Remote Learning

During the closure of the school due to Covid-19 we are providing resources to support parents with their children’s learning at home. In the event of further closures, or periods of individual or bubble self isolation, we are continuing to use Tapestry and Google Classroom for those children unable to attend school.  We attach the following 2 key documents:

The Remote Learning Policy

The Remote Learning Information Flier

Tapestry – Nursery and Reception Learning

Teachers working in Reception will continue to upload daily learning for Maths, English and Phonics to Tapestry. Children will be able to upload images of the learning they have completed onto Tapestry for the teachers to give feedback on. The staff working in Nursery and Reception will also be posting regular fun challenges for the children to take part in. Teachers will also meet with children twice weekly on Google Meet.

Google Classroom and Google Meet Live Lessons

All children have a reminder of their Google Classroom login in their home learning book or, for those starting to use Google Classroom recently, parents have been emailed login details.
We have now welcomed Nursery and Reception to Google Classroom. They will also be able to attend Google Meet by logging in. 

Instructions for using Google Classroom and protocols are attached below. 

We have increased the provision of remote learning.  Each week teachers are posting slides used in school on Google Classroom.  In addition to this, from January 2021, teachers are providing one or two Google Meets each day. As before, other lessons have a Loom or other accompanying video to support explanations.

As before, each week the teachers will indicate the learning which can be uploaded.  All uploaded learning will receive a feedback comment for the children. 

Children must be logged in with their own Google login. See attachment below.

Google Meet does not work on Safari browser. Mobile devices need an app.

Google Classroom for Assemblies and Singing Assemblies
During whole school closure, virtual assemblies will be posted into each of the Classrooms on Google Classroom. Mrs Jennings will also be posting a virtual Singing Assembly each week into the Google Classrooms



Other South Rise logins (all detailed in home learning book)

As part of Spelling and Maths provision at South Rise, pupils in Years 1-6 also have logins for EdShed which is accessible from home at all times.

Details on Further Resources page.

Further resources
In the event of whole or partial closure, there are many websites providing a wealth of resources for home learning including the government website and BBC Bitesize. We have listed some of these on the Further Resources page for you to look at as required. While it is valuable to have so many resources available, seeing so many can be daunting. They are there so you can select ideas and support for learning you are doing at home, and can be fitted in between equally important fresh air, exercise and downtime.  The teachers will, at times direct pupils to certain ones.

Keeping you informed
We will keep you informed regularly of provision for home learning in letters to parents and letters to children.
The Compass Partnership Trust are also sending regular letters home.
