Below are some of the comments from Foundation stage parents on the remote learning that was offered during the 2 week self isolation closure due to COVID- 19
“These videos (daily phonics and maths) were amazing, I don’t feel like we missed out being at home. My child was happy to engage: it’s being able to video’s at any time was helpful as I’m a key worker”
” The pack was full of different and fun activities”
“I found these (weekly phone calls) really helpful as I could check we were doing everything correctly
“A mixture of lessons where we can see the teacher and board and others where “Close up” work was carried out was a nice change so the children had the best of both. The home calls and doorstep visits was a lovely touch.
Also having a teacher who is understanding and sympathetic when homeschooling doesn’t go to plan, I was always made to feel we achieved something at home even on the less productive days. We had advice on different techniques as not every child is the same”
“I personally really found it easy to access the online work and videos from the website. It was very helpful and kind of the class teacher to call and explain the work and situation. ”
” My child understands number and was really happy to do homework on the Ipad”
“Everything was nice and simple to understand and the class teacher also called and asked if i was able to understand
and access everything OK. The remote learning is fine and I don’t think there’s anything extra needs to be done. Thank you!
“My child really enjoyed watching video, it helped him a lot, he likes doing home work.
“We are delighted to say the teachers have been absolutely remarkable. They were in constant contact with ourselves to make sure kids learning is going well. The teachers have been very supportive and made sure they were available. Teachers have made an outstanding effort by recording and uploading videos. We sow our gratitude to our teacher you are doing an amazing job”
