Home learning online provision for Year 11

Home learning online provision for Year 11

Further to the letter about Year 11 having to isolate until 17th November, please be aware that all lessons activities are set via Google Classroom in line with your child’s normal school timetable.

Teachers and Learning Support Mentors will be present in college, teaching and monitoring classwork for the full length of your child’s timetables lesson. Student learning will take place remotely and follow a blended learning approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for teacher-student interactions. All lesson activities will be uploaded and available in your child’s subject Google Classroom. Registration will take place each lesson. Lesson 1 will begin at 9.15. There will be form time on Mon 16th November at 9.00am.

Please check with your child that they can access the Google Classroom for all their subjects. If any student is struggling to access their Google account they can contact bpain@blessededward.co.uk for help, support and guidance.

Students will experience some live tuition and feedback in each subject through Google Classroom at least once in the week. When leading a live lesson, teachers will spend approximately 15 minutes teaching new or key information and setting tasks. The work set must be uploaded to Google Classroom by the end of the lesson. Teachers will not be delivering a live session for the whole hour, yet they will be present and available to communicate with the students during that time.

Teachers will upload any materials and presentations for the lessons beforehand in Google Classroom and ask students to have them open on their devices as they deliver the lesson.

Below is a list of the different types of teaching and learning activity included as part of the college’s blended learning approach:

  • Live teaching in Google Classroom
  • Pre-recorded voice-over presentations and tasks
  • Quizzes and recall exercises
  • Comprehension activities
  • Providing learning materials such as video and audio files and worksheets
  • Revision activities
  • Setting reading tasks

To support the effectiveness of the remote and blended learning approach, we ask that the students are contactable during the college day, although we accept they may not always be in front of a device the entire time. Students must attend all online lessons and engage in these lessons as they would if they were in school. They must aim to complete work to the deadline set by teachers, seek help if they need it, from teachers or Learning Support Mentors and alert teachers if they are not able to complete work.

If you have any questions or concerns about an aspect of the online provision, then please email me directly on the following address: sthomas@blessededward.co.uk
