In order to minimise disruption to children’s learning during any long-term absence from school, and to provide continuity, Brampton Primary School has provided guidance and key website links to support children and parents at home.
Brampton Primary School uses Microsoft Teams as the main remote learning platform that children can use. Through Teams, children can access work that has been set for them, and find other links to supportive, teaching websites.
All children have individual logins and are familiar with accessing Teams either in school or at home.
Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS) is a website and application (available on Android and Apple tablets and mobile phones) that supports children in learning the multiplication tables. By enabling pupils to practise the multiplication tables in an engaging environment, children develop their mathematical fluency by having fun. Learning the multiplication tables is an essential element of the mathematics curriculum and supports pupils in all other areas of mathematics. TTRS is also a crucial tool for helping us prepare children for the Year 4 Multiplication Tables check and the Key Stage 2 SATs.
How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?
The government have set out how many hours are expected for each Key Stage of education:
Key Stage 1: three hours of remote learning
Key Stage 2: four hours of remote learning
In Reception and Nursery, where children explore much of their learning through play, home learning should reflect this approach. There should be a balance between adult-directed and child-initiated time.
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will the school support them to access remote education?
Where a child does not have access to a device, the school will do whatever it can to support parents with laptops, where they are available, and by providing paper-based learning packs.
If there is a lack of technological devices in the household, parents should contact the school via firstname.lastname@example.org to seek support.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
During any long-term absence from school, parents of children with SEND who require additional support at home should email the email@example.com email so that the SENCO and inclusion team can offer help and ideas.
