Most children will return to school as part of the phased return from March 8th. Up until Easter, teachers will continue to post remote learning resources to Satchel:One, similar to the pattern of the latest lockdown.
All children, whether in school or working remotely, will follow their school timetable which retains the broad and balanced curriculum we value at Ferndown Middle School.
Lessons are typically 50 minutes long.
The expected learning time for Key Stage 2 is 4 hours (per day)
The expected learning time for Key Stage 3 is 5 hours (per day)
Children will require a laptop or another suitable internet connected device to access their remote learning. They will primarily access their learning through our online learning platform, Satchel:One. Individual login sheets have been provided to all pupils and support is available if needed.
Children will access each lesson, via Satchel:One, and watch the pre-recorded teacher input. Please note, from March 8th students will not be able to discuss the lesson live with the teachers, however, they can still message them and the teacher will respond in an appropriate timeframe.
Children complete the work set during the lesson time and then submit for class teacher review and feedback.
Children need to be provided with an appropriate working environment. Whilst parents are not expected to teach their child, we ask them to encourage and support them to stay on task and focused.
This video provides some helpful advice for support remote learning at home.
