Remote Teaching – Continuing Pupils’ Learning
Following government guidelines, Stockport Grammar Junior and Senior Schools have moved to remote learning from the start of the Spring Term. All our Pre-Reception children can still be taught in school and we are delighted to see them each day as well as a small number of Junior and Senior pupils whose parents are key workers.
Our fantastic teaching staff have been fully prepared for this eventuality and have immediately implemented our remote learning programmes. Extensive use is being made of electronic resources to support pupils. Google Meets, Google Classroom, Tapestry, Satchel One and the Pupil Portal are amongst the platforms used.
The school is in regular email contact with parents and pupils; staff are available to provide support, advice and guidance on all matters as though the school were open. Throughout the closure, we will be working with parents to continue pupils’ learning in this difficult time.
We are proud of our strong school community and although apart, together we will stay strong and connected and look forward to returning to school.
Here is a selection of the activities from this week:
Watch this space for regular updates. In the meantime here is a reminder of some of the amazing SGS learning from the first lockdown:
I have to say that I’m really blown away with the level of work, support and care you are providing, it is amazing! I just wanted to let you know how grateful we are as a family and that we really do appreciate all the efforts that you and all your wonderful staff are making. (Parent)
The Headmasters of the Senior and Junior Schools sent regular videos to pupils to support them pastorally and academically.
Many departments filmed experiments and demonstrations to share with the pupils. Here is a small selection.
Eco-conscious Year Four pupils, with the help of an adult, went on a litter walk as part of their Science lessons. They designed a tally chart to record different types and used their findings to answer questions about litter.
Reception pupils made fantastic animal spotting hideouts, pet shops and junk model animals as part of their topic on animals. Here are Jacob T’s elephants.
Inspired by writing poems as part of Year Six’s remote English lessons, Viola P created a few of her own poems based on observations and ideas. ‘The Boy’ is one of these.
Following on from this, Year Six set up ‘Poets’ Corner’ – a separate Google Classroom to share and respond to each other’s poems and attend Poetry Meets.
Pupils also received regular video sporting challenges encouraging them to stay active and healthy.
