Home Learning due to Covid 19

Date: 30th Sep 2020 @ 2:25pm

Dear Parent/Carer,

Thank you very much to those parents/ carers who have completed the access to computers survey. If you haven't already done this, please could you do it as soon as possible. 


A remote learning system is in place in the event that another bubble collapses. Nursery have been using Tapestry this week whilst self-isolating and parental feedback would imply that this is going well. 

When a bubble collapses, the focus for teaching staff must be on communicating with families to ensure that children are progressing as they should in their learning. This is clearly stated in guidance from the government. 

We plan to use Tapestry for all year groups. This will form the basis for two-way communication with parents/carers who will be expected to upload photos of their children's learning. 

Nursery will send out a list of suggested practical activities covering all areas of learning. There will also be 3 teacher led activities focusing on language development e.g. story time, singing and listening games. 

Reception will be sending a list of suggested practical activities to complete throughout the week. These will cover basic maths, writing and creative skills. We will send an online phonics and maths session Monday to Thursday. 

We are expecting to have three 10-15 minutes teacher led sessions per day online in Y1 and Y2. These will cover core skills and be supplemented by other materials. These will not be live sessions but can be done at any time during the day to suit your circumstances. These sessions will come from a range of sources. 

We know that this situation is not ideal but we are confident that if we work together then we can ensure the continued progress of the children.
