Year 8 Isolation Work

Overview

To support your child's learning we will be using a blended approach between the National Oak Academy, alongside our own internally built resources. The National Oak Academy classroom has been created by teachers specifically to support pupils’ learning at home. Oak is a free website available at www.thenational.academy and it is backed by the Department for Education.

You can access Oak’s online classroom on any device, you don’t need to log in or remember a password. Your child can access lessons across a range of subjects, which provide four to five hours of learning every day.

Each lesson is delivered by a trained teacher, over a pre-recorded video, and it’s very clear at the start of each session anything you might need (such as pens, paper etc). The lessons are designed to need minimal supervision.

Depending on the date that your child's isolation begins depends on the work that they need to complete - please see below.

If your child is isolating while awaiting a test result then they will catch up in the usual manner when they are back at school, however, they are welcome to use the resources below to support their learning.

During their isolation, students should contact their teachers with any questions they might have, this can be done through RMUnify and their school email account. If they type in the surname of their teacher the system will find the correct email address.

Students should also regularly check SMHW, and complete any work set as it will complement the work the students are doing at home. Any submission should be done virtually either through SMHW (if enabled) or via email.
