The Remote Curriculum (whole groups: KS1/2)
What to expect where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
The first few days
During normal school operation, where school is open to all pupils, each virtual classroom is updated weekly for every class. Therefore, all children have access to their online learning from the outset of their period of isolation or school closure.
Remote learning offer for KS1 and KS2
While school is closed to all but children of key workers and vulnerable children, our remote learning offer for children in KS1 and KS2 includes:
- One lesson every day in each of the following areas:
- One other subject (Science, Geography/History, Art/DT, Computing or RE)
- A pre-recorded PE workout, set weekly
- Access to resources to support mindfulness and well-being
- Access to programmes that will help children to learn spellings and times tables(for example via MyMaths, Numbest and Times table Rockstars)
The curriculum at home
We understand that you may wonder whether, following the first few days of remote education, your child will be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects.
Where a subject or topic is difficult to teach remotely, because of the resources needed or the level of supervision required, the curriculum plan will be adapted so that these areas are taught once children return to school. Instead, units of work will be selected that teach skills which have not yet been covered in school and build on the children’s learning prior to school closure.
