Remote Learning - Year 1
Our teachers are still looking after your children during this lock-down. Each week, we will contact you to check that everything is going well and to see if there is anything else we can do to help. Also, they will be available through Google Classroom, and Class Dojo, marking the children's work and answering questions. Please see a suggested remote learning timetable at the bottom of this page.
If children are self-isolating, there is an expectation that they still complete work daily following the timetable of their class and return ALL work through Google Classroom, so that the teacher can give summary feedback about areas for improvement. If the year group bubble has to close, there is an expectation that children will move to remote learning and continue to follow their timetable.
Each week, we will provide an overview of the work being covered that week (this can also be found on our weekly newsletter on the Remote Learning home page). We will also provide live learning opportunities each week and the timetable for this can be found on the Remote Learning homepage. Please keep a look out for the links which will be posted on Google Classroom and Class Dojo.
If you need to contact us at any point, you can message us on Class Dojo/MCAS or call the school office on 01472 320016.
