Remote Learning

15th October 2020

What ‘remote learning’ can I expect from Antingham & Southrepps Primary School?


 This information is to be used as a general guide and parents can expect further details of remote learning for their child as and when it is required. We aim to implement remote learning from your child’s second day of absence. There are 2 general scenarios outlined below; the first scenario where your child is not permitted to attend school and the second outlines the actions in the case of a whole bubble not being permitted to attend school.

The government’s Oak Academy online lessons can be used for remote learning for every year group, covering a wide range of curriculum objectives.    https://www.thenational.academy/

Circumstance

Remote learning

 

SCENARIO A

 

My child (and their siblings if they are also attending Antingham & Southrepps Primary) is absent because they are awaiting test results and our household is required to self-isolate. The rest of their school bubble are attending school and being taught as normal.

 

 

·         Maths lessons White Rose linked work will be either emailed home or sent home via post or from a member of the school community. This will mirror

the maths being covered in the classroom at that time. This will be a combination of videos from white rose maths (the maths scheme used in school), any screens or PPT’s shared in the classroom and worksheets used in the classroom. Answers will be provided for self-marking at home.

·         English tasks for KS2 will follow the sequence of learning for reading, comprehension, writing, spelling, grammar, and punctuation happening in the classroom. The quantity will be dependent on age/stage of your child. Some/all of these will be ‘handed in’ either via scanning the work or sending  photos of work via email to your child’s class teacher as/when asked.

·         Phonics/reading tasks for KS1 to work on the sounds and key words your child will be missing. To read every day with your child for a minimum of 20 minutes. There will be access to Bug Club, our online reading platform.

·         Topic task(s) following the lessons being covered in class that week. This may be the screens from the lesson being sent via email along with resources / worksheets (if appropriate i.e. if the resources required for the lessons are already at home). If the lessons being taught in class are not able to be delivered remotely (e.g. if it requires additional resources such as art resources e.g. clay or pastels, or geography resources e.g maps and atlases) then alternative ‘topic’ learning will be set which may make use of the Government’s ‘Oak Academy’ lessons.

·         EYFS will continue to use Tapestry as a way of recording, setting and observing learning across both Nursery and Reception classes. Tapestry allows both home and school to share learning experiences which make up the learning profile of each individual child.

 

SCENARIO B

 

My child’s whole bubble is not permitted to attend school because they, or another member of their bubble, have tested positive for Covid-19.

 

We enter another ‘lockdown’ with total school closure.

·         Maths lessons  White Rose linked work will be either emailed home or a home learning pack will be posted mirroring the maths being covered in the classroom at that time. This may be a combination of white rose maths videos (the scheme used in school), and resources/worksheets used in the classroom. Answers will be provided for self-marking at home.

·         English tasks sent via email following the sequence of learning happening in the classroom. The quantity will be dependent on age/stage of your child. Some/all of these will be ‘handed in’ either via scanning the work or sending  photos of work via email to your child’s class teacher as/when asked. This will include spelling, grammar and writing. Reading will be set through Bug Club which is our online reading platform. It is expected children continue to read for a minimum of 20 minutes per day to an adult.

·         Video learning will look different depending on the age of the children. This may be story reading sessions with follow on questions and short discussion and/or PSHE and well-being sessions delivered by the class teacher*. These sessions will run throughout the hours of the usual school day and advanced notice will be given to parents via email. The frequency of when your child’s sessions will occur will be communicated by your child’s class teacher via email. All sessions will be set up through your child’s class Teams classroom.

·         Topic task(s) will be sent via email for children to complete and hand in  either via scanning the work or sending photos of work via email to your child’s class teacher as/when asked. This will be lessons your child would have had in class this term which can be most easily adapted to remote learning.

·         1:1 support if your child receives 1:1 support and they are isolating, a more bespoke programme of support will be set up. This may include phone calls / video chats with your child’s 1:1 support. They will usually be expected to still complete the learning set via email too.

·         EYFS will work in the same way as scenario A, where home and school will continue to use Tapestry to record, set and observe learning and experiences for our Nursery and Reception children.

 

* the video learning sessions will not be facilitated by your child’s class teacher if the teacher is the one experiencing Covid symptoms and the reason for the bubble closure. We know our parents will understand that the health and wellbeing of our children, families and staff is paramount.
