Update on Remote Learning
From September 2021, following government guidelines, we will be providing remote learning for those children who are absent from school due to reasons linking to COVID-19.
High quality remote learning will be provided on the following learning platforms. For which all pupils have their log in. If these have been misplaced, please contact the school office.
KS1- DB Primary
KS2- Google Classroom
The remote education will be equivalent in length of time to the core teaching that pupils would receive in school; this includes time for the teaching, and completion of tasks. As a minimum, we will provide:
· Key Stage 1- 3 hours daily
· Key Stage 2- 4 hours daily
We will ensure:
Ø Lessons link to the year group’s curriculum
Ø There will be clarity for pupils and parents/carers
Ø That all pupils will have access to a laptop to allow children to access their learning
Ø Teaching and learning activities will take in to consideration any special educational needs
We will monitor whether pupils are engaging with the remote learning, and work with families to identify solutions where engagement is a concern. If the cause for concern continues, we will make a welfare visit to your home. Staff recognise that both supporting as an adult, and completing work as a pupil, can be a challenge and will consider providing printed resources to overcome any barriers presented by the digital access.
Collins have made their Big Cat books available to parents along with the resource activities which accompany them:
#ThisIsPE Yorkshire Sport Foundation and leading national organisations, including afPE, have been working with physical educators from across the country to support parents to teach PE at home.
Short two-minute videos are being posted that show parents (and teachers) free, fun and easy to follow PE activities for the whole family to enjoy together.
Each #ThisIsPE video will focus on a different aspect of the National Curriculum. The videos, delivered by PE teachers, will help children and young people to continue their skill development in PE during this period when we are having to stay at home, to save lives.
Videos will be posted at 1pm on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You don’t need to be in PE kit and you don’t need sports equipment. All of the videos will use things that you can find around the home.
Kidzone – On here children can play games, create posters/leaflets/stories, colour in, and do a set plan of exercises to videos.
