This online classroom has been created by teachers specifically to support pupils’ learning at home. Oak is a free website available at www.thenational.academy. It is backed by the Department for Education, and your child’s teacher will advise the best way to use the lessons.
You can access Oak’s online classroom on any device, you don’t need to log in or remember a password. Your child can access lessons across a range of subjects, which provide more than three hours of learning every day.
Each lesson is delivered by a trained teacher, over a pre-recorded video, and it’s very clear at the start of each session anything you might need (such as pens, paper etc). The lessons are designed to need minimal supervision, although this will depend on the age of your child.
Oak also offers lessons and therapies for pupils with additional learning needs.
