SCHOOL WORK DURING PERIODS OF SELF ISOLATION AND BUBBLE CLOSURE

If your child is unable to attend school due to self-isolating it is important that they carry on with school work. All children who are off but are otherwise well should access the Oak Academy for work relevant to their school year group. https://classroom.thenational.academy/. The themed booklets that have already been sent home will assist you in finding appropriate topics for your child from the classroom.

In the event that a class bubble closes all work will be set on Google Classroom, as it is for homework. All usernames and password have been emailed home already. Work will usually be set the second day of closure this is to allow time for class teachers to prepare the online teaching for the day. Work us set daily and will usually include English, Maths and some Topic focussed work.  

If you have a question concerning using the Google Classroom or the work set there are email addresses set up for each year group, these are:

YN - asktheteacherYN@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

YR - asktheteacherYR@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

Y1 - asktheteacherY1@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

Y2 – asktheteacherY2@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

Y3 – asktheteacherY3@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

Y4 – asktheteacherY4@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

Y5 – asktheteacherY5@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

Y6 – asktheteacherY6@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk

These are monitored several times through the day during a closure period. If you have problems due to not having a laptop or appropriate devices please email office@shawclough.rochdale.sch.uk and we may be able to assist.

Work that is sent out in a bubble closure if mandatory and the work should be submitted on the classroom. We appreciate home education can be difficult so we ask that you have a go at all the work set. If you need assistance with the work or can’t get through it just email the ‘ask the teacher’ address and someone will contact you to assist.
