Learning From Home/Remote Learning

How will school provide Online/Remote Learning?

Please find at the bottom of this page a range of home learning starter activities to be completed whilst off school for COVID-19 reasons (including any bubble closures).

We are using Microsoft Teams to allow children to access live lessons and to share their work with their teachers. If you need any support with accessing Microsoft Teams, or have misplaced your child's login information, please email admin2405@welearn365.com for support.

To access Teams, children should visit  www.welearn365.com, select Long Lawford from the drop-down menu and then use their details to sign in. Once on the Long Lawford page, click on the 9 dots in the top left corner and select Teams. There is also a Teams app which they can download and use the same information to log in.

During the National Lockdown (January 2021), staff are providing "Live Lessons" to children Monday to Thursday each week.  Online activities are provided for children on a Friday.  Engagement in "Live Learning" is monitored closely by the school, and support offered where needed. 

For Nursery children, families can access one "live lesson" of up to 30 minutes daily Monday-Thursday plus online activities uploaded to Teams.  Online activities are provided for all children on a Friday.

For Reception children, families can access two sessions of up to 30minutes daily Monday-Thursday plus online learning activities uploaded to Teams.  Online activities are provided for all children on a Friday.

For KS1 children, families can access one English (including phonics) live lesson of up to 30 minutes and one Maths live lesson of up to 30 minutes daily Monday to Thursday plus online activities uploaded to Teams. 

For KS2 children, families can access one English live lesson of up to 30 minutes and one Maths live lesson of up to 30 minutes daily Monday-Thursday plus online activities uploaded to Teams.  Online activities are provided for all children on a Friday.

All online/remote learning reflects what is being delivered in the classroom for critical/vulnerable children that are attending school site.  Teachers/Teaching assistants feed back to pupils daily.  School staff are also providing children with interventions where needed.

Long Lawford is committed to providing children with a broad and balanced curriculum either remotely or on school site.  Further resources are available below for a wide range of curriculum subjects.

Some useful home learning resources are on the BBC Bitesize website and from the government at The Oak National Academy.  Once logged into their email, children will also be able to access Purple Mash.  If you are unsure how to access this great learning platform, please email admin2405@welearn365.com and we will do our best to help.

There is a further page of Online Learning resources, updated for January 2021, at the bottom of this page as well as our school Facebook page.

 

Phonics

Phonics for EYFS and KS1 is really important.  See a video here about how to pronounce all of the sounds!  We can recommend the CBeebies show Alphablocks, who model correct phoneme pronunciation and great segmenting and blending for early reading!

 

A digital story book about Coronavirus

Axel Scheffler has illustrated a digital book for primary school children, free for anyone to read on screen or print out.  It's about the Coronavirus and the measures taken to control it.

The book answers key questions in simple language appropriate for 5 to 9 year olds:

• What is the coronavirus?
• How do you catch the coronavirus?
• What happens if you catch the coronavirus?
• Why are people worried about catching the coronavirus?
• Is there a cure for the coronavirus?
• Why are some places we normally go to closed?
• What can I do to help?
• What’s going to happen next?

The authors want to make sure that every child and family has access to this book  and so the book is offered totally free of charge to anyone who wants to read it. If you would like to share it with your family click here.

 

Online Safety

We are aware that children will be using technology a lot to help with their learning. If you have any concerns relating to Online Safety, please contact the school. Alternatively, the CEOP website has lots of information about what to do. Click here to access it!
