Home Learning Information
Under each cohort's tab you will find lessons based on the term's learning foci. Each lesson will have a learning intention (an aim for the lesson), success criteria (what we are hoping the students achieve) and a short activity. These activities are modified examples of what we would be teaching in the classroom. Parents and Carers are welcome to adjust these lessons to suit their own personal circumstance. Lessons are usually sequenced to build on the lesson from the previous day.
Moving to remote learning provides an opportunity for our children to continue to access their learning and their curriculum. Please note that we do understand that remote learning also places significant stress on families. To help reduce pressure on our families, we ask is that you do the best that you can. If you’re having a bad day, drop the school work and go for a walk or a bike ride. Hopefully it is only for a few days and we are all back at school on Wednesday.
Your child's classroom teacher will be able to help with any questions or queries via Compass or email. Teacher’s classroom contact hours are between 9am – 3.30pm. Families are encouraged to contact their child's classroom teacher at any stage if they would like to organise a phone call or face to face Webex. Every class will have a scheduled whole class Webex meeting at 9.30am each day they are engaging in remote learning, as well as two small group work WebEx meetings facilitated by their classroom teacher with a literacy and numeracy focus.
As teachers will be utilising a range of online learning resources, including YouTube and other public platforms that are not bound by departmental privacy/safety guidelines. It is advised that all computer and internet use be supervised by parents.
