Welcome to the St Andrew's Home Learning Page.

 

Remote Learning Provision

We are committed to providing blended learning for all our pupils regardless of whether they are educated at school or at home. Blended learning is a two- way process of teaching. The first is using face to face interaction to educate (in school) whilst the second is through electronic platforms to educate online (remote learning).

As a school, we have adapted our curriculum so that any child who needs to learn from home due to a COVID related absence, can access the same learning that is happening for the whole class. Our adapted blocked plans can be found on each class page.

It is very important that children accessing remote learning at home do the work that is sent by their teacher. We have carefully changed our curriculum to provide access to both in-school education and home provision and by not doing the work set, children will be at a disadvantage when returning to school as they will not be at the same point as their peers in the sequence of lessons. 

 

Our remote learning plan for whole group bubble closures

Class teachers will host a TEAMS meeting daily – we will do our best to ensure that this is accessible to all children and will consider those with siblings in other classes. During this meeting, the teacher will explain the work for the morning and deliver some teaching points. Communication is also available through Purple Mash.

All work will be made available using TEAMS, through the Assignments function or Files. For those families unable to access TEAMS, alternative provision will be made.

Pupils will be set an English and maths task for each day as well as an afternoon task, linked to what they would have been doing in school.

Children are expected to submit/email their work to their class teacher as requested. Feedback will be given by the year group where relevant.

 

Our remote learning plan for individual pupils isolating at home

The relevant class teacher will make work available to the pupil as soon as is practicable – we will aim for this to be before 11am. This will usually be made available using TEAMS, Purple Mash or the home learning section on our website,

Pupils will be sent an English and maths task for each day of absence as well as learning for other lessons taking place. Children are expected to submit their work to their class teacher.

Our first piece of advice to parents is that all children find elements of learning challenging at times so try not to worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. If this happens then make a note of what they found hard and move onto another learning activity.

 

 

St Andrew’s Home Learning Grids

In creating the Home Learning Grids, we fully acknowledge that they cannot replace the quality of learning your child receives at school however, our complete focus has been on creating a set of projects that all children can access to maximise their learning whilst at home. Please be mindful during busy times online services may be slower.

What are the aims of the Learning Projects?

●To create age specific learning opportunities.

●To create a resource for parents that is easy to access and use - the focus is on parents being able to help deliver the content or children accessing it independently.

●Key learning is linked to the National Curriculum.

●To enable children to continue with their learning at home during an enforced closure.

● To enable families to focus on a joint topic and theme to promote family wide learning.

● To provide structure and focus to each day.

● To centralise online learning resources and links into an easy to manage format for families.

How do I use the Learning Projects?

As a parent your first step is to select the age range linked to the year group your child is in. You then download the learning grid and begin following suggested directed activities. The aim is for you to complete a minimum of two hours of learning a day with your child but this is very much your parental choice and you may wish for your child to do more.

A new grid will be uploaded each week to continue your child’s learning journey.

What happens if my child finds the learning too difficult?

Our first piece of advice to parents is that all children find elements of learning challenging at times so try not to worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. If this happens then make a note of what they found hard and move onto another learning activity.
