Remote Learning - Year 2 - 2020 - 2021

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Miss Tranter, Mrs Barker-Trett, Mrs Bandey, Miss Jokuliene, Mrs Zarzycka and Mrs Jwanczuk are still looking after all of the children during this lock-down. Like the previous lock-down, they will contact you to check that everything is going well and to see if there is anything else we can do to help. Furthermore, they will be also be available through Google Classroom marking the children's work and answering questions and Class Dojo.

Our learning at Briar Hill Primary School for Year 2 has now switched to Google Classroom online platform We are also using Microsoft TEAMS to deliver Live lessons. Our Remote LIVE Lessons Microsoft TEAMS Timetable is available in the Remote Learning Provision section. The provision at school mirrors the online offer. 

As well as Microsoft TEAM live lessons, home learning booklets, videos, voice over presentations and lesson introductions can be found on Google Classroom. This is our primary platform for remote learning as allows teachers (us) to provide tailored sessions for your child created to help make their learning experience at home similar to that at school with inclusive, supportive instructions and an opportunity to feedback once the work has been submitted. 

If children are self-isolating, they MUST still complete work daily following the timetable of their class and return ALL work through Google Classroom, so that the teacher can give summary feedback about areas for improvement. 

If the year group bubble has to close, children MUST move to remote learning and continue to follow the timetable.

Below is our remote learning timetable prevision which follows our blended learning of both Microsoft Teams LIVE Lessons, recorded sessions and booklets which reflects what is going on in school.

Remote Learning Timetable - Year 2

Please remember you know your child best and can plan when it is the most effective time to sit down and complete the tasks.  But there is an expectation that each child will participate with learning for 3 hours each day. Do not forget to tune into our Live Lessons as seen on our Remote Learning Page. Each week a link will be sent out to you via Class Dojo and also available on your Google Classroom. Below you will find more activities to help at home which links with our Remote Learning Blended Curriculum offer at Briar Hill Primary School.
