Ainthorpe Primary School is a happy place for children to learn and make friends.

Remote Learning Year 4

Remote learning can be found via Google Classroom. Miss Redmond and Miss Mawson are splitting the time spent in the classroom (with Ms Spelman) as well as online with support from Mrs Cundill. Online videos, tutor time lessons and assemblies are also scheduled throughout the week to help and support your child as well as celebrate their achievements. 

Our teachers and teaching assistants will contact all families on a regular basis to check-in and see how everyone is as well as offering any support to assist with learning during this time. You can still get in touch with teachers between these times via Class Dojo or via the Tutor Time on MS Teams. 

You all know your child better than anybody else and the timetable below is suggested. Plan appropriate times when they can sit down and complete their work. The expectation is that each child will participate in a minimum of four hours of remote learning each day (in KS2 classes) but make sure that they take regular breaks throughout the day in order that they maintain focus during learning time. 

If children are self-isolating, they still need to complete work daily following the timetable of their class and return 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 will move to remote learning and continue to follow the timetable.
