As a school, we have decided to utilise Oak National Academy: the online classroom made by teachers, for teachers. Oak Academy provides high-quality video lessons and resources are available throughout 2020/21. The internet has revolutionised the way we work, play, communicate, administrate and importantly, learn. The digital world has taken away almost all limits on education. No longer are we limited to learning what's available to us in a physical classroom. Access to a computer or a tablet/ smartphone enables us to tap into more information than we could possibly imagine. The internet hasn't just opened up unlimited research opportunities, it has allowed us to teach and learn in a comprehensive manner wherever we are in the world.
With an uncertain year ahead, Oak Academy can ease our remote and in-school learning. Of course, we still have our platform for sharing via Facebook and as class teachers, we will signpost you to specific work documents and utilise this. Last time we had a lockdown, work packs were readily available on request from school but also different teachers had different ways of doing things ie: some teachers had a Facebook group which allowed for the upload of documents and other teachers would email across documents. Whatever happens from now, we're here to support every parent, as they support every pupil, as always.
For the marking of Oak academy work, please use the school email address provided on the Year 4 website page – this will allow you to send us work back or email over specific documents. If you are working and learning from home, we love to see and celebrate what you all are up to. In the event of a class/school lockdown, we will set at least 1 piece of English, 1 piece of Maths and 1 piece of topic work per day (this may include Science or work on our class topic which is currently the Rainforests) Work will be signposted via the class facebook page and directed towards the class page on the school website.
We have had great difficulty, as have most Halton schools, with our school website but we are now pleased to say it is fully up and running again and it has allowed for the posting of documents. As always, please stay in contact with us and if you have any questions in regards to the use of Oak academy – please do not hesitate to ask. As always, I will respond to emails and messages sent via fb as soon as possible. Thanks for your continuing support and cooperation.
