Remote Education

Remote Education from September 2020
On this page, you will find plans for the provision of remote education which will ensure that any pupils who need to be educated at home due to self-isolation are given the support they need to continue learning.

Remote education will be of a high quality and will align as closely as possible with in-school provision.

All learning will be conducted using the Class Dojo or Google Classroom platforms. This will allow staff to keep in daily contact in a professional and confidential manner with their class.

Online Resources

Time Tables Rockstars
All children from Year 2 to Year 6 have a login for Times Tables Rockstars. This is a fantastic website that supports children in learning their times tables. Once your child has logged in they should play in Garage mode. This has an automatic training mode which starts with easy times tables and as the children get them correct it adds in more and more times tables. This means that it is pitched at the right level for the children so they're able to practise getting quicker at tables that they know rather than struggling over many that they don't know.

White Rose Maths
We follow White Rose Maths in school and they are producing many home learning materials that run alongside the scheme that we are following. If remote learning is required the teacher will let you know which lesson you'd need to look at with your child.

Letters and Sounds Phonics Videos
We follow Letters and Sounds for teaching phonics in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. Videos have been produced that teach Letters and Sounds phonics lessons.

In the event of remote learning being required the teacher will let you know which video your child should access.

Oak Academy
Oak National Academy has been set up to produce a full curriculum with linked videos that can be used at home. In the event of remote education being required teachers will provide you with links to the relevant Oak Academy lessons to use with your children that match to the curriculum being taught in school.
