Remote/Blended Learning

Remote Learning (Spring Term 1)

The leadership team and staff of Essex Primary School are committed to providing all pupils high quality remote learning: what is taught to pupils at home. 

We offer the same comprehensive curriculum remotely as we do in school, wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have set expectations for the work children MUST complete, SHOULD complete and COULD complete (creative project based learning over time based around our Big Idea for this term, Spacetime) as we recognise the need for flexibility in the way children are accessing their learning during this period.  Timetables have been pinged to parents as a guide for how to structure the day.

 

MUST SHOULD COULD
The expectation is that all pupils MUST:

  1. Attend all live zoom sessions. 
  2. Complete all tasks on google classroom for each subject based on their timetable.
The expectation is that all pupils SHOULD:

1. Try the extension tasks daily.

The expectation is that all pupils COULD:

1.  Complete their class project set on Google Classroom over time. 

2.  Share their projects back at school once lockdown is over.
