Covid-19 Remote Learning at WFIS & Nursery

Hello and a very warm welcome to the remote learning page!

Our Contingency Plan for Remote Learning can be accessed here.

Our Parental Feedback results from the Spring 2021 Lockdown Remote Learning provision can be accessed here.

Please see this suggested timetable to follow in order to help structure your child’s day during remote learning.

 

Remote learning for achildren who are self-isolating

‘Get-going work’ and Live Lessons: This is for children who are self-isolating and/or awaiting test results (if they are well enough to complete the learning).

Each year group will prepare a paper pack of activities covering key skills in reading, spelling, grammar and maths. In Nursery, this will be a grid with some suggested home activities.

Children will also access online resources like Reading Eggs, Numbots and Purple Mash.

On the day of notification of absence, either the pack will be emailed or a paper copy will be available from the school office for collection (where this is not possible, we will deliver the pack to the family).

Teachers will continue to provide parents/carers with login details for Google Meet where lessons undertaken in school will be streamed to children at home. In Key Stage 1 children will have 4 live lessons a day and accompanying work will be uploaded onto Class Dojo for parents/carers to access remotely. In Reception, children will have 3 live lessons a day in which all learning will be undertaken within the lesson. In Nursery, children will have 1 live lesson a day.

The Get Going Packs will provide families with additional learning that can be completed over the isolation period. In Nursery and Reception this includes a learning grid of additional tasks which children will be able to access independently.


Class or year group closure due to positive cases or school closure as a result of local/national lockdown

In the unfortunate event of a year group or class closure, or a wider lockdown, different procedures as outlined in WFIS & Nursery Contingency Plan for Remote Learning will apply. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will use the Class Dojo app as an online learning platform (children in Nursery will use Tapestry to which parents already have access). 

Using Class Dojo will enable your child/ren's Class Teacher to post photos, videos, files, and text updates on a private feed as well as share links to resources and give feedback on work submitted. We have already asked parents to connect to the app, however, if you have not already done so, you can follow the links below and follow the instructions here.  Please contact the school office for your child’s individual login details. 

Reading

Reading should be a daily activity and we have a variety of resources to support you with this at home. As we are sure you are aware reading for just 20 minutes a day at home has many benefits, including strengthening the brain and building vocabulary. If you are finding it difficult to get hold of books, we have the following subscriptions, and also see links to free websites with e-books:

Reading Eggs – includes ‘Fast Phonics’ (use your child’s individual log in details)

Oxford Owl (free resource)

Book Trust  (free resource)

 

Additional Online Resources

Here are a few resources you may find useful to supplement your child’s school education. These are resources that are regularly used with the children in school.

Teach Handwriting – a website to support the teaching of handwriting

Handwriting Videos – watch our school made clips of Miss Langley for children to follow

Phonics Play – a free website with phonics activities

Top Marks – a range of resources for all curriculum areas

CBeebies Games – a range of resources linked to CBeebies shows

BBC Bitesize KS1 – Year 1 and Year 2 resources for all curriculum areas

 

E-Safety

Remember...whilst we are encouraging the use of the Internet to enhance and support children in their learning, we would also like to take this opportunity to remind parents about the importance of online safety. If you have any concerns or need any advice regarding this, please refer to our E-safety policy which you can find here.
