Home Learning Update

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Due to the ongoing requirements of self-isolation to reduce transmission rates of Covid 19, we wanted to update parents and carers on current provision of offsite ‘Home Learning’. Our overriding aim throughout this very difficult period is to ensure our students make the best possible progress at Ercall Wood Academy even when they are unable to enter the building and access their usual lesson delivery.

 

Students are already familiar with accessing and using SMHW (Show My Homework) and we will continue to use this platform to deliver our home learning.

 

Students who are self-isolating due to shielding or self-isolating due to exposure to Covid19

 

Ercall Wood Academy will ensure that students have access to the essential knowledge that will be taught in lessons through strategies including:

 

  • Classwork topic resources uploaded onto SMHW (Show My Home Work).
  • Access to online learning tools, such as MyMaths, Oak Academy, Educake and GCSE Pod.
  • Formative assessments through quizzes and self-assessment.
  • The work for each subject will be accessible through SMHW (appears as red in the student ‘to do’ list) or can be accessed directly by students on SharePoint using this link. Students will need to login with their school account to access these resources.

If a whole year group or a class bubble is asked to self-isolate at home due to exposure to Covid19

 

If the academy makes the decision to send a year group or class bubble home to self-isolate for 14 days, all students will receive their lessons in line with their usual school timetable. Ercall Wood Academy will ensure that students have access to the essential knowledge that will be taught in lessons through strategies including:

 

  • Lessons on SMHW following the students timetable (Show My Home Work).
  • Access to online learning tools, such as MyMaths, Oak Academy, Educake and GCSE Pod.
  • Formative assessments through quizzes and self-assessment.

 

We will continue to keep you informed of any changes which will affect you and your child via our school website and email system.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

 

Mr McCluskey

Assistant Principal
