If parents are happy for students to cook and have your ingredients, students should be ready for their normal practical lesson. If they are not able to complete the practical, they will still need to join the live lessons
Length of Live Lessons / Home Learning Assignments
We are very grateful for the feedback which we have received from parents on our Remote Learning offer, the vast majority of which has been overwhelmingly positive. We are continuously looking to refine and improve what we do, and this is obviously a new way of doing things for all of us!
Some of the feedback we have received has indicated that students are finding it overwhelming having 5 x 1hr Live Lessons each day, leaving not quite enough time for breaks and ‘digital detox’. We will therefore be shortening our lessons, and aiming to provide more independent work for students, whilst still allowing our students the opportunity to have that all important face-time with their teachers for instruction, dialogue, questions, and motivation.
We would also like to clarify that as a general rule, our teachers will not be setting additional Home Learning assignments above and beyond the work set in lessons. There may be occasions where some preparation or consolidation work is necessary (especially at Sixth Form) but we are conscious of the juggling act which all families are currently facing and wish to make learning as manageable as possible for everyone involved.
We will shortly be releasing a survey for parents and students to complete to give us further feedback on how we can support our students and their families with learning at home.
