In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of self-isolation and lockdown, St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School has developed the following plan. This plan offers remote learning opportunities whilst also acknowledging that some households have limited access to devices and would require hard-copies of work and resources. We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school.
This plan will be applied in the following instances:
The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document Guidance for Full Opening of Schools. We have also reviewed our provision in light of the Ofsted guidance ‘What is Working Well in Remote Education’.
Daily reading is extremely important for all children. Our children in Reception have access to 'Bug Club' with reading books which have been carefully selected to match their reading fluency. In years 1, 2 and 3 children use 'Oxford Reading Tree' to widen their selection of stage books whilst at home. Years 4-6 have access to reading materials sent by their class teachers. Daily phonics lessons are provided by pre-recorded content from 'Read, Write, Inc.'. Comprehension is taught by the class teachers using assignments on MS Teams. Our children also enjoy hearing their teachers read to them during the daily class meeting.
White Rose Maths
White Rose is our main mathematics scheme across the whole school. There are videos online that link to the maths planning and activities provided.
Oak National Academy
The Department for Education has funded Oak National Academy to provide online video lessons from teachers to teach all children nationally. All schools in the UK are encouraged to promote this excellent initiative.
All children in school and at home will be able to join in with our recorded liturgies. These can be found on MS Teams. We also take part in daily prayer during our live class meetings.
