Remote Learning Plan
We have put together a remote learning package on the occasion of individual children or groups of children needing to isolate. There will be a slightly different approach depending on circumstances for each child. This is due to the fact that the class teacher will only be available throughout the school day if the whole class bubble is self-isolating.
During lockdown, teachers posted class activities on the school website. If remote learning if needed again this will continue, however we also feel it would be of benefit to pupils if they were able to share their work with their teachers. Consequently, we have decided to use the Seesaw App to enable this sharing of work. Pupils will be able to send as little or as much of their work to their teacher while their teacher will be able to review and comment on it.
What is Seesaw?
Seesaw is an app that allows teachers to assign learning activities to children. It also allows children the opportunity to share their learning with their teacher for feedback and acknowledgement.
How will this be set up?
How will learning activities be shared?
How will children share their completed work?
Will children need a laptop?
When can my child expect feedback from their teacher?
What if I’m having difficulty with the app?
What if my child can only complete some activities and doesn’t get to do all the work each day?
Scenario 1: Individual children across school need to self-isolate
If an individual child is self-isolating the class teacher will email work home to complete. Obviously, this would only be when a child is well enough to do so. This will include online lessons from White Rose Maths and Oak Academy which will be matched to what the class are doing in school. Staff have spent time mapping these lessons to the curriculum that is to be taught in class. Teachers will make contact either by phone or by email and work can be emailed to teachers for feedback. They will offer as much support to these children as possible during the self-isolation period but won’t be available throughout the school day. If another member of staff is available to answer questions, they will do, but this may not always be possible.
Scenario 2: A Whole Class bubble need to self-isolate.
If a whole class bubble is self-isolating, then the classteacher will use Seesaw to provide a learning plan. This will include a range independent work, White Rose Maths sessions and Oak Academy online lessons. The class teacher will also be available throughout school hours to answer questions from the children to aid their learning via email or SeeSaw. If the classteacher is off sick during this time Mrs Glynn and other members of the Senior Leadership Team will ensure that home learning is not compromised.
