Online learning. 

Hello everyone, 
As you will all be aware, our new learning platform is now on Teams. 
All children have log in details to access the work. On here they can complete the work set and turn it back in. 

Just in case anyone is struggling to use this I will also place the work on here daily. 

Many thanks, 
Miss Smith
Please be aware that Teams is running slowly at the moment due to the high demand of its use across the country. Please bare with it and let me know if you have persistent problems.

Miss Smith
Video meeting every day at 9:10am

How online learning is going to work

We will be having a meeting every day at 9:10am on Teams. You need to be logged onto Teams by then and I will start the call at 9:10. We can then discuss our daily work and have a catch-up! We will have another video call at 1:45pm every day to check that everyone is ok with their work and answer any questions you have.
Remember that you are working remotely from school - you are still expected to complete your work as if we were in class so I look forward to seeing the excellent job that you will do of everything!

If you need to email me for any reason, my email address is: rebekah.smith@hunsletstmarys.co.uk

Dear parents and carers, 

As you are all aware, our class bubble has had to be disbanded due to a positive test result within the bubble. All the children and adults within the bubble now to have self-isolate.  
I understand at this time you may be feeling anxious so if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to get in touch with me via the following email address:

Following education guidance from the government, the education of the children must continue. Back when the first lockdown happened, the activities and lessons for English and Maths that were uploaded were aimed at building upon the children's prior learning in Y3. However, due to the 6 months previous of the children not being in school, it is essential that we press on with the national curriculum and begin introducing new concepts to reduce the loss of learning. 

Each morning I will host a zoom meeting at 9.30am which I will send an ID and password for earlier in the morning. 
If you would like your child to join the zoom meeting but don't have an account, you can set one up here https://zoom.us/signin
On the zoom meetings I will explain the days work and help with any explanations. 
Each day I will be posting an English, Maths and a wider curriculum activity.  Any work completed should be sent to my email address: rebekah.smith@hunsletstmarys.co.uk as it is completed. This way I can look at the work and send feedback etc. It is really important the children complete the work that is uploaded so they don't fall behind in their learning. Pictures can be taken of the work completed or files uploaded via email if they complete it on a laptop or tablet.  There will also be links to websites and TTRS will still be available.

I am also going to be holding a zoom meet up session on Friday afternoon where myself and the other staff members from the bubble will be on and we can have a little virtual get together. I will send out the zoom i.d and password Friday morning. If you would like your child to join the zoom meeting but don't have an account, you can set one up here https://zoom.us/signin 

Tomorrows learning will be uploaded by 9am tomorrow morning and I will be contactable all day using this email address or the message board on our class page. 
Can I please remind you during these times to Stay Safe Online. I know I am asking you to use different websites and different links on a daily basis to help you with your home learning but please make sure you are being safe and only following the links that I have posted. Also remember the discussions we have had in class on how we stay safe;
  • Only add your real friends to online games
  • Do not talk to anyone you don't know
  • Do not give your personal information (such as your school, your whole name, your age, your address)
  • Only use games and apps that are appropriate for your age
  • Tell an adult if you see something that worries you
  • Talk to your adults about what you are doing on the interenet so they know you are being safe
