We are pleased to be using Microsoft Teams as our Virtual Learning Platform. Here children will be able to access all of their daily work as well as finding support from their teacher.
Please use the video support guide and PDF documents below to help you get started on Microsoft Teams. If you have any questions or problems, get in touch with your child's class teacher.
Does my child need to attend lessons at a particular time?
No. To begin with teachers are using Teams as a place to put all resources for each lesson. You can complete the work at any point on the set day.
As we continue to move forwards, there may be some live lessons. To access the live lesson you will need to log in at the right time, however, these lessons will also be recorded so that you can watch at a later date if you need to.
Do I need to print worksheets?
Sometimes, if you would like to. Teachers will add a range of resources including video links, worksheets and online quizzes. Many worksheets can be completed on plain paper. Some work will be added as an editable word document that children can add to online and then submit. Teachers may also set online quizzes as an additional or alternative piece of work.
Do I need a laptop?
No. You can access Teams on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. We are in the process of finalising a scheme where parents can buy a laptop through school, paying monthly.
Do I need to help my child with their work?
Initially your child may benefit from your support to navigate the work. As they get used to the technology, older children may be able to work more independently.
