Access to remote learning resources

We have put together a guide explaining how to download and install Microsoft 365 software using school email accounts we have set up for the children.  Please contact your child's teacher for email addresses and passwords.  This option is for children in Years 1 to Year 6.   

We have also set up class Microsoft Teams for all classes in Key Stage 1 and 2 (Years 1 to 6) in the event that whole classes need to self-isolate along with the class teacher.  

 

Click here to watch a video clip about how to install Microsoft Teams on devices at home.

 

You might find the following information helpful to support you when using Microsoft Teams at home. It tells you how to log in, how to find your child's work, how to submit assignments, how to read teacher feedback and also how to edit PDF documents!

Home Learning

There may be the possibility that  a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate due to Covid-19.  Should this be necessary, Borrow Wood has put a contingency plan in place to enable learning to continue at home.

 

Please see the information below to familiarise yourselves with how home-learning will work, should we need to provide remote education for the whole school, a class, group or individual pupils who need to shield or self-isolate.

Online Home Learning Expectations Years 1- 6

A link to the expectations for the working day will be provided for you by the first day of your absence from school.

All resources/links will be available on the school website under your child’s year group.

Times Table Rock Stars to be completed for around 10 minutes, daily. 

 

 

Spelling Shed to be completed for around 10 minutes, daily. 

 

 

  • Reading -  Lesson aimed at the expected standard for your child’s year group– please contact your child’s teacher if your child is unable to access the level of reading expected. Alternative provision will be arranged. 
  • English lesson - 1 hour 
  • Maths lesson – 1 hour 
  • Phonics/Spelling 
  • You will complete learning tasks in 2 wider curriculum areas  
  • Reading for pleasure – as usual, we would like our children to continue to read books for pleasure every day. The 25B booklets are available on our website for children to tick off what they have read. Click here for more information about 25B.   If your child reads enough to earn a 25B band, please email their teacher who will arrange to have a band delivered to you! Many of the books are available on the free e-books currently available on Kindle devices. 

 

Where possible, we would like your children to email their work to their teacher each day. See email addresses on each home learning page and on the remote learning pro formas.

 

In the event that a whole class or year group need to isolate, remote learning will be led using Microsoft Teams and information will be sent to your child about how this can be accessed.

 

Additional support and provision 

Each lesson will begin with retrieval practice. This is a strategy in which bringing information to mind enhances and boosts learning. Deliberately recalling information forces us to pull our knowledge “out” and examine what we know. This will therefore support your children in knowing and remembering more about what they have learnt. These will be called memory tasks. 

 

Where work is sent into the teachers via email, feedback will be given although this may not be on each individual piece of work. 

 

There are support materials available for Maths, English and topic areas on our school website to support learning. Please see the links below: 

Maths Prompt Sheets
