Remote learning plan

Primary and Early Learning School

 

We have a primary portal for online learning, Seesaw, which all Primary students are familiar with and use regularly in class as well. Our students participate at home like they do at school. Our students engage each day with all the learning tasks set by our teachers. Teachers are available via email and Seesaw from 09.00 – 15.30 each school day to answer questions, give feedback and support online learning while students are at home. Our parents, of course, support their children by helping them find a space to set up with needed supplies and get started on Seesaw.

For Primary Students in Tots - Kindergarten

Our teachers create a daily ‘interactive-style’ video that is made available on the virtual platform for all students. These videos include a virtual circle time, counting activity, song or rhyme and will introduce the day’s learning engagements.

Additionally, our teachers conduct a daily read aloud, and perform daily learning engagements in language arts, mathematics and unit of inquiry.

Our single subject teachers set at least 1 additional activity each week as well. These activities are available for students to choose from once other daily activities have been completed.

After completion, our students receive meaningful, appropriate feedback on at least one learning engagement a day.

For Primary Students in Grade 1 - Grade 5

Each day by 9 o’clock in the morning the Class Teacher shares a video on the platform welcoming our students and introducing the daily learning engagements.

These daily engagements cover the areas of language arts, mathematics, unit of inquiry and French.

We encourage our students to try and complete all work set but are expected to post a minimum of 2 Language, 2 Mathematics, 2 French and 2 Unit of Inquiry responses or reflections on Seesaw each week.

Our single subject teachers set at least 1 additional activity each week as well. These activities are available for students to choose from once other daily activities have been completed.

After completion, our students receive meaningful, appropriate feedback on at least one learning engagement a day.

Of course, together with our parents, we encourage our children to read every day.

How we recommend our families provide support for their children during remote learning?
  • Set up a daily schedule
  • Create a special area for your child to work on schoolwork
  • Build in regular breaks and lunch time
  • Ensure a balance of computer time and off-line time
  • Ensure your child spends some time outdoors (in the garden etc.)
  • Ensure your child stays active
  • Find ways to engage your children in household activities e.g. cooking and baking (measuring, weighing, following instructions…)
