Remote Learning

With lockdown now in place we have actioned our contingency plans for the next few weeks and we wanted to share with you our expectations for this.

The expectations will be slightly different for each year group and these are outlined below. All learning that is shared remotely is following the learning that is happening in the Academy and is available through Tapestry.

We will send out a weekly overview which will be posted on Tapestry on a Friday by 5pm for the following week. We will ensure all resources and videos are ready by 5pm the day before the learning is due to take place to help you plan your day.

When planning remote learning for your child please remember these key things:
• Your child may need support with some of the learning which is normal practice in a classroom.
• Children do not sit for long periods of time listening and are actively engaged in their learning. We remind ourselves that the children should be working harder than the adults so please do encourage them to work independently and to try their best at having a go at tasks.
• Our day is broken up in to different sections. Each with a break between or with an activity that gets children up and moving.
• The learning on the day can be completed in any order. Setting a daily timetable up will support your child in accessing learning and knowing what needs to be completed in the day along with clear breaks and other activities that can be used as a reward for completing work.
• Feedback is important. We will be asking you to submit 1 piece of work a day for feedback where we can offer additional support and guidance and to assess how well a child is moving forward with their learning and be able to support or challenge further. We will, of course, comment/like all learning we receive in. This will be highlighted on the weekly planning document.

For children who are not accessing our Critical Worker and Vulnerable Care there will be daily check ins on Microsoft Teams for your child to access. These are for children to ask questions, share learning and catch up with their teacher for support. Each week there will be a Year Group Assembly with our Academy Head. 

We want the children to try all the activities that we offer so that we can reduce the impact that lockdown may have on children’s education. There is an expectation that each day 1 piece of work is submitted for feedback. This is highlighted on the weekly overview. We also like to see all the other learning that is taking place.

If you have any difficulties and require further support and resources please do contact your child’s year group teachers through Tapestry and they will be more than happy to contact you further.
