As part of planning for learning during the Covid-19 pandemic the federation has prepared remote learning which includes direct teaching by one of our teachers for children to engage in at home if there is a partial (bubble) or full school closure due to isolation requirements or future lockdown measures. The remote learning offer will be in place for children who are non-symptomatic and well. The children’s first day of remote education will look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
Day one of learning can be accessed through this link: Curriculum Plans for Parent Use
In addition to this you can use TTRockstars, My maths, NumBots and read at home. There are many online books you can access free of charge via:
Learning from day two will be set using the Microsoft Teams platform, through assignments, quizzes and live video teaching.
Login details for your child(ren) will been sent to you by your class teacher to allow you to access the learning. Please note the ‘s’ of school for your password is lower case, but auto correct changed it to upper case! Please use a lower case s for your password in the word school.
Remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will follow a similar timetable to that of a ‘normal’ school day. Timetables will be added to the website on a weekly basis, shared through ClassDojo or Tapestry (EYFS) and your child(ren)s Team. These can be accessed from the following link: www.toftwoodfederation.co.uk/corona-virus-information/weekly-curriculum-plans-for-parent-use/
If your child(ren) are due to complete any interventions a separate timetable and email will be sent.
If for any reason, your child is unable to attend the live teaching sessions, these will be saved to enable your child to still have access to their learning.
Remote teaching and learning time each day:
Remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take your child(ren) broadly the following number of hours each day:
|EYFS/KS1||3 hours a day on average, reducing for younger children|
|KS2||4 hours a day|
Accessing Remote Teaching:
Learning will take place using the Microsoft Teams platform, using assignments, quizzes and live video teaching. EYFS will also use tapestry to set and monitor work completed.
Please view the Remote Learning Support video via the link below which explains how your child will be able to access the learning.
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will support be given?
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. Please make sure that you discuss any difficulties accessing remote learning with your child(ren)s class teacher. This can be done through ClassDojo or by calling the Office at either the Infant or Junior site.
