Remote Learning\Google Classroom
From the 5th January 2021 the Government expects all schools to facilitate online Remote Learning. The expectation from the Government is that children at home will engage with Remote Learning if they are not at school.
The aim of Remote Learning is to support the learning of those who are not at school because they are self-isolating or awaiting test results for themselves or a family member. This will also support learning for those classes/bubbles who have to shut for a short time either due to a positive test result or because we do not have enough staff to remain open safely.
At Lyndhurst, we have chosen to use the Google Classroom platform, supported by the Government recommended Oak National Academy.
Google Classrooms will allow children to access their curriculum and upload or “turn in” their completed work. The teacher will ‘assess’ this work and give feedback comments for your child.
There is an information sheet and video below that explains how to access Google Classroom and the tasks that staff have set for your child. There is also an information sheet on how to access Google Classroom through an XBox or Playstation. The Google Classroom FAQ's sheet below should answer any questions you have about work expectations, how to share the work your child has completed and how to see the comments that the teacher makes after viewing your child's work.
This is your child’s curriculum during the time they are physically unable to attend Lyndhurst, and they are expected to interact and complete the tasks set. You may contact your child’s teacher, if you have any questions about the task set, by making a comment on your child’s work. You can also contact the school in the usual way. The class teacher will contact you if your child has not been interacting with the work set, to see how they may support your family with their Remote learning.
In addition below there is a document entitled a 'Month of Outdoor Activities'. This has suggested ideas of different activities to do when you go on a walk. KS1 children can also access this document through Google Classroom.
