We have extensive plans for the provision of remote education where needed and to ensure that the small number of children that need to be educated at home, for example, due to shielding or self-isolation, are given the support they need to continue learning and make good progress. We will continue to provide an ambitious and broad curriculum in all subjects. We will ensure that the remote education will be of a high quality and will align as closely as possible with in-school provision.
At Oyster Park Primary Academy all children will have access to an online learning platform. In Nursery & Reception this will be through Tapestry and in Years 1 to 6 it will be through Seesaw. The use of Seesaw for home learning has been modelled to all children in Year 1 to 6 to ensure children are clear on how they can access home learning tasks.
For those children, who do not have access to the online learning platform, paper copies of learning will be provided.
Teachers may direct children to relevant material on the Oak National Academy or BBC Bitesize.
Children should upload learning to their online learning platform to enable teachers to comment with feedback.
School will call children to monitor wellbeing and share verbal feedback. This will also be an opportunity to speak to parents/carers about the progress of their child’s remote education.
Reading will be personal to each child and consists of three elements:
1. Reading a book to your child
2. Reading a book with your child – they may be able to sound out or recognise some words
3. Listening to a book read by your child – they will be able to read most of the book to you but may need support with some words.
Children in Years 1 to 6 will be able to access additional Books via Bug Club.
Each week, teachers will upload their in-school learning to the online platform. Children should complete one maths lesson per day. The first set of learning the children will receive will be from the previous week in-school learning to act as a revision. This would also mean that the children will have received the teaching for their learning.
English & Phonics
Each week, teachers will upload their in-school learning to the online platform. Children should complete one writing lesson per day. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will be directed to the relevant Read Write Inc session. The first set of learning the children will receive will be from the previous week in-school learning to act as a revision. This would also mean that the children will have received the teaching for their learning.
Every day, teachers will upload their in-school learning to the online platform. This Learning Challenge may be from any aspect of the curriculum because it will be linked in to the current in-school learning.
Please note, learning will be uploaded by teachers by the end of the first full day of absence, following notification from parents.
