We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:
- Daily live teaching will take place via zoom in groups of up to 15 for 30 minutes if a whole cohort is accessing remote learning. These sessions introduce the tasks/assignments for the day and teach any relevant skills. Pupils then complete these independently over the day and submit by email or on Purplemash. This teaching time also allows teachers to assess pupils understanding and knowledge retained to inform their planning.
- Curriculum aligned e-book platforms (linked to RWI group level) can be accessed via the phonics timetable emailed to parents/carers.
- Pupils receive daily RWI online lesson links (recorded) aligned to their RWI stage, the phonics timetable will be emailed out to parents/carers.
- Teachers share relevant links from Oak National Academy, BBC etc. that link to and support the intended learning.
- Must Do tasks are set on Purplemash, this platform also allows direct feedback on completed work notch written and voice recording.
- Class teachers may film additional videos, for example: story time videos, extra phonics and reading videos, parent support videos and curriculum linked videos. These will either be added to the school Facebook page and emailed to parents/carers or links emailed directly to parents/carers.
Remote education for individual pupils
Where individual pupils need to access remote education due to self-isolation etc. and the majority of their peers remain in school, how remote education is provided will likely to differ form the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenge of teaching pupils both at home and in school.
If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?
- Only in there will be no class zoom.
- No recorded videos of teachers.
- Teachers will check in with parents/carers at least twice in a week.
- Teachers will feed back on work.
- Parents/carers' expectations are similar to above.
- All other adaptions for remote learning will continue, e.g. remote learning adapted timetable, online links and differentiated phonic access.
