What’s my child expected to do?

We’re determined to keep all of our pupil’s on-track this year and make sure no one falls behind if they need to learn from home because of coronavirus.

So, we want to make sure your child can learn as much as possible at home. Since Wednesday 6th January we have been providing all children with daily live teaching sessions via Microsoft Teams.  We have been encouraged by the level of attendance and engagement and in light of feedback we have now revised our teaching timetables so that we are better able to support all children and parents.

 

Reception Class, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 Class Timetable

 

Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 Class Timetable

 

The timetable above is a suggested outline for the school day. Please feel free to structure your day to meet the needs of your family. The only thing that cannot be moved is the timings of the Live Lessons. Below is an explanation of what each session should look like:

Live lessons – the teacher (normally the class teacher but there may be occasions where another teacher will deliver the lesson) will give an input, explain the task and be available to answer questions.

Follow-up activity – this is the time to complete the task that was set in the Live Lesson.

Reading – this is the time we expect children to read – either a book or an e-book (this could be from the MyOn login the children have been using

Physical Activity – the Government guidelines want schools to encourage children to be active even though they are at home. So in this time we suggest that the children do a Joe Wicks Lesson, some Cosmic Yoga, if they have a skipping rope – a session skipping or going for a walk with the family. Be as creative as you like.

Love of Reading –At Sheddingdean we encourage children to read and want them to find a way of enjoying reading as it develops their language enormously. Ideas could be reading a story to a sibling or a sibling reading to them, sharing a story yourselves or watching a short film.

We will continue to provide support through regular contact with teachers through Microsoft TEAMS meetings, so that your child knows how they are doing.

We ask you to create a positive environment for your child to learn at home, for example: Distinguish between weekdays and weekends, to separate school life and home life. If possible provide a working space, and at the end of the day have a clear cut-off to signal school time is over.

It will also help if you:

  • Create and stick to a routine, as this is what your child is used to at school. For example, eat breakfast at the same time each morning and make sure they're dressed before starting the ‘school’ day.
  • Stick a timetable up on the wall so everyone knows what they should be doing when, and tick activities off throughout the day.
  • Make time for exercise and breaks throughout the day to keep your child active
