times Tables Rockstars for 20 minutes.
  3. A keeping fit activity,  it is very important to keep active even if children are inside. There are lots of different activities they could do, for example: Just Dance, Cosmic Yoga on Youtube, Jump Start Jonny videos or you could create an obstacle course or bootcamp at home.
  4. Grammar based learning using Grammar Bug.

Home Learning for a whole class bubble closure 

If a bubble or the whole school has been closed, children will complete the learning set on the class website page or Google classroom. They will complete the learning and return via email in Key Stage 1 and via Google Classroom in Key Stage 2.
