Primary Learning

Dear Trinity families,

Since the end of the last academic year, we have made significant changes to our provision to ensure it is in line with government guidance and has taken parental feedback into account.

The implementation of home learning will consist of two phases.

Phase 1

This phase will begin on Tuesday 8th September.

Learning will be accessed through links uploaded to the school website under this home learning tab.

The tasks will also be emailed to all families.

The most notable changes in this stage are as follows:

  • All classes will be using the Oak Academy online learning platform (as well as other online resources) to access lessons that directly link to our curriculum. Oak Academy provides high quality video explanations and curriculum resources and has been recommended by the DfE.
  • Teachers will be giving feedback on learning sent to them via teacher’s email between 3:00pm and 4:00pm from Monday to Friday to motivate pupils, provide next steps and inform future sessions.
  • Our home learning weekly plan clearly sets out each day’s expectations with direct links to lessons for ease of parent and child use.
  • Every class will receive an introduction and zoom meeting with their new class teacher.

Phase 2

This phase will begin by Monday 14th September, although this may be sooner if all pupils have accessed our learning platform.

Learning will be accessed through the Class Dojo learning platform.

The most notable changes in this stage are as follows:

  • All class teachers will provide high quality video explanations created by them, supplemented by video and curriculum resources provided by the Oak Academy and other high quality resources.
  • Learning tasks and pupil responses will be uploaded daily.
  • Feedback will be given by the class teacher through the Class Dojo learning platform to continue to motivate pupils, provide next steps and inform future sessions.

Families will receive further information on how to access the Class Dojo platform later this week.

In the case of any further localised lockdowns, home learning will begin at Phase 2.

Whilst no remote learning will ever replicate the quality of what our teachers can offer in the classroom, we are very pleased with the improvements we have made to our systems for home learning. We understand how challenging teaching is and we thank you for your ongoing support as you act as parent-teachers over the next seven days.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

 

Yours sincerely

Darren Janes
