Blended Learning Offer - Remote Home Learning
We would like to share with you our blended learning offer and remote learning policy should your child need to be learning at home due to any Covid related absences; awaiting a test, socially isolating or having to participate in a pod lockdown. We would obviously hope that such an event will not occur, however we need to prepare for all eventualities.
Early Years and Key Stage 1 children (Nursery, Reception, Years 1 and 2) will have access to learning via Tapestry.
Key Stage 2 children (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) will use Google Classroom.
Pupils have access to the Wonde dashboard/Google Classroom via the CHILD LOGIN button on the homepage and can freely use TTRockstars, Sumdog and other apps. Other websites and apps that we will be using and are useful for you are listed further down the page-

If you cannot access the apps or website, adapt your activities. This is a guide to help you provide a week’s education, it is flexible, and you can change it.
Helpful pointers for home educating
Motivation is key and regular sessions each day will help with this. If your child feels saturated, try a different task. Reward the effort made with a star (stuck or hand-drawn) at the end of the work.
Create a daily timetable, design it with your children. Factor in fun times for all. Learning time needs to have a different feel to playtime.
Read the task in advance of your child so you have any idea of what they need to do. If you have several children can the older children support the younger ones? Can you all do the same activity at times (art, music, science?), to avoid your attention being pulled in many ways.
Make sure there is a balance to the day, ensuring plenty of exercise. Have a mixture of handwritten and online tasks.
If your child is struggling, reassure them. We often use the phrase, “You haven’t got it yet but one day you will”.
And BREATHE! You've totally got this...
