HOW TO ASK FOR SUPPORT FROM YOUR TEACHER
Thank you Belgrave St. Bartholemew Academy for the support video
WHOLE CLASS ISOLATION / SCHOOL CLOSURE
EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE
Access to remote education will include daily Phonics, Maths and English activities shared on Tapestry.
KEY STAGE 1 & KEY STAGE 2
Children have access to a 1:1 iPad at home. All work will be set through Showbie and teachers will be available to give live feedback during the lessons. Each day children will have access to English, Maths and foundation subjects. To promote structure and healthy minds, class teachers will allow children to access ‘Class Discussion’ on a Friday afternoon - to enable them to catch up with friends in a safe and monitored environment.
ENGAGEMENT & FEEDBACK
Teachers will track the engagement with home learning daily. If the children are continuously not accessing home learning, contact via phone will be made with parents. The class teacher may also want to speak to the children to encourage them to complete their vital home learning.
Live feedback is available in the timetabled lessons - please see our Showbie support video to see how your child can access support in lessons.
This will remain the same as feedback in school and will celebrate the children’s hard work and progress in a lesson
IF YOUR CHILD IS ISOLATING
If your child is self-isolating, please contact the main school office and your iPad can be collected or dropped off by a member of staff. This will enable children to access the same work as children currently in school, if they are well eough to do so.
HOW BEST TO SUPPORT YOUR CHILD
The Government guidance; Help primary children continue their education during coronavirus’ (updated 16th July 2020) states that the best way to help children aged 4 to 7 learn is to:
sit with them as they work;
do active and practical things, rather than trying to make them sit and listen for long periods;
try to break down the work into shorter periods, based on how long they can concentrate;
take frequent breaks;
praise or reward them when they do well.
We recognise that due to the age of our pupils, many activities, including those we provide for in-school learning are of a practical and play based nature and that children often need adult support to complete their tasks.
We know that each child’s needs and each family’s circumstances will be unique. Therefore, the tasks we provide for at-home learning are a suggestion for parents to use.
