My child's bubble has closed, what should I do?

 If, due to Coronavirus, we find ourselves in the unfortunate situation whereby a bubble is required to close, we would continue to provide daily teaching for all children. This would be provided through the use of Google Classroom.

On your child's 'Year Group Home Learning' page you will be able to easily find day by day provision for learning across the curriculum by clicking on the 'Classwork’ tab. The work will be organised within this section in date order.

The activities are planned and designed to provide structure and focus for each day.  Activities are planned by teachers, based on the National Curriculum, and for Early Years, the Early Years Foundation Stage expectations.  The lessons will continue the classwork children would be doing if they were in school. There will be 3 'lessons' per day; maths, English and 1 other (eg. music, PE or RE). For each 'lesson' there will be a video or written information, that aims to introduce the learning and explain the task the children need to complete. In addition, we will endeavour to upload other videos which we hope will help your child maintain a connection with school, for example stories being read or an assembly.

Each day we suggest that your child enjoys reading a book of their choice to an adult. Ask your child some questions about what they have read, eg. What new vocabulary have you learned from your reading? What do these words mean? Who is the main character? What do you think is going to happen next?

We have also suggested a daily maths focus (eg. practising number bonds, x tables) and, if appropriate, a phonics focus which is in addition to the English and maths lesson.

A suggested daily timetable would be as follows:

9.00 - 9.15 - Assembly / Welcome

Session 1: 9.15 - 10.15 - English

Session 2: 10.30 - 11.30 - Maths

Session 3: 12.30 - 1.15 - Reading

Session 4: 1.15 - 2.30 - Foundation Subject (eg. RE / music / PE).

Please remember the importance of English and maths skills and the need for children to practise these key skills daily. Other subjects are added as these are what the children would be doing in school.

In addition to this, your child will be invited to join live teaching sessions with their class teacher or a member of the year group team. These will take place using Google Meet. This feature can be accessed via Google Classroom. More information will be detailed if and when required. This will be appropriate to the age and suitability of the child and would help to promote continued connection during this period. The live sessions will replicate the model offered to your child during the school closure period (Jan—March 2021).

Staff will provide regular feedback throughout the closure period in order to promote the continued progression of your child’s learning. Should you need any further support in this instance, for example, the printing of resources, we would endeavour to provide you with the tools you need to support your child effectively at home.
