Learning From Home

January Lockdown

Remote learning offer

This updated information explains the provision we are making for children during the current national Lockdown.

School is currently open to children of Key Workers and Vulnerable children only. If you are a Key Worker and require a place in school for your child please email: keyworkers@baguleyhall.manchester.sch.uk from your work address.

At Baguley Hall Primary School we aim to teach the same curriculum remotely and in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects. For example, PE.

All children have access to live lessons each day for Maths, Literacy and Topic. These lessons are conducted over Zoom.

The live lessons at home mirror the teaching in school.

The Zoom classroom will be available throughout the day, apart from lunchtime. The Zoom teacher will inform you when this is. Children can return to the room and ask for support or groups of children might be invited to return to complete different smaller group activities. 

Each child is assigned a Zoom room to enter. The meeting IDs and passcode are sent via e mail and are available from the school office or your child’s classteacher.

Parents have been provided with a Zoom Charter which shares the expectations of individuals in live lessons. Children will be reminded of these when they start remote learning and they will be referred to throughout online sessions.

A copy of this document is provided below.

Live Lesson Times

  • Year 5 and 6 – 9am, 11am, 1pm
  • Year 3 and 4 – 9.30am, 11.30am, 1.30pm
  • Year 1 and 2 – 10am, 12pm, 2pm
  • Nursery and Reception – 10.30am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm

Children are expected to engage in each Zoom activity and upload all completed work to the school VLE. https://baguleyhall.manchester.sch.uk/service/util/login  A video of how to upload tasks is provided below.

During each live session a register will be taken. If children have not attended a session parents will be contacted. Where children continue to miss live lessons and not engage with their learning, information will be passed to the Children and Families Team so they can offer further support.

To safeguard the children and adults in the zoom, all sessions are recorded. These recordings are stored securely and will only be converted for viewing if necessary to address a safeguarding concern. They will be kept for 12 months and then deleted. 

In addition to the daily Zoom lessons and related activities, children will also be set differentiated activities to complete independently. For each of these tasks children will either submit their completed work, complete a quiz, provide a comment on their task or complete a daily log.

For every piece of work that children submit they will be provided with written or verbal feedback.

As per the Government guidelines, children in Key Stage 1 are expected to complete a minimum of 3 hours remote learning per day and in Key Stage 2 children a minimum of 4 hours remote learning per day.

Any vulnerable/key worker children attending school who need to isolate will be able to access the remote sessions for their year group. Similarly, children of key workers who do not need to attend school every day will join the remote lessons on the days when they are learning from home.

To help support children learning at home exercise books can be collected from the school office. These will have all the information children need to log in to their Zoom room, VLE and TT Rockstars (Y2-Y6) accounts.

 

Support with technology

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. If you cannot access online resources due to no internet/incompatible devices, please inform school as soon as possible so alternative arrangements can be made for your child.

 

How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:

- differentiated learning tasks  will be set on the VLE

- where differentiated learning tasks are not appropriate, individual plans will be created

- opportunity at the end of every zoom lesson for input to be taught again to individuals with opportunities for more interaction, where the task will be broken down into smaller steps 

- zoom rooms remain open all day for parents and/or their children to speak with the teacher about any areas of difficulty

- any children who were working with external agency professionals in school (e.g. those who would have had face-to-face speech and language therapy) will have online teletherapy sessions arranged

 

Individuals Isolating

Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school. To support individuals we will be continuing to use our schools Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). 

To log in you can click the `log in` section at the bottom right corner of the screen or follow this link https://baguleyhall.manchester.sch.uk/service/util/login

If you have forgotten your child's log in please contact the school office or email their class teacher and they will send this to you.  If you cannot access online resources due to no internet/incompatible device, please inform school so alternative arrangements can be made for your child.

Individual work will be set for your child based on the learning they are missing at school. We will be complementing our resources on the platform with those from Oak National Academy.  The Oak National Academy has been created by teachers, specifically to support pupils’ learning at home. It is backed by the Department for Education and supports children from Reception – Year 6. To access the Oak National Academy there will be a link for each activity on your child’s log in page on the VLE.

The type of activities that children will be completing are quizzes, videos and a variety of written tasks. When children have completed their tasks they need to share their work on the VLE and their teacher or another adult in school will mark it. For younger children you might want to ask your child what they want to say and type their responses into the task box. In this box you can also upload any pictures of the work that children have completed for these activities. The video below will show you how this should look when you log in to the VLE.

As well as the work set on the VLE  we would like to encourage all children in Reception – Year 6 to spend at least 15 minutes a day on TTRockstars and/or Numbots.
