This week we entered the summer term, the final one of the 2019/20 school year and we have, as explained a few weeks ago, reset the parameters around the Education At Home programme. We anticipate that this is likely to be the way teaching and learning will be organised for the rest of the term so it is important to work together to make it as effective as possible.
When the school site first closed, we received lots of questions and comments about how things were working out for students across all year groups. Having listened to all of the feedback, we changed the way work is set and how feedback is given using Google-classroom as the delivery platform.
Work will be set in one week blocks and doesn’t follow the school’s standard 5 lesson day plan. It will take a little time for everyone to adjust their learning and for students and staff to settle into a new routine. It is however important at this point to understand the change to the way work has been set in blocks of learning rather than lesson by lesson. The recommended learning blocks have been shared with staff.
Over the past few weeks, we have been changing the way that the school website appears so that everyone in our school community can quickly and easily access information. We have developed a whole range of resources to help support learning at home which are now available on the school website https://www.hccs1978.co.uk/
And follow the ‘Education at HOME’ button which will take you to a range of information including frequently asked questions and answers. If, after accessing this information, you have further questions or comments, please contact us using firstname.lastname@example.org It would also be great to hear about and to see examples of how students are doing at home during the coming weeks. Please send photos and comments to the same email address.
There are some excellent examples of students work appearing twice per day on twitter which can be accessed by following @Hccs1978
