We will ensure that all children are nurtured, challenged and inspired so that they achieve the best outcomes during their time at our school and contribute positively to society.

Remote Learning - Year 6

Our teachers are still looking after your children during this lockdown with the help of Miss Dixon and Mrs Messruther. Each week, like the previous lockdown, they will contact you to check that everything is going well and to see if there is anything else we can do to help. If you require any additional support with your child’s learning at home, you can contact us via Google Classroom or MCAS and someone will get back to you.

If children are self-isolating, there is an expectation that they still complete work daily following the timetable that is suggested below for their class and return work through Google Classroom, so that the teachers can celebrate their achievements, provide feedback and support with next steps for your child’s learning.
If the year group bubble has to close, there is an expectation that children will  move to remote learning and continue to follow their suggested timetable.

Below is the remote learning timetable:

Each week, members of the Upper Key Stage 2 Team will post a variety of:

  • 5 Talk for Reading lessons 
  • 5 Talk for Writing lessons
  • 5 Effective Maths lessons
  • Daily fluency and spelling sessions 
  • PE challenges
  • Weekly DRET competitions
  • Wednesdays Wellbeing Board, which will include Music, PSHE (Jigsaw), Mindfulness, Yoga and Art challenges 
  • Core Knowledge lessons, which will include Hist PE, RE and Science tasks

Please remember you know your child best and can plan when it is the most effective time to sit down and complete the tasks.  But there is an expectation that each child will participate with learning for 3 hours each day. 

Do not forget to tune into our live story times and live celebration assembly each week. A link will have been sent out to you via MCAS/E-mail and will be available on your Google Classroom.
