Because of the national lockdown, school is offering blended learning to those pupils who are not eligible to return to school (school is open to the children of critical workers and vulnerable children only). Both groups of pupils (those physically in school and those learning at home) are being offered the same provision and are following the school's curriculum map. All pupils are receiving full coverage of the National Curriculum.
Parents of children home-learning have the option for their children to undertake online learning via Dojo (EYFS) or Seesaw (Years 1-6) or request paper copies of work.
Week beginning 18 January 2021, school will be in a position to loan devices to some families who lack them to facilitate online learning (however school will not be in a position to offer one to all families who need them as the amount of devices received have been limited to 31 devices for the whole school).
In September 2020, we introduced Read, Write Inc to teach phonics. Children are set in small groups for Phonics activities according to the phase of Read Write Inc at which they are working.
We use a variety of materials in KS1 to teach reading but mostly use the Collins and Pearson schemes (and are about to begin the process of introducing the Read, Write Inc boks).
Reading in classes across the whole school from Years 1 - 6 is focused on high quality class novels chosen to link to children’s interests and topics taught in lessons.
