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 email@example.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 were providing "Live Lessons" to children Monday to Thursday each week. Online activities are provided for children on a Friday. Engagement in "Live Learning" was monitored closely by the school, and support offered where needed.
Upon the school's full re-opening on Monday 8th March 2021, online provision will revert back to what is was in the Autumn Term. The Online Learning Plan can be found at the bottom of this page.
All online/remote learning reflects what is being delivered in the classroom. Teachers/Teaching assistants feed back to pupils regularly.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We are all aware of the difficulties with managing screen time - please see the guide below for tips on how to help everyone spend less time in front of the screen.
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.
Reading at home
It is really important to keep reading as much as possible at home. Reading is the key that unlocks everything in learning. Check out the Rugby Library Facebook page to see what they're doing to support reading in Lockdown.
Additional reading ideas and activities can be found here at the Book Trust. We link in with the Book Trust regularly as a support to our Power of Reading scheme. Some wonderful ideas to help put the fun back into reading! We are also looking at additional online reading resources - watch this space!
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!
For further information about Online Safety and safeguarding, please look at our safeguarding page.
