Remote Learning Provision for asymptomatic children
Where a child is unable to attend school due to Covid-19, though well enough to work (asymptomatic), teachers will teach and set work for the pupils, streaming via their Google classroom, including tasks to complete at home in line with current lessons taught in school.
If your child is unwell, they need to rest and recover and remote learning is not for them. Please inform the school of your child’s absence in all cases. If your child has some other infection or illness remote learning does not apply as they need to rest and get better.
We will ensure that any work set remotely, reflects our broad and ambitious curriculum at Wallace Fields Juniors. There will be a range of online and offline resources, considering the needs of SEND and vulnerable families who may find this difficult to access; reasonable adjustments and arrangements will be made.
Remotely learning children register at 8.50am- they may need to be a little earlier to check their Chromebook or computer is functioning properly and they are logged in. The children will join the usual class assembly and then be involved online for the maths and English lessons in the morning.
When the afternoon lessons are teacher led and in the classroom, the lessons are streamed live and children will follow and be interactive online. We make some adaptations in some subjects. For example, in those subjects with practical elements such as music, science, design and technology or PE and games, we have adapted the remote curriculum to include more research-based tasks when it is not possible for pupils to engage directly (as they are not in the classroom).
The wellbeing of our pupils will be our highest priority and so the class teacher will usually speak directly to remote pupils after each break to check all is going well.
Full School Closure / Year Group Bubbles
During instances of full school closure or year group ‘bubbles’ self-isolating, all pupils are taught a timetable of ‘live’ lessons remotely and set videos (looms) via Google Classroom, along with self-led tasks, pre-recorded material, online resources and assignments.
Following the first day of remote education, your child be taught the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. The learning will continue in line with the curriculum sequence and expectations in the same way that it would within the classroom. Children’s knowledge and skills built up incrementally so that they can then complete set tasks and assignments via Google Classroom. This is the case for most subjects in all classes.
The school has invested in an online bank of reading books that fit in with our reader scheme; this will allow children to be able to access a wide range of texts at home and complete reading expectations. The class reader is read every day for 12–15 minutes during the day and this will be streamed live. With the child taking similar breaks to the usual day children will complete a minimum of 4 hours a day of school tasks and activities.
