Parent Guides and Other Information
What should I expect from Remote Learning?
- Our staff will provide four activities for each day; these will always include an English and a maths task. The other tasks will reflect the broad curriculum provided at St Paul's.
- Class teachers will indicate one piece of work daily that must be 'submitted' for a 'deep mark'. This must be submitted by 3:00pm. An example of feedback from a 'deep mark' is:
“Well done Holly, great adjectives to describe your character – I like shimmering and gigantic. Neat handwriting too. 2 dojos.
Next time, capital letters to start each sentence.”
- Other tasks will be acknowledged by the teacher with a comment, such as: "Excellent research."
If your child is unwell and unable to complete remote learning for the day, please inform the class teacher (firstname.lastname@example.org) or school office by 9:30am and they will be marked as 'absent from learning'.
- Questions for staff should be sent via email@example.com or via Google Classroom. Staff will try to answer by the end of the session (morning or afternoon) that a question or concern is received.
How should I structure my day?
- Children need regular breaks and a chance to move around. Children in the infants may find it manageable to focus for 20/25 minutes at a time on an individual activity. Children in the juniors may be able to focus for 30-40 minutes when really engaged.
- Plan in physical breaks and opportunities to get outside in the middle of activities where possible - this is how we use the daily mile.
- Make sure that children have access to water or a drink when working and make time for regular snacks too.
- Plan in times in the day for them to have free choice - complete a puzzle, do some drawing, play a game, read a book etc..
Where can I find resources?
- There will be resources posted daily on your child's Google Classroom from November 2020. Please see the Parents' Guide at the top of the page.
- There are other suggestions of resources on each curriculum page too. There are also some activity suggestions on these pages too.
- https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize is also an excellent resource for information about different subjects.
Where else can I get support?
- If you have a question for your teacher you can email on: firstname.lastname@example.org. Emails will be checked between 8:45am and 3:30pm. We will try our best to respond on the same day, but this will depend on the volume of emails that we are receiving.
