Remote Education

The school buildings may be temporarily closed, but Peregrines Nursery and Falcons School for Girls remain very much open. While we may not be in the classroom at the moment, we have adapted our provision and made a hugely successful shift to remote education using a number of online providers.

Find out more about what we can offer your child below.

Virtual Learning Platform

Every week, children are set tasks on our virtual learning platform to complete throughout the week. English and Maths tasks are set daily. The timetable works on a Week A and Week B basis to provide variety in the afternoon sessions with non-core subjects such as Spanish, Drama or History.

Live Video Lessons

Daily live video lessons provide pupils with the opportunity to see and interact with one another and their teachers while continuing to learn. This ensures children can still discuss topics, ask questions and get clarification verbally, as they would in a classroom environment.

11+ Preparation

In order to equip Year 3 to Year 6 girls with the knowledge and skills to excel in verbal and non-verbal reasoning, we have enlisted the use of a specialist online platform. For girls in Year 5, we know it is key to get 11+ preparation early so they are both confident and well-prepared for their exams next year.

Reading Sessions

We have invested in major library resource, which is used from Nursery through to Year 6 to enable children to enjoy one-to-one reading time with their teachers. This virtual library contains thousands of age-appropriate books for children to choose from, and by reading a book to their teacher over Zoom, pupils are able to develop their reading skills in a fun and interactive manner, much like they would face-to-face.

Pastoral Care

We know just how much anxiety and confusion the current times may be causing children, as well as their families. This is why our offering prioritises the pastoral element, for which our school is well known. We offer drop-in sessions at the end of every school day for children to share concerns and successes. Additionally, parents can contact teachers with any queries or concerns they may have.

Drop-down days

Every fortnight, both Peregrines and Falcons pupils are provided with the opportunity to have a drop-down day. This is an off-timetable day where the focus is primarily on doing a creative, engaging project that relies on little to no technology. The two forthcoming days will focus on VE Day and Sports activities, the latter to mirror our sports day, albeit at home.

Clubs

Clubs are offered in varying formats – as live sessions, recorded in advance or through accessing a link. Our current extra-curricular activities include touch typing, eco club, Greek, sign language and cooking. Children do not need to sign up in advance and can attend on an ad-hoc basis to learn a new skill or develop an existing one. Additional 11+ sessions are also running for pupils in Year 5.

What do our current parents think of our online provision?

Your e-timetable is working very well for us and is pitched and balanced excellently.

Year 4 Parent

She was so excited to see her teacher and her friends [on Zoom], and to have a bit of her normal school routine.

Nursery Parent

Firstly, just to say that Falcons Girls have been superb with the online teaching! I really can’t fault it. From the initial parents briefing, to online classes and the daily checklist, everything has been seamless and my daughter is able to crack on with no intervention from me! Thank-you!
