Primary School

Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!

Remote Learning

All remote learning work is set in the Year 6 remote learning page of DB Primary.

This weeks timetable is below:

 

Hour

What we will set:

Support needed from you:

1

We will start the day in the same way everyday by reading a story.  We are starting a children’s version of ‘The Odyssey’ on Monday.  The story will be scanned on to a Power Point and read by Mr Hadfield or Miss Jury.  After each chapter, there will be a multiple choice ‘quiz’ set on DB Primary.  Teachers can see how long pupils took to do the questions and how many they got right.

 

 

The story will not take a full hour and is intended to be a gentle and straight forward start to the day that can be done without adult support.  We would like children to follow this up by completing a task set on MyMaths.  While we can set work, pupils are free to complete any tasks across the whole maths national curriculum.  There are a host of games and quizzes to keep them busy.

We will set one MyMaths each day.  There is a mini lesson that goes along with each task and all tasks are intended to be revision.  Pupils should be able to complete these tasks on their own and will know how many they have got right or wrong.  They are free to repeat the tasks if they struggled.

Pupils will be able to do this work without support and all we ask is that you check in to see how many of the 10 questions they got right.  If it is less than half, we suggest you make them listen and read again and re-take the quiz.

 

We suggest finding out how many they got right for the task and which other games or tasks they have completed.

This session will always be a Maths lesson.  We are following the White Rose Maths Scheme of work.  The scheme has already been adapted for home learning as every lesson comes with a video lesson.  Pupils are used to these and the style of work they are expected to complete.  Pupils can complete these lessons independently.  At the end of the school day pupils can mark their work when the answers are posted.  We wait until the end of the day, as we know not everyone does the maths lesson first thing.

Depending on your child’s ability, you may be able to leave them to get on or they may need you to talk them through the video.

We recommend all parents and carers check the completed task prior to answers being given.  It is also recommended that parents and carers complete the marking.

3

As you can see below, this session will either be Science, Extended Writing or Reading Comprehension.  The Science lesson will be set by Mrs Dudley and are the lessons we complete in school but adapted for remote learning.  Our Extended Writing is based on the curriculum we cover and will involve different genres of writing.  We are currently completing some persuasive writing.  The last session on a Friday will be a Reading Comprehension.  The text and questions are often quite challenging.

Unfortunately this session is often where pupils require the most support.  We find that pupils don’t often produce enough written work, don’t use high enough quality vocabulary or forget to use basic punctuation or capitalisation.  We recommend going through the lesson with your child before they start, getting them started with their writing, walking away and then checking what the final piece is at the end and possibly support editing what they have produced.

4

We will set a ‘Cosmic Yoga’ style Yoga lesson and a ‘Joe Wicks’ style fitness lesson each week for PE.  Pupils do not have to complete these forms of fitness if you have a preferred method of exercise that your child would enjoy.

History, RE, French and Art lessons are the lessons we complete in school but adapted for remote learning. 

All afternoon lessons should require very little support from parents and carers but, as always, we recommend checking what your child has completed at the end.
