If your child's class or year group bubble has to be closed then class teachers will set their work on Teams ClassroomTeams Classroom on a daily basis for Years 1-6, on Tapestry for Year FS and on Seesaw for Rainbow Room.
The lessons and activities that they set will follow daily class timetables. Children in all year groups will also be expected to complete their daily reading. Thank you for supporting your child with their learning at home.
HOME LEARNING WHILST SELF-ISOLATING
For pupils in all year groups, teachers have set up your child's home learning on Teams Classroom (login details are in children's reading records but please email@example.com if you cannot find it).
The expectation is that your child completes Day 1 of the work set on their first day of quarantine and so on. Children are also expected to do at least 10 minutes of reading a day and record this in their reading record. Parents and pupils are responsible for completing the work set and submitting it through Teams Classroom on a daily basis.
Your child can access Teams Classroom on a laptop or ipad.
If your child does not have access to a device in the family home and you require a paper copy of work set, please contact the school office to arrange delivery or collection.
If your child competes their work on paper then it must be handed into their teacher on their first day back at school.
Classroom standard behaviour is expected from pupils whilst using Teams Classroom. This includes general conduct and the use of appropriate verbal or written language. All children in Key Stage 2 should not be using the Teams chat as a personal chat room. Teams must be thought of as a classroom environment. All children should follow the ICT Code of Conduct and parents should monitor their online activity to ensure they are working safely.
If you have any difficulties with your child's remote learning whilst you are self-isolating, please contact:
Foundation stage children: firstname.lastname@example.org
Year 1 and Year 2: email@example.com
Year 3 and Year 4: firstname.lastname@example.org
Year 5 and Year 6: email@example.com
We look forward to seeing your child at school again very soon.
