Our Virtual Learning Offer
During these challenging times it is our aim to provide a learning offer which is engaging, supportive and relevant.
The curriculum content shared with pupils and parents at home is also delivered to the pupils who are attending
school, making our curriculum offer equitable. Please see below the key principles we are using to deliver our
The lessons which the children in each year group complete at home are the same as those undertaken at school
to ensure the same learning is covered. New work is set each day and includes the core subjects of Maths and
English as well as a range of none-core subjects such as geography, design and technology and science. Pupils
are encouraged to take physical exercise each day and resources are available to support this.
The work is shared through the Class Dojo platform with the format of the work being tailored to the needs of
specific year groups. All class teachers provide a clear daily overview of the work to be undertaken by their class.
This overview also gives access to the resources required each day. These resources include video instruction
developed by national providers such as White Rose Maths and the Oak Academy. These can be accessed at
any time, paused when required and re-watched. Worksheets are shared which support these lessons as well as
useful links to external websites. Alongside these resources the children have access to interactive online
resources such as Times Tables Rock Stars, Numbots and Accelerated Reader (KS2).
Each week the head teacher shares a collective worship video and reads a favorite book. Once a week the
school offers ‘Creative Wednesday’. This is a themed day focusing on the key skills of a single subject. The aim
of these days is to offer variety; ensure the curriculum is broad; and develop better knowledge, skills and
understanding in a specific subject. ‘Creative Wednesdays’ develop a range of skills including research, enquiry
and artistic skills.
Communication and support
The Class Dojo platform allows direct communication between home and school. Each day the class has a
designated member of staff who offers support and reviews/ comments on the work which the children have
undertaken. Each week the class teacher hosts a class Zoom call where pupils can interact with their class mates
and participate in a range of activities, dependent on the age of the pupils. Smaller Zoom meetings are offered to
specific groups of pupils identified by the school. Where the school identifies that specific pupils are not engaging
with the virtual learning offer, these pupils are contacted directly and additional support is offered.
