Remote Home Learning

During periods of school closure or whilst individuals, households or groups need to self-isolate the school will provide remote home learning activity ideas. These will be posted on the class blog for periods of school closure and emailed to you if your child, household or small group need to self-isolate.

Teachers will endeavour to make the learning interesting, stimulating and accessible. They will provide a variety of tasks and challenges for your child to pick from or work through. Please do not worry and do what you can, you do not need to do it all. The mental well-being of your child is the most important factor and if that is cared for then they will recover any potential lost learning far quicker.

Teachers are aware that families cannot teach children all day, use of ICT for some may be limited and that not everyone has a printer. Tasks will therefore be made accessible in a variety of ways rather than relying on one set method. We are also aware that every home learning environment will be different, with different factors to consider.

The learning activities provided offer a range for you to choose from, you do not and we do not expect you to do it all. The children and yourselves can choose your own challenge from the activities suggested or create learning activities of your own. We have broken them down into the following headings as a guide;

MUST = an activity the children should be able to complete, mainly, independently.

SHOULD = an activity the children might need some additional support with.

COULD = an activity which is likely the children will need additional, more sustained, support from an adult or older sibling.

We have then also included some extension activities. These are activities which you may choose to undertake instead of the MUST, SHOULD and COULD or as well as. Every week there will be a task which we would like every child to send back into school, via email. Teachers will mark this set activity and provide individualised feedback.

Every day you will be sent English, Maths and Foundation Subject activities.

During a period of school closure we are still open to vulnerable and key workers children. This means that the majority of teachers are on site everyday teaching, they therefore cannot be ‘online’ providing face-to-face sessions at the same time.

Support:

  • Every day a teacher will be available for the children or yourselves to book a slot to discuss the learning set.
  • This is an opportunity to ask questions about the learning, get feedback on learning the children have undertaken and provide some reassurance if required.
  • Please email office@finchingfieldacademy.com if you would like to book a slot.

We will also contact you every so often just to say hello and see if there is anything we can do to support you. This might be via telephone or email.
