Remote learning update 20th Jan 2021

This week, teachers will be presenting your learning as a weekly overview to make it easier for you to follow.

Please read this letter, which shows you what to look out for when you log onto the school’s website. I have also replied to some frequently asked questions on the subject of remote learning.

Remote Learning Update


Education for all at this time – January 2021

Education for children either in school or learning remotely at home requires that children access the same opportunities to learn across all subjects within the curriculum. The Dfe guidance and expectations regarding remote or blending learning (a mixture of home and school based learning is aspirational. I hope you all agree that the delivery of P.E or music lessons for example will be especially challenging !!!
However, please be reassured that the school is exploring every way practicable, to ensure that at this time, all children either learning at home or in school will be covering the same content, and have work set for them that is matched to their ability, that can be marked, with feedback provided from teachers. We are using a variety of tools that over the course of last term, children were becoming familiar with using, through homework tasks on My Maths, Purple Mash and Seesaw. Year group pages on the school’s website have also been updated to reflect the new topics being covered this term with educational resources and sites from which pupils can gain new knowledge and information about a chosen subject.

All children in Year 1 to Year 6 are being set tasks every day to complete. A typical day will include lessons in maths, English and one other area of the curriculum. Children in EYFS will access their learning using Tapestry and Purple Mash. Children will also be expected to complete reading, spellings and times tables practise as on-going learning activities as well as tasks set on MyMaths. Teachers will be monitoring work undertaken and contacting families should children not complete the learning that is being set to further explore the reason for this and investigate what additional help may be required. New content for maths with instructional videos for example and other web-based teaching links are also being used to ensure children are gaining new skills. Please read carefully the ‘Remote Learning Instructions‘ document  to enable your child to find their way around the web links.


Children’s learning schedules will appear in Purple Mash as 2dos. I have asked previously that families experiencing difficulty accessing technologies such as a laptop, approach the school for help. This offer still remains, the school does have some, (but limited) capacity to help with this.


If at any time children are unable to access learning due to difficulties with technologies please email the class teacher as paper-based materials can also be made available.


Please keep your child in a routine, at this time of upheaval. Structure and patterns to the day are so important for us all.
