Spring 2 News Week 3 January 22nd

Good morning everyone,
I am sorry if your lessons were disrupted yesterday. I am afraid our internet connection developed a mind of it’s own. We are working on it so bear with us.
Well done John!
What a lovely picture!

Stage 2 Monday January 11th until February 1/2 term holiday.

Please follow the link to your child’s class page where we will upload the weekly timetable (uploaded each Friday.)

This will contain the links to the live sessions with your child’s teacher. We will be monitoring engagement with the online learning making sure that all children are keeping up with their school work.

The timetable will include links to daily English and Maths lessons with your class teacher as well as a story/ class novel session.

The final session of the day will be a chance to share work and receive feedback. You can also share your child’s work via Purple Mash, via Facebook or via email to Castle admin.

All lessons with your teacher will be accessed via Microsoft Teams. Below are some leaflets which will support you with this.

How to access Home Learning Resources

Pupils Home Learning How to guide

 

Our home learning also incorporates the use of our  online learning platforms.

There will also be links to support independent learning and research into the curriculum theme for the term.

We will be in contact if you have told us that you do not have access to a computer/tablet. If you have difficulties accessing learning virtually please let us know and together we can work out how to support you.

Safeguarding for our online teaching sessions.
• All sessions on Teams will have two members of staff (one lead, one support) present at all times and the full session will be recorded. This means that children can watch the recording again to help them with their follow up work.
 • Web-cameras/Video/Microphones should be turned on for students during taking the register and if they have a question, but for the remainder of time, webcameras/video/Microphones for students should be turned off. This will be managed and monitored by the supporting member of staff.
• The ‘chat’ function will be disabled for 1-1 use and is not to be used outside of the public forum and may only be used in group meeting sessions for asking questions. This will be managed by the supervisors on the call.
