At Pot Kiln, we understand the need to continually deliver high quality education, including during periods of remote working – whether for an individual pupil or many. We recognise the importance of maintaining high expectations in all areas of school life and ensuring that all pupils have access to the learning resources and support they need to succeed.
As we begin another season of remote learning, we just wanted to take this opportunity to make you aware of some of the practical support we can offer you in partnership with the Department for Education.
If you find that your child has to be at home due to a medical issue long-term, we suggest you use this model timetable to structure your day at home and continue to help your child to learn.
9:00 – 10:00am Session One
10:00 – 10:15am Break
10:15 – 11:15am Session Two
11:15 – 11:30am Break
11:30 – 12:30pm Session Three
Afternoon up till 3:00pm School wide challenges/activities or practical learning based on resources you may have at home. Do seek guidance from your class teacher about the afternoons.
We will be using the learning platforms to encourage home learning this year. Please ensure you download the Tapestry APP for children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 when this comes home in the early Autumn term 2021. For children in Year 2-6 you will to download the Seesaw APP.
Teachers will set home learning on these APPs which will be tasks for your child to do. You can either send the results of their work into school on paper or upload them to the APP.
We, of course, will also be sending reading books home and phonics work where this is appropriate to your child. Please do support this by reading to and with your child at least 4 times a week. If your child is in Year 3-6 they will also have access to Times Table Rockstars and do support your child with learning their number bonds to 10 and 20 in the younger years and their multiplication tables in the older years. Again, if you need any help with any home learning, please talk to your class teacher.
In Years one to six we use Seesaw to set work and provide feedback. Your child’s class teacher will have provided you with the relevant log in information. You will need to download the ‘Seesaw Class’ app.
