Year Four Remote Learning


Remote Learning Plan - Click HERE for full details.

Throughout the time that children are learning at home, parents and children can contact the school if they have any problems accessing home learning or if they have any concerns that they would like to support.  Please contact us by calling the school office or emailing schooloffice@bwjunior.hants.sch.uk

Stage 1

Remote learning at stage 1 can be found in the table below:

Your child's teacher will direct you to the specific lessons most relevant to the days when your child is not at school.

Each day, children will be expected to complete approx.

  • 60-90 minutes of maths
  • 60-90 minutes of English
  • 2 hours of foundation learning
  • a HIIT session with Joe Wicks
  • to read for at least 15 minutes to an adult
  • to complete a 20-minute session on times table rock stars.

This way, learning at home will be equivalent in length to the education taking place in school.

Stage 2

In the event of a class (bubble) having to close and all members of the class having to learn from home, children will initially complete a two-day independent learning plan.

This plan will consist of a set number of online resources which support a relevant key skill or aspect of knowledge across a range of subjects.  This plan will be sufficient to support independent learning for two days.  This two day window will enable your child’s class teacher to start planning for how they will teach the school curriculum to your children online from day 3.

Pre-planned activities will include:

  • a maths and English lesson that challenges children to recall and apply recently taught knowledge and skills
  • two arithmetic papers
  • daily DoodleMaths/DoodleEnglish
  • daily reading for 15 minutes to an adult
  • 20 minutes daily times table rock stars practice
  • a foundation project to be completed across the two days

This work will have been pre-prepared and will enable your child’s class teacher to start planning for how they will teach the school curriculum to your children online.

This two-day independent learning plan will be accessible here

Stage 3

From day three of a class having to self-isolate, class teachers will be ready to teach children the lessons that they would have been having in school.  These will be delivered through ‘Google Classrooms’ and will ensure that children are receiving the same education as their peers who are still in school. 

 Lesson content will be delivered in a variety of ways with some elements of the lesson being taught live and some being filmed in advance so that children can watch teaching inputs before completing their work independently.  Some of the work may be set using videos from Oak Academy and/or White Rose Maths.  Throughout the school day, children will be able to interact with their class teachers who will be able to support and challenge them to ensure that they are making good progress.
