School Closure - Learning From Home

To see video link for overview of our remote learning strategy click here - Click Here

As a school we have made available remote learning packs for all classes. These are for pupils that are currently shielding / isolating or in the event of another school closure.

Your child’s learning is important to us and we want to provide them with an effective remote learning strategy to build upon their learning in school this year and address key gaps in learning in the event of a school closure.

Aims of remote learning
• Establish measures that will reduce the effects of being off school and try to minimize missed work across various subjects / qualifications in order to give pupils the best chance to show their full potential when they return to school
• Support pupils physical and social development, and mental wellbeing during school closure

What is the plan for remote learning?
• We would like pupils to engage in daily online lessons via zoom (see letter for more information). This is an opportunity to address basic skills in each subject area and support pupils wellbeing.
• We would also like pupils to complete the ‘home learning menu’s’ with parents and carers at home. These menu tasks are planned to address curriculum content this year and support learning missed in school

Where can I find the ‘home learning menu’ for my child?

  • Please click on the links next to your child's class on this page

  • All pupils have been issued with a remote learning book which has a paper copy of the home learning menu’s stuck on the inside.

Other information:

  • Your child will be provided with an exercise book. Please record pupils work in here. You will also find copies of worksheets linked to pupils home learning menu's. Your child can choose which order to complete the tasks in.

  • Our staff will be looking at class dojo regularly, if you have a question about an activity or require further guidance, please use dojo to contact your child’s subject teacher. If you have not downloaded this app, please do so as soon as possible. Otherwise you can email enquiries@oakwoodacademy.co.uk.

  • Some subjects have created some additional extension activities and we have downloaded large books which contain many different activities that your child can complete. These will be uploaded to our website, so please keep checking it regularly. If you are unable to print from home, use the exercise book provided to complete these activities in.

  • Just to re-iterate, during the closure Oakwood staff will carry out well-being checks by contacting parents/carers/guardians over the phone or on class dojo to support our families through this period. If you receive a phone call, it may come up from an unknown number, this is highly likely to be a member of staff, so please answer or respond to messages, so that we can account for all children. If you have recently changed your number, please contact school as soon as possible to provide us with your most up to date information.

  • Please keep checking the website and class dojo regularly for any further updates.
