REMOTE LEARNING PROVISION

During this period of forced partial school closure, we will be providing students with an engaging remote learning provision. Our remote learning provision has been carefully planned and considered and we believe that it will provide students with a high quality learning experience. We expect all students to access and engage with our online provision, whether they are at home or attending our onsite childcare facility.

 

Welcome from Mr Ward

 

Lessons

Lessons will be created using a platform called ‘Screencastify’. This enables staff to utilise screen recording technology to share lesson content with students. These videos will be uploaded to Google Classroom for students to access. Students will all be familiar with how to use Google Classroom as this is a platform we already use on a regular basis in lessons. If your child has not joined the relevant Google Classrooms for any reason, a list of the required joining codes and joining instructions can be found here. Please do spend a few minutes with your child ensuring they can navigate Google Classroom effectively to access the learning resources set by their teachers.

 

School Day

Students will be expected to complete 4 lessons a day, following their timetable which has been updated and can be found in ClassCharts. Each lesson will have a piece of work set that the students will need to complete and submit via Google Classroom. While we want you to encourage your child to be creative, it is also important they continue to have a level of structure in their life. We would therefore recommend they follow this timing of the school day if at all possible.

School Day Timings

 

Daily Challenges

We will also be setting daily challenges that will be shared with students each morning via learning mentor time and will include reading, PE activities, DT activities, Food Tech activities and Drama activities. We would love to see any photos of your child attempting the daily challenge or any other creative task they are proud to have undertaken on our official school twitter account. Please tag @MersthamPark when posting on twitter.

 

Live Learning Mentor Time

As part of our remote learning provision, students are also expected to attend a live learning mentor session from 8:45 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. every day. This will be led by your child's learning mentor and will include assemblies, PSHE sessions, topical news sessions and weekly quiz sessions. Students have been invited to join the Google Classroom for their learning mentor group. Once they are on the relevant Google Classroom, students should click the Google Meet link at the top of the classroom to join the daily session which will be enabled by learning mentors at 8:40 a.m. to allow students to join in time for a prompt start at 8:45 a.m. If students are unable to locate the relevant Google Classroom they can do so by selecting the correct Google Classroom code from this link. As with a normal day at school, any students who are not present in their morning live learning mentor session will be contacted by the office so their absence can be explained. If your child is unwell and therefore not able to attend, please call the absence line as you would normally do on 01737 919491 or email info@mersthamparkschool.org.

 

Support

Teachers will be available during the timetabled lesson times to support students. If a student requires any support they should click on the Google meet link at the top of the relevant Google Classroom to join a video call with their subject teacher. Please be aware, these calls will be recorded to safeguard staff. Students are welcome to remain on the video call for the entire 60 minutes or simply ask a question to clarify their work and leave the call again. Students do not have to join these video calls, they are simply in place to support any students who require it and would like to join. The timing of these support meetings will link directly to students timetables, e.g. Monday lesson 1, if a student has English, their English teacher will be on their classes Google meet for the duration of that lesson.


Should you have any learning related queries during this period of closure, please either email the class teacher directly or the school office (info@mersthamparkschool.org).
