Distance Learning

Introduction to Distance Learning

 

Due to the government’s decision to close schools from Friday, we have prepared daily activities for the children to complete to make sure their learning doesn't suffer. A lot of this is consolidating previous learning so that the children can complete it with a fair amount of independence.

 

The first thing your child must do every day is to log on to 'I am learning' by 10 am and send a message to their class teacher, saying something simple like: 'Good Morning' or 'Hello Mr/Mrs ….'. Your child should know how to do this, but if you need help see the explanation below. Your child can also use this facility to contact the teacher with any questions about the work, however they may not receive an instant reply.

 

Every day a teacher from the year group will set the daily tasks to be completed. These will include a variety of tasks, such as workbooks, text book work, on-line activities and research projects. Some year groups may have sent exercise books home so when work is done in those, please ensure that your child completes the work using the school presentation policy (this can be found in the 'About us - curriculum' section on the website).

 

The work that your child does each day will then be self-marked using their green pen. Answers will be put on the website the following day.

 

We are aware that this is a difficult time for everybody and we appreciate your continuing support.

PLEASE NOTE: we have now added suggested timings onto our daily tasks for you to follow if it helps you to organise your day. You do not have to follow these times – talk to an adult at home to decide what will work best for you. We understand that you may need to share computers with siblings. If you prefer, you might like to do the activities in an order that suits you so we have added in brackets an estimated length of time you could spend on each task.
