Recovery Curriculum at St John and St Francis Church School
Due to the ‘Lock-Down’ period that we have all experienced, it is essential that we provide all our children with the essential learning from their previous Year Group Summer Term, to enable them to progress forward equally, while also providing opportunities to challenge and enhance the learning of children who are ready to deepen their understanding of the skills and knowledge gained from the Home Learning provided during the Lock-Down period.
Our goal at St John and St Francis Church School is to have provided all the ‘essential learning’ from a child’s previous Summer Term Year Group and completed all the learning for the new Year Group by the end of this Academic Year (20/21).
Our Recovery Curriculum will encompass the following with the child at the heart of it:
2020/21 Recovery Curriculum Timetable:
A full curriculum was provided each day for pupils throughout lockdown through Tapestry for EYFS and Microsoft TEAMS for Y1 – Y6. Teachers provided uploaded work, Teaching PowerPoints, Curriculum Teaching video for example, White Rose and Literacy Shed, BBC Bitesize, recorded videos of them teaching and live sessions too. Any pupils who were not able to access remotely online were provided with ‘paper-based learning’ that was either collected, delivered by hand or posted, and this was provided on a fortnightly basis. All work submitted was marked and/or feedback given to the pupils with next steps learning where relevant.
At the end of the summer, Teachers reviewed their summer term curriculum and have highlighted in yellow any Learning Objectives that were delivered before lockdown but that would have been revisited in the summer term to further secure learning.
They also highlighted in red the Learning Objectives that were taught/learning provided for during lockdown.
From the start of the Autumn Term 2020 Teachers are using these statements to analyse our progression grids to identify the essential learning that needs to be covered ensuring that pupils are ‘ready to progress’ and ‘catch up’ any lost learning due to lock-down by Summer 2021 where possible.
