Remote Learning Plan

Rose Hill Primary School Remote Learning Plan – January 2021  

 

In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, Rose Hill Primary School has developed the following plan. This plan offers remote learning opportunities whilst also acknowledging that some households have limited access to devices and would require hard-copies of work and resources.

This plan will be applied in the following instances:

  • An individual is self-isolating because of a positive test within the household;
  • A group of children are self-isolating because of a case of coronavirus in the bubble;
  • A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus

The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document Guidance for Full Opening of Schools.

Software and online platforms

Within all plans, teachers will set appropriate work in-line with our current curriculum, primarily supplemented by a range of resources provided by Oak Academy.

Children will remain in contact with the school through use of a designated email address remotelearning@rosehillprimary.net.

Oak Academy has been selected to support remote learning for a number of reasons. The Oak Academy lessons are in-line with our teaching ethos – they encourage the use of retrieval practice, explicit teaching with high quality modelling, and the use of deliberate practice. The online lessons are free to all and offer a recorded taught session so that the children can access physical teaching from a teacher and then access work relating to that lesson within the same website. There are also hundreds of lessons specifically aimed at children with SEND needs and requiring additional support. Class teachers will be sharing some example lessons in the classroom so children are familiar with the platform.

Spelling Shed, Numbots, Mathletics and TT Rockstars can all be utilised to support the acquisition and retention of basic core skills.

MarvellousMe will remain in use as the communication element has already proved to be invaluable. Teachers will be able to communicate with pupils and offer ‘rewards’ to celebrate successes of home learning.

In the event of any form of isolation and loss of learning caused by Coronavirus, parents must understand that engagement in home learning is expected as is the expectation that Rose Hill Primary School makes that provision available and accessible to all. However, if children themselves are too ill to attend then they should not be expected to engage in home learning.

In preparation for home-learning, parents and children need to receive logins and passwords for the following platforms (likewise teaching staff need to be familiar with them):

  • MarvellousMe - All
  • Spelling Shed – Years 1 – 6
  • TT Rockstars/ Numbots - All
  • Accelerated Reader – Years 3 – 6
  • Mathletics – Years 3 - 6

Remote Learning

The initial response to any isolation will be to provide children with home learning materials (this might need to be delivered). In the case of whole cohort isolation, resources will be uploaded to https://www.rosehillprimary.net/Pupils/Remote-Learning/ This will provide a guide as to what units from https://www.thenational.academy/ should be followed.

The school will upload a work guide at: https://www.rosehillprimary.net/Pupils/Remote-Learning/

This will provide a summary of what online resources should be accessed and a schedule of learning to be complete.

 

This will provide a basis of lessons for a minimum of 10 days. Whilst it is understood and hoped that children will be able to have access to a COVID test and return to school quicker this will provide two working weeks’ worth of work for the pupils.

Where children would normally receive additional support from SEND agencies, the SENDCO will make arrangements for those to continue via Teams as long as the agencies engage.

 

The SENDCO will share appropriate Oak National SEND lessons with teachers who will disseminate accordingly.
