Remote Learning due to Covid-19
Our revised Remote Learning Policy may be found in the ‘Policies’ section of our website.
We have carefully considered how to engage children in enjoyable learning, during any ’ Lockdown’.
We aim to ensure all children make the progress they would make while in school ; and to help parents support their children whilst they master hybrid or remote learning.
If a year group ‘bubble’ is required to go home or if we are required by Government to comply with a full lockdown, we provide a mixture of daily (3-5 hours) live and recorded , form teacher and specialist subject, online sessions.
Along with this , we supervise one to one reading and support individuals and groups, with oral and written work, using live communication with children (and where required, their parents).
Textbooks, printed materials and exercise books are sent home regularly, in order to further support this online learning.
Academic rigour continues in Year 4 and again, children are encouraged to take full responsibility for their learning. There is a full programme of study in both core and foundation subjects throughout the year and smaller group work sessions in English and Maths occur during the Summer Term. Testing and Assessment continues termly with parents being given a full set of test results with personal targets in the Spring Term and at the end of the Summer Term. The year culminates in a two day, one night visit to the Downe Outward Bound Centre where the children experience many outdoor activities and are able to challenge themselves in all areas.
