Remote Learning – Google Classroom
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home
A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?
The children will already have been allocated their log in details so that they can access Google Classroom as this platform is used on a weekly basis by the children and staff to set work and homework. Therefore, the children will be able to access work on their Year Group Google Classroom the morning following the announcement of lockdown restrictions being implemented. This work will include some maths and literacy work alongside at least one or two pieces of work from other areas of the curriculum. The work will be set at the appropriate level for each child to ensure that it is accessible and meets their learning needs
Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
It is our intention to provide the children at Calcot Schools with a broad and balanced curriculum both when they are learning in class but also when accessing work remotely. Additionally the remote learning will, where possible, be varied, engaging and interactive.
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. For example making changes to the order of topics or changing a cookery unit to an alternative unit in D.T. Additionally some of the practical music lessons will not be accessible from home as the instruments are in school. We will be posting weekly music assemblies to ensure the children have access to the normal listening program delivered in school.
