The remote curriculum: what is taught to children at home
A child’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of children being sent home?
In key stage 1 and key stage 2 (years 1-6), teachers will set work that the children can access on Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars (TTRS), from previous homework and spellings, through Spelling Shed.
In early years, this will include watching Numberblocks and Alphablocks, counting and sorting activities, singing nursery rhymes and listening to stories.
Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects.
For example, in RWI we may change the Get Writing activity for other reading and writing activities. In art we may change the task to ensure that children will have access to resources at home e.g. clay modelling altered to junk modelling – this may apply to other subjects where the resources required are not easily accessible for the majority at home.
