Remote learning for the children not attending school or attending school part-time

We will be using Teams to give children lessons to watch, PowerPoints to use and a video from the teacher each day.  If children are attending school part time, they will be expected to complete the remote learning on the days when they are not in school.  This is important so that the children are not behind on days when they are in school. The learning in school will follow the remote learning.

 

If your child has not logged in for a while, or at all, their password may have expired. If this is the case please contact school and we will issue a new one as soon as we can.

We will also be giving children a ‘home learning pack’ with an exercise book to record work and any sheets that they will need for the week.  We have done this so that parents do not need to print out work at home.  Home learning packs will be changed weekly and you should already have a timetable for times to come and collect packs.  So, each week on Wednesday a new learning pack will available to be swapped.  We will mark the work that the children have completed the previous week and swap again on the following Wednesday.  If your child is in school part-time, they will need to bring these packs with them on days when they are in school.  To make sure that we can support you, we will also be ringing the children to talk about their learning and well-being.

 

All children have a login for Teams in their planner.  Homework has already been set on Teams and the majority of children have used this in school.  There is a guide to using Teams below.
