Learning @ Home
What should learners be working on if they are having to isolate at home?
If learners are well and working at home:
The tasks that would have been delivered during lesson time will be available to engage with on the relevant subject Google Classroom. The message facility in the classroom can be used to ask the teacher for any clarification.
In PE, Arts and Design and Technology subjects, it is sometimes more difficult for learners working at home to undertake the same tasks as learners in school. Therefore, in these subjects, alternative resources will be uploaded to the relevant Google Classroom.
If learners are unwell:
The tasks that would have been delivered during lesson time will remain on the subject Google Classroom for learners to engage with when they are feeling better.
If you have any urgent concerns that cannot be addressed using the message function on the relevant Google Classroom, you can raise these by emailing email@example.com. Please specify the learner year group in any communication. During the period of isolation, school will make contact to see how learners are getting on and to help with any concerns or queries.
I cannot access the Google Classroom. What should I do?
Please read the Google Classroom Guide at the start of our Resources tab at the top right of this page.
If learners are still experiencing problems for any reason, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and outline the issue. Please specify the learner year group in any communication. Your message will be passed on to the relevant member of staff and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
What about practical subjects?
In PE, Arts and Design and Technology subjects it is sometimes more difficult for students working at home to undertake the same tasks as students in school. Therefore, in these subjects, alternative resources will be uploaded to the relevant Google Classroom.
What should learners do if they can’t access the google classroom for a lesson that is in progress?
If learners have accessed their subject Google Classroom at the same time that their lesson is being delivered and the work is not there, please do the following before contacting the class teacher via the Google Classroom or by email:
review previous work set on the Google Classroom and ensure own work is up to date
allow the teacher 5 minutes to settle their live class, take the register and upload the resources (this is done during the 5 minutes’ reading at the start of lessons so learners at home can also be engaging with their reading during this time)
We are struggling to engage with the 5 minutes of reading at the start of each lesson as we don’t have any books available to us at home. What should we do?
Please use the online book links on the Resources tab at the top right of this page.
