Home learning at Skelmanthorpe Academy
During these difficult times our aim is to ensure that children are still able to access and engage in a meaningful education should they be required to self-isolate, or in the event of a school/year group closure. We understand that focused learning whilst at home can be a challenge and some of you may be accessing online learning tools for the first time, our help guides and video tutorials are available to help you and your children to navigate through these unprecedented times successfully. These can be found on our Website and will be shared on Class Dojo in the event of closure.
In the event of a school or class closure, children will be able to engage in their schoolwork through dedicated access to the school Google Drive and Class Dojo from home. They will have the opportunity to access lessons that are being taught in class, via videos, power points and links shared by the class teacher.
School will use a blended package to support your child’s learning using Purple Mash, Timetables Rockstars, White Rose (Password protected) and Oak Academy, alongside learning that is taking place in the classroom. This will be updated on a weekly basis and in the event of a closure, a link to your child’s folder will be shared and you will be directed to the activities and suggested time table for each day, alongside links to videos and links to support their activities.
- You will then upload the work your child completes to their portfolio on Class Dojo, so it can be shared with their class teacher.
- There is an expectation that your child accesses the home learning for the same amount of time that they would be in school and we will be monitoring this, in the event of closure
- If you are unable to access on-line planning and resources, then please contact school and hard copies will be made available to you.
- Should school/class bubble close you will be able to contact your child’s class teacher via Dojo should you need help and we will be contacting you on a weekly basis, to ensure that you are managing with the work set.
