Remote Learning – Year 4

Learning for children who are self isolating in Year 4

We are sorry that your child cannot be in school due to self isolation, however if they are feeling well learning is available for your child to complete.

Learning will be provided in 2 ways:

Online

A work pack either sent home with your child or delivered in the post.

Online Learning

We are using Google Classrooms to access OAK Academy.

Each day we would like children to complete an English, Maths and a Topic (Foundation subject) lesson from Oak Academy. Once completed this can be turned in on Google classrooms for your child’s teacher to see.

How does my child access Google Classrooms?

All the children have a school Google Account, the details should be stuck into their reading record but in case they have misplaced this, the login details for each child are very simple.

Username  firstname.surname2023@holbrookprimary.com

The password links to the child’s date of birth DD/MM/YY and takes the format:

 DDPasswordMM 

Make sure that the capital letter P is used for Password!

So for John Smith, whose birthday is 16th June – it would be

john.smith2023@holbrookprimary.com

16Password6

On a desktop or laptop your child will need to log into Google Classrooms on Google Chrome and select the correct subject Classroom.

If your child only has access to a tablet or phone they can still join in if you download the free Google Classroom and Google Meet Apps.

If you need any help with logging in please mail contactyear4@holbrook.coventry.sch.uk 

The children have been practising using Google Classroom in computing and class time so it would be great if lots of them could join us ‘virtually’.

I do not have a device for my child to access online learning?

If you have access to the internet and wifi, school can provide a Chromebook for the duration of your child’s self isolation. Please contact school and we will arrange for you to have a device.

What to do if you cannot join Google Classrooms because you do not have wifi access for a device.

Each child is provided with a work pack containing English and Maths learning for your child to complete independently.

This should be completed over the week and a new pack will be posted out for the second week.

Once back in school, your child can bring their learning in for the teacher to see.

Reading

It is important that your child reads everyday, so please encourage them to read their home reader or a book that they enjoy. They can read this on their own or to a family member.

What happens if my child’s bubble is closed for self isolation?

In the event of a class being closed there will be a class assembly every school day with a message from a member of staff asking how your child is, they will also explain the learning for the day.

This will be held in the Collective Time class, just click to join. It is always a good idea to remind your child to join the meeting with mute on!

During this period of self isolation, your child will be able to communicate directly with staff on google classrooms using the chat function in the lesson during this time.

We look forward to seeing your child back in school soon.
