Online Learning NewsPosted on: 29/06/2020
Staff at Capital have worked relentlessly to provide high-quality resources for every pupil, in every year group, during the lockdown period. The Capital Online Learning Site is a true testament to the exceptional teaching our pupils experience on a daily basis. Our Capital students have been fortunate to acquire and revise knowledge and develop their skills as they have taken part in online live lessons, completed self-marking assignments, written extended pieces of writing and taken part in creative and physical activities.
A great example of these is the work produced within the context of Black Lives Matter. Students have submitted some fantastic work and teachers have been delighted to see how some of you have gone the extra mile to continue your learning journey from home. In an attempt to help support our pupils’ wellbeing, we have also provided pupils with extra-curricular activities and information, such as ideas for the “spirit” as well as the mind and body and support structures in place for students. We want to take this opportunity to thank all of you, parents, who have supported your students as best as you can in these challenging times for all.
We believe that every child deserves a positive learning experience and should not be disadvantaged if they do not have access to IT facilities at home. With this in mind, our fantastic Pastoral Team have posted workbooks and other resources for pupils to use at home. Year Team Leads and our wonderful support staff have also monitored pupil engagement. We have proudly celebrated many students by awarding the title of ‘Virtual Learner of the Week’.
Lastly, as relationships are the backbone of our Capital Community, teachers and pastoral staff have used the Google Classroom as a platform to contact home. In some cases, regular phone calls have been made so that our pupils know that we are always here for them.
It has been fantastic to welcome some of our students back to school in the last few weeks, and we pray that any further disruptions to learning are minimised as best as possible. We cannot wait to see you all back in school in September!
