As we embark on a new academic year like no other, we are keen to ensure all pupils have access to weekly sequences of lessons from home, to learn remotely should they need to. The pdf document below sets out our Blended Learning Offer (September 2020).This document outlines the planned approach and provision for our pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, in the event of:
Should these situations occur, please find below documents setting out Year 5's sequence of lessons and activities in each of English and Maths for the relevant week. As each class is rotating, for resourcing purposes, when foundation subject blocks (history, geography, art etc) are taught, please Dojo your class teacher in the event of an absence, and he/she will provide the wider curriculum lessons and project for that week – this may be in the form of a PDF, or a link to relevant lessons on Oak National Academy. In the event of a whole school closure/ partial closure, foundation subject resources will also be saved below.
We would ask that those pupils who are isolating, but feel well enough, engage each day with the lesson activities provided, both to progress their learning, and to assist their return to class as, when they return, they will have tried the lessons that they would usually have missed out on if absent.
We have tried to keep the formatting of the sequences as user-friendly as possible, recognising that these resources are usually delivered by qualified staff, and complemented with a range of face-to-face teaching techniques and practical resources.
In addition, all pupils continue to have access to the online resources of Spelling Shed, Tackling Tables and TT Rock Stars, and Accelerated Reader.
Finally, class teachers continue to be contactable via the office or Class Dojo during working hours as well. However, please be aware that between 9am-3:30pm, much of this time will be teaching and away from their emails/ Dojo, so please do telephone the school if urgent.
