Why would my child have to learn remotely?
Your child may be Remotely Learning in the case of school closure, or if your child or family are having to self-isolate as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak across the UK.
In the event of children working remotely, Comber Grove Primary School offers a well-sequenced curriculum where knowledge and skills are built incrementally. We recognise that younger pupils and some pupils with SEND may not be able to access remote education without adult support and so we are working with families to continue to deliver a broad and ambitious curriculum accessible to all.
There are several ways your child can learn from home. At Comber Grove, we use ClassDojo as our main Remote Education Platform, and a safe place to contact and message the Class Teachers and Leadership Team, with any questions or worries.
This is our Digital Remote Education Platform, which every child in the school has an account. Letters with your parental access code have gone out and a big thank you to those who have already joined!
Teachers will post each day with a range of activities for children to complete either in their Remote Learning Books or submitted online. Find out more details here: https://www.combergrove.co.uk/remote-education/

2. Times Tables Rockstars and Prodigy Maths
Every child in the school has Times Tables Rockstars and Prodigy Maths account. These are amazing platforms for the children to login and practice essential mathematical skills. These logins will have been sent home with your children's Remote Learning Books.
Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.
3. BBC Bitesize
The BBC has today launched an education package across TV and online, featuring celebrities and teachers, helping to keep children learning at home and supporting parents.
What happens if my child finds the learning too difficult?
Our first piece of advice to parents is that ALL children find elements of learning challenging at times so try not to worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. If this happens, get in touch!
