Remote learning 2021

Home Learning From September 2021


If your child is having to isolate but is well enough to continue school work, this will be provided by class teachers via google classroom.

Each week, a new set of lessons will be sent out to your child’s google classroom page with links to Oak Academy. These lessons will be in line with what the children in school are covering and provide online lessons, videos and quizzes to support your child’s learning.

Here you will find all of the links for the week. The expectation is that your child will complete a Maths lesson, an English lesson and a Foundation lesson each day.


If a child needs some support with the work, please contact school, but do be aware that teachers will be in their classrooms all day, so will not be able to get back to you immediately.



It is vital, during these disrupted times, that children keep as much routine as possible with their learning.  Follow our top tips to get the most out of their Home Learning.


Home Learning Top Tips

  • Ensure that you follow best practice for online safety - know what your child is accessing and who they are communicating with. (For more guidance see our online safety section)
  • Establish a routine for Monday to Friday, that includes the usual refreshment breaks and a good balance of physical activity and sitting down to work.
  • Allow your child some say in the order that work is completed, but once decided, it must be stuck to - don't allow negotiation throughout the day.
  • If there is one subject that your child finds harder than another, do that one first, while they are fresh, and get it out of the way.
  • Do everything you can to remain positive and praise effort more than achievement.
  • Some children may need the timetable visually - it can help to tick things off when they are done.
  • Work towards a reward (TV time, game time etc) that can be reduced if time is wasted or there is not enough effort being put in.
  • If possible have an allocated area for working away from distractions.
  • Do not have TV or radio on during work time - music (preferably without words) is OK, but talk and lyrics can be very distracting.
  • Ensure that you are all getting quality sleep - no screens before bedtime.
  • Keep a water bottle to hand so that your child can stay hydrated without lots of 'I need a drink' distraction.
  • Use the interactive platform to stay in touch with your child's teacher and alert them to any difficulties.
