Continuity of Learning: We will try to ensure that all children are taught effectively throughout this current period of closure and as a result we are publishing the virtual learning plan indicated below. The timing of the (virtual) school day is as follows: PERIOD 1 PERIOD 2 PERIOD 3 PERIOD 4 PERIOD 5 PERIOD 6 08.15 – 08.55 09.10 – 09.50 09.50 – 10.30 10.30 – 11.10 11.30 – 12.10 12.20 – 13.00 Parents will be required to manage the logistics of supervising children either while working from home or while working elsewhere. All members of the DBS Wakra community will do their utmost to provide the best service they can at this time. However, it will be important for us all to be flexible and patient when working online and when deadlines are inevitably missed. All teachers and students must check their email at 7:45 am each day from Sunday to Thursday for a daily briefing notice. Parents can contact the school as usual and their enquiry will be directed accordingly. As a school, we will remain in regular contact with staff, parents and students with at least one daily update on the status of the closure and online learning. Student participation during each day will be tracked as a means of registering learning. Please see below a list of instructions for how your child should continue to access learning during our current school closure: - Independent home learning tasks for students in pre-school, reception, Year 1 & Year 2 will be set via Class Dojo - Independent home learning tasks for students in Year 3 – Year 9 will be set via Google Classroom - Teachers will be available daily to provide independent home learning tasks and receive completed tasks as well as offer support, guidance and feedback during working hours - Teachers will keep a daily record of which students have participated each day in online learning - Early Years Maths & Phonics tasks will be set daily - Primary Maths, Reading & Writing tasks will be set daily - Tasks via online platforms such as Literacy Planet & MyMaths will also be provided for Key Stage 1&2 - Notifications relating to already published reading lists will be made - Primary Science, foundation and PE tasks will be supplied weekly for Key Stage 1&2 - Parents or children can send completed tasks back to their teacher in various forms and can liaise with their teacher about how to do this; this could be a photo, work uploaded on google classroom or sent via email. - Secondary subject specific tasks will be set daily - Tasks via subject specific online platforms will also be provided - Notifications relating to already published reading lists will be made - Parents or children can send completed tasks back to their teacher in various forms and can liaise with their teacher about how to do this; this could be a photo, work uploaded on google classroom or sent via email.
