Whilst your child is off school, this timetable will help to keep them engaged in school work.

There will be 3 lessons led by their teacher throughout the day and will be up to an hour in length. These lessons will either be live or recorded, or use videoed lessons from providers such as Oak National Academy or White Rose Maths. The lessons will follow the curriculum children would have received if they were in school.

Teachers will send you a zoom link to the lessons so please check emails daily. If your child can’t access the lessons at these times, the videos can be found on your Purple Mash blog and you can watch them later (how to access Purple Mash - https://youtu.be/Zd17pNRzG6s)

Home-Learning Timetable January 2021

9.15 – Lesson 1

10.30 – Lesson 2

LUNCH

1pm (Y5/6 1.30pm) – Lesson 3

Each day there will be an English/Phonics lesson, a Maths lesson and a Topic lesson. We will register your child at the beginning of each lesson so please join on time! Your teacher may do additional zoom sessions and there are additional tasks to complete on Purple Mash, such as spellings and reading comprehension.

Your teacher will tell you how to record any work – this may be on paper or on Purple Mash.

Please use the Purple Mash blog to share your work with your teacher and ask any questions if you need help. Teachers will give children feedback on the work they upload and give advice on ways to improve.

Reception and KS1 children are expected to spend up to 3 hours learning each day. KS2 children are expected to spend up to 4 hours learning each day. This is made up of live or video lessons and jobs set by the teacher – they may be on-screen activities or more practical tasks.

Your child’s teachers will be monitoring the blogs until 4pm each night – if work is uploaded after this, it will be commented on the next morning.

 

Nursery

Nursery is open, however many of you have chosen to keep your child at home at present. Whilst not in school, this timetable will help to keep them engaged in learning.

When in Nursery, your child learns through a mixture of short, carpet-time teaching sessions and planned play opportunities. Therefore, their home-learning offer is a little different to that of older children:

  1. There will be 3 lessons led by their teacher throughout the week. The lessons will follow the curriculum children would have received if they were in school. They will include story-time, counting and singing activities, with some phonics practise too.

Teachers will send you a zoom link to the lessons so please check emails frequently. If your child can’t access the lessons at these times, the videos can be found on your Purple Mash blog and you can watch them later (how to access Purple Mash - https://youtu.be/Zd17pNRzG6s)

 

It is really important that your child joins in with home learning every day. If there are any problems at all, please give us a call or send us an email (office@belfield.rochdale.sch.uk)

 


 

We have already been in touch with those of you who have informed us that you cannot access a device or the internet and hopefully we have found a solution that works for you.  If we can’t help with a device, or this doesn’t suit your child’s needs, we will put together learning packs and booklets for you to collect – we will inform you when these are ready to collect. These work packs will contain similar work to the work children receive in class or in online lessons.

If your child has special needs, the work will be tailored to their specific next steps and some activities may be play-based. We will endeavour to ensure continuity in the support your child receives from outside agencies, though some of these sessions and meetings, may need to be online.

It is important that children do their best to access the work provided – if you need any help at all, please don’t hesitate to give us a ring.

Zoom Calls

In line with Safeguarding procedures, Zoom video calls may be recorded – if you would like further information about this, please give us a ring.

PLEASE KEEP CAMERAS ON WHEN CHILDREN ARE ON ZOOM LESSONS.

Please treat a conversation with school staff whilst at home, in the same way as you would if you were in school – wear appropriate clothing, ensure there are no distractions, wait your turn to talk.

We would recommend an adult is in ear-shot of the call.
