Remote Learning Offer
On these pages you will find our remote learning offer. We have 2-4 live (or recorded) lessons daily including phonics, reading, writing and maths.
In addition to the weekly timetables we offer Zoom 1:1 sessions with children, Zoom parental catch up calls, phone calls of support, private class facebook pages to upload work to and for the class teacher to comment upon, email access for parents to send in work completed.
We send resource packs home and review these every two weeks.
In addition to this there is a federation timetable of live lesson offerings, recorded lessons for music and RE, live story times, dance sessions, PE lessons and collective worship.
We include links to TV programmes for learning, youtube channels and have our very own forest school youtube channel.
The teaching is planned around our curriculum offer or focuses on a book a week. It focuses on core skills and offers opportunities to learn and investigate a breadth of subjects.
To Our Amazing Children, Parents and Carers,
Here we are again! Please find below links to your home learning. In each class section you will find your activities and the times for your zoom lessons. There are also some fun activities and some other zoom sessions you may wish to join over the coming weeks. We understand that home learning can be tricky for all of you so we are trying to make it as straight forward, fun and as user friendly as we can.
The very good news is that over Christmas our roof was temporarily repaired so we can start using the Owl classroom again when you do all return to school. The not so good news is that this week was supposed to be our Values week and as we are not all in school to enjoy it together we have decided to postpone it to later in the year.
We were going to launch our values week by asking you all to think about the value of Friendship and create your own Friendship board using the cardboard we asked you to save before Christmas. We would still like you to do this and that is your challenge for today (5.1.21). Please join us at 9.15am (zoom link sent via parentmail) where we will talk about this a little bit more and please click on the icon below for some ideas of what you could include on your friendship board. You can do as much or little as is right for you. All we ask, as always is that you try to BE THE BEST THAT YOU CAN BE.
We hope you have lots of fun and we can't wait to see them!
Warm wishes from
Mrs Kipling, Mrs Beardshaw, Mrs Picton and the Sherington Team
