This term our teaching and learning model will be very different to what our school
community is used to and the staff have been very busy learning how to use new tools and
Teachers will be starting the online/remote learning activities with your child using
We will be constantly monitoring and evaluating what is working and we will no doubt
make adjustments. We will learn what are the best ways to deliver content and stay
connected with each other.
Our guiding principles for this new online/remote learning environment are:
We recognise that every home is different. Where possible, it’s important to provide a quiet and comfortable learning space. Your child may have a regular place for doing home learning under normal circumstances, but this space may not be suitable for an extended period of time.
For some families, having all children around one central table may work best. Where possible, home learning should take place in a space your family shares. For example, a lounge room or dining room. These spaces are preferable over a bedroom, where it can be isolating for your child and supervision can be more challenging.
The learning space should be a place that can be quiet at times and that has a strong internet signal, (where
possible) and where you or another adult is present and monitoring your children’s learning, especially whilst online.
Start and end each day with a 'check-in'. Encourage regular exercise/brain breaks. Options could include exercise, DVDs, apps, dancing, floor exercises, yoga, walking around the garden or using home exercise equipment. For example: a stationary bicycle, basketball hoop, or other sporting equipment.
Encourage healthy eating habits and drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Keep normal bedtime routines for younger children. You should expect the same from your older primary aged children as this will be key to keeping them well rested and ready to learn each day.
It’s important that you set these kinds of expectations as soon as learning from home begins, rather than several days later if you notice your child is struggling and feeling confusion which they may do it they do not have a consistent routine.

The Sound Waves synthetic phonics approach focuses on the process of synthesising, using sound-to-letter strategy which acknowledges that sounds can be represented more than one way in written form. This approach focuses first on phonemes, then explores the letters that represent these sounds.
