At Monteagle, we have a comprehensive and exciting remote learning offer.
Please take some time to look at the diagram below to see what we are offering to our children and families.
Daily Live Lessons
Each class will have a minimum of four hours learning each day that will include reading, writing, maths and topic work. All English, Phonics (EYFS-Year3), Maths, PE and Music as well as story time/PSHE lessons will be delivered as live lessons. Teachers will create live lesson links in Zoom and share them with children via Google Classroom.
Teachers will deliver these sessions to all pupils, including those in school who will be supported by adults in class. You will receive a letter via Parent Mail with all of the necessary logins and links that your child will need each day.
Your child may also be asked to join in interventions which will be delivered by our support staff via Zoom. This will further help to support children in their learning and ensure they continue to make progress.
Below is a timetable for online learning in Year 2.
We will be gathering together as a school twice a week for assemblies. Links will be sent via Parent Mail, Dojo and Google Classroom.
Singing assemblies will run every Thursday from 2.00-2.30
Achievement Assembly will be Monday 1.45-2.15
These assemblies, help to keep our school community together. All are welcome and encouraged to join.
Early Years & Key Stage One
If your child is in Nursery, Reception, Year One or Year Two we appreciate access to online learning might be a little more difficult and ask that you support your child with logging in etc.
From Tuesday 5th January our teams will be delivering all core sessions via zoom . All other teaching input and tasks will be posted and set using Class Dojo in KS1 and Tapestry in EYFS as normal which will include daily phonics sessions!
Key Stage Two
Children in Key Stage Two are more familiar with computers and other electronic devices, but may still need some adult support to start with.
For these children, live lessons will begin Tuesday 5th January via Zoom and Google Classroom. Following taught sessions delivered by their class teacher, children will have time to complete tasks at home independently before logging in to the next scheduled session.
In the ARP, we understand how important it is for children to follow structures and routines; we have made every effort to ensure children can follow these same structures and routines at home and engage in their daily learning.
Our children will be able to take part in their daily greetings sessions using Zoom, allowing them to still be virtually present in the class and participate in daily greetings activities. In the afternoons, children will have the opportunity to hear a story read by their class lead which is always a joy to hear.
The fantastic teaching staff have also uploaded a wide array of interactive videos for children to follow. There are videos on counting objects, ‘letter of the day’ using phonics, active PE sessions and peaceful yoga. Simply visit the Phoenix homepage and go through the ‘Home Learning’ articles to find the video you wish your child to follow. We have included our weekly planning and resources on this page, giving you full access to the lessons we teach in school and providing the opportunity for children to follow their daily lessons from home.
Remember to visit the ‘Latest News’ section on the Phoenix homepage, as we offer great tips and valuable training sessions for parents who wish to incorporate the same systems we use in school at home.
You can access Google Classroom via this link- https://classroom.google.com
This is where your child will see posts from their teachers. Posts may contain links to websites, classwork set by your child’s teacher or simple communications between all the members of the class. Posts are always monitored by your child’s teacher, as are any accompanying comments made by individuals, so we ask that children only use this feature if they are asking a question about their work or responding sensibly to a post.
An example of a helpful post from a teacher to her pupils can be found below. Videos will help support children access their work independently. If your child feels that they need a support or further examples or the teacher knows that the class or a group need additional guidance, they will be able to help using way such as this.
Online Safety & Home Learning
In these unprecedented times as children are having to be taught from home, children will be accessing many different mobile devices and computers on a daily basis. Now more than ever we want to work with you as parents and carers to help protect your children when they are online.
