Blended Learning Offer - Remote Home Learning
We would like to share with you our current blended learning offer and remote learning policy should your child need to be learning at home due to awaiting a test, socially isolating or having to participate in a pod lockdown. We would obviously hope that such an event will not occur, however we need to prepare for all eventualities.
Please read the attached important documents which outline what we offer and what is expected.
Our Early Years and Key Stage 1 children (Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 2) will have access to learning via Tapestry.
Our Key Stage 2 children (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) will use Google Classroom.
Pupils have access to the Wonde dashboard/Google Classroom via the CHILD LOGIN button on the homepage and can freely use Timestables Rockstars, Sumdog and other apps.
Please make sure whichever device your child is on; internet safety is key. Do not leave your child unattended on the internet for long periods and aim to engage with the activities that they are doing. Please visit the Aspire eSafety page below for further guidance.
Helpful pointers for home educating
Motivation is key and regular sessions each day will help with this. If your child feels saturated, try a different task. Reward the effort made with a star (stuck or hand-drawn) at the end of the work.
Create a daily timetable, design it with your children. Factor in fun times for all. Learning time needs to have a different feel to playtime.
Read the task in advance of your child so you have any idea of what they need to do. If you have several children can the older children support the younger ones? Can you all do the same activity at times (art, music, science?), to avoid your attention being pulled in many ways.
Make sure there is a balance to the day, ensuring plenty of exercise. Have a mixture of handwritten and online tasks.
If your child is struggling, reassure them. We often use the phrase, “You haven’t got it yet but one day you will”.
And BREATHE! You've totally got this...
