During the Term 3 lockdown, the children will have the following provision:
Timetables will be sent out weekly over email and Seesaw outlining the learning and Zoom codes for each days learning.
During the current lockdown, Seesaw will be used to share home learning for the children. The children will be set English, maths and reading activities daily as well as some additional non-core learning. Staff will provide instructions and a way for the children to record their learning through this platform. The children will be able to submit their work through writing, pictures, videos or voice clips for their teacher to review. The child's teacher will then approve the work and may leave a comment. Each child has an individual log in which have been emailed to parents. If you are missing this log in, please contact the school office via SchoolComms or email and someone will then resend your log in to you. If your log in is not working, please check you have removed the spaces between the codes before emailing.
If you are using the app, please ensure you download 'Seesaw Class' rather than 'Seesaw Family'
If your children are sharing a device between them, they will need to log out each time they have finished so ensure that they keep their code somewhere safe.
Mrs Fox-Gaven has been busy recording some video clips to help our children access Seesaw. Have a watch for some top tips in how to help you to record your learning.
EYFS will use tapestry to receive remote learning from from their teachers. The children will be able to respond to these activities at home on paper or with objects in your house. You can then upload a photo/video onto tapestry. The teaching team will also upload videos of stories and other activities. There will also be a weekly catch up Zoom that your children can participate in. Please ensure if you have a child in Nursery or Reception, you have visited Tapestry to see what has been set. If you are having issues logging on, please contact us via Schoolcomms or firstname.lastname@example.org and mark your message FAO EYFS team.
Each day, the children will have access to 2 live lessons via Zoom. Please see the document below around our Zoom rules for keeping the children safe and ensuring they get the most out of these sessions.
Mental Health Support
If you are finding life at home during school closures tough or if you are struggling with remote learning message your teacher on Seesaw and they can help explore what will help. They will arrange a time to call you to have a chat about things if you are happy to do that.
Make sure you share how you are feeling with the grown ups at home too as they may be able to help you too.
Below you will find some websites that may help too. Click on the links to find out more.
As a school, we subscribe to TTRockstars and Numbots. Your child will have a unique log in which will work on both of these sites. Numbots is aimed more so at Key Stage One children with TT Rockstars being more suited to KS2 children. If your child has lost their log in, please contact Miss Goodman or Mrs Billsberry via SchoolComms or email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
