Although we all started back to school in September, Coronavirus has not gone away and is sadly still with us. We now need to cater for times during our children’s learning, when it will be necessary for them to stay at home. This could be if your child needs to shield, self-isolate or we have a partial, local or whole country lockdown.
During the 2020 Summer lockdown, we tried to ensure that our children could still keep learning, even though a lot of them were not in school. The uptake, feedback and work produced by your children was amazing. For this reason, our plan for remote learning – learning which takes place for your children outside the school boundaries – will follow in the same vein.
We will continue to use the online platform Class Dojo App (www.classdojo.com) to communicate with families at home. To further improve this platform, we would like you to make good use of the portfolio section, where you can post activities, etc completed by your child and yourself.
To hopefully engage all of our children, as in the school classroom, we will offer a mixture of learning methods – webpages, paper/worksheets, practical, interactive.
Our learning plans will consist of:
- A weekly timetable – you may or may not wish to follow, depending upon home circumstances
- A weekly plan
- Daily activities
- Links to relevant resources
- Picture examples
- A weekly signed story
- Any other useful information etc
Here are some tips to help you and your children with home learning. You can also access our Remote Learning Policy here.
