Online Learning

For children who aren’t attending school, we will be providing a full online learning timetable for all children with similar lessons to the children in school. You will have been sent a username and password via text so you can log on via zoom. More detail on your child’s timetable can be found below. All children will also receive resources to work at home (whiteboard, pens etc.) and a reading book. 

/docs/Home_Learning_Timetable_-_Spring_2021.docx

As you can see Reception children have 3 and a half hours of online learning which is a mixture of zoom lessons and independent work. We know some children may find it difficult to focus for long periods on Zoom so extra activities are put on Evidence Me every day. Please out any photos of activities you have done on Evidence Me; staff look at it every day. 

Year 1 and Year 2 have 3 and a half hours of online learning, including some independent work on Mathletics. Please speak to your teacher if your child needs another copy of their Mathletics details.

Year 3-6  have 4 hours and 45 minutes of online learning, including independent reading and independent work on Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars. 

How will work be recorded and marked?

Work will be a mixture of work on whiteboards which teachers can respond to immediately, answers in the chat feature, answers recorded on Mathletics as well as work done in the exercise book you have at home. Staff give feedback to children in the lessons and if a child requires extra help, there are teaching assistants on every lesson who can work with a couple of children in a breakout room; just ask the teacher for help. Staff don't work 1:1 with children in a breakout room.

What if my child has special needs?

If your child has an EHC and you have chosen not to bring your child to school, their SNA will deliver as much of their timetable as they can via zoom. Some interventions may be more difficult. Please speak to Ms Berry if you have concerns. There is a place for every child with an EHC in school and they will receive their full timetable.

I am working from home, do I need to help in the lessons?

No, you don't need to. Obviously some children will need help logging on  and we would ask you to make sure your child is logged on at the right time but most key stage 2 children should be able to log on by themselves; we have shown them in school how to do this. You don't need to help your child in the lessons but if you can help with younger children, it will obviously help your child get more from the sessions and help you see how we teach different subjects. 

Is my child missing what is being taught in school?

No, the same objectives are being taught in school and at home. However, obviously they will be approached in different ways for example there are some activities which need to be changed to be taught online. The teachers plan together each week and they are teaching the same topics and texts as we had planned to teach if the school was open. This is because the order we teach our lessons in is very important as we build on things taught before. This is why your child should log on every day so they don't miss anything.

What if I don't have a device?

If you do not have device, please ring the school and add your name to the waiting list. However, we do not have a device to give to every child in the school. The government has given us 65 laptops and we are using our other devices to give to as many children as we can. As the government has told us, we are giving them to free school meals children first and will try our very best. There are 660 children and we don't have enough for everyone. 

If we aren't able to give you a device, we will provide work packs which can be collected from the school each Friday. These will cover the same work as the online lessons. If you are on the mobile network EE, Three, Sky, Tesco or Virgin, we can provide extra mobile data so lessons can be done via a phone. Please email or ring the school for more details or email office@heybrook.org. There are also lessons for children every morning on the CBBC channel on all TVs. Someone who works with your child will phone you once a week to see how you are getting on and you can ask that your child's teacher rings you if you need extra help or extra resources.

Other Resources

Below is a list of other resources you can access online and we will put more links on twitter regularly.
