Remote Learning at Cadbury Heath

HOME LEARNING PLANS

 

To ensure that your child is able to continue to learn from home in the event of individual isolation or as a result of us having to close a whole bubble at Cadbury Heath, we would like to share our home learning plans with you in advance. We have not had any closures yet but it’s important we are all prepared for any eventuality.

 

If your child is absent because they are awaiting test results or your household is required to self-isolate and the rest of their school bubble are attending school and being taught as normal, please look at your child's Seesaw page for work set by their teacher or contact the office of you require paper copies of work.

 

In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, Cadbury Heath Primary School has developed the following plan. This plan offers remote learning opportunities whilst also acknowledging that some households have limited access to devices and would require hard-copies of work and resources. If you require paper copies of the online learning, please contact the school office to arrange this.

 

This plan will be applied in the following instances:

1. An individual is self-isolating because of a positive test within the household;

2. A group of children are self-isolating because of a case of COVID19 in the bubble;

3. A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of COVID19

The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document Guidance for Full Opening of Schools.

 

 

Software and online learning platforms

 

Within all plans, teachers will set appropriate work in-line with our current curriculum, primarily supplemented by a range of resources provided by Oak Academy, White Rose Maths and TTRS/ Numbots.

Children will remain in contact with their Class teacher through Seesaw and this is how work will be set and feedback from teachers given to children.  We also ask that parents ensure children read daily.

 

Oak Academy

 

Oak Academy has been selected to support remote learning for a number of reasons. The Oak Academy lessons encourage the use of retrieval practice, explicit teaching with high quality modelling, and the use of deliberate practice. The online lessons are free to all and offer a recorded taught session so that the children can access physical teaching from a teacher and then access work relating to that lesson within the same website. There are also hundreds of lessons specifically aimed at children with SEND needs and requiring additional support.  You will be signposted by your childs class teacher to the lessons you should access.

 

Phonics – KS1/ Year 3 children

 

As a school we follow letters and sounds.  In the event we need to set phonics lessons for your child we will use the lessons provided by Letters and Sounds for Home and school that can be found here:  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCP_FbjYUP_UtldV2K_-niWw

The teacher will signpost you on your child’s seesaw page to the video that is matched to their learning in school.

 

White Rose Maths

 

White Rose Maths resources will be used as they are matched to our current maths curriculum model. Children are very used to seeing these resources.

Numbots and TT Rockstars will all be utilised to support the acquisition and retention of basic core skills.

 

Expectations

In the event of any form of isolation and loss of learning caused by COVID19, parents must understand that engagement in home learning is strongly encouraged. However, if children themselves are too ill to attend then they should not be expected to engage in home learning.

All children should have log ins for Seesaw, TTRS and Numbots.  If you need another copy of your child’s log in for any of the platforms, then please contact the office in the first instance who will organise for the information to be delivered to you.

The initial response to any isolation will be to provide children with home learning materials. In the case of whole cohort isolation, resources will be uploaded to Seesaw and children whose parents have requested paper copies will have packs delivered.  Learning will be provided daily to enable children who are self-isolating to have work that matches what their peers are learning in school.

 

 

Suggested timetable

 

The timetable is designed to work alongside our school timetable, but some learning activities might be completed more quickly, or your child may choose to spend a little longer on them.  They are a guide only, and you need to ensure that your child’s routine for learning does not add additional stress to the household.  We appreciate if you are having to self-isolate, it is incredibly challenging for families, and some parents may also be trying to work from home.  Whilst older children should generally be able to work more independently, for younger pupils this is trickier and adult support is likely to be required.

If your child is in EYFS, Year 1 or Year 2 we will be uploading 5 lessons a day: phonics, English, reading, maths and another curriculum subject.

If your child is in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6, we will be uploading 4 longer lessons a day: English, reading, maths and another curriculum subject.

It is really important that your child continues to learn during this pandemic and your support with these bubble closure plans is greatly appreciated. We are here to support you in any way we can – if you have any concerns or issues, please do not hesitate to contact the school.  

 

We are of course hopeful there will be limited need for this but it’s important we are prepared for any such event.

 

Thank you all as ever for your ongoing support of our school.
