5.1.21

Good morning, 

Staff have began uploading activities for the children to complete remotely from their own Microsoft Teams account.   

Children will be set a Maths, English and other Curriculum lesson to work through daily.  These assignments can be accessed through the named folders on their account.  Teachers will be leaving daily messages greeting the children and giving instructions for the day’s lessons through the ‘Meeting Point’ folder on Teams. 

Work can be completed in the home exercise book that had previously been provided, uploaded to teams or sent directly to their class e-mail - which ever you find more convenient.  Work can be completed at any time that is convenient throughout the day 

Class e-mails are also a way of contacting teachers for support with learning: 

year6@blackfell.org.uk
year5@blackfell.org.uk
year4@blackfell.org.uk
year3@blackfell.org.uk
year2@blackfell.org.uk
year1@blackfell.org.uk
reception@blackfell.org.uk
nursery@blackfell.org.uk 

There will be a message available from the class teacher and work available for the children to complete from 12PM today. 

Nursery, Reception and Year 1 learning packs will be available to be collected from the community room from 1pm today and work will be continue to be provided on Microsoft Teams for those children from next week. 

Many thanks, 

Mr. Barrass

 Reading Books

We appreciate that many of you may have like to access reading books at home. Fortunately, one of of our reading schemes, Oxford Owl, have released many of their books as free e-books that can be read at home on tablets, laptops or computers. 

In order to access these books, you need to follow this link to create a log in. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/user/sign_up.html

Once you have verified your email address you will be able to view the free e-book library and the books available. To find your child's level, click on Levels then Oxford Level. 

Your child's class teacher has indicated your child's reading level in their home reading record to tell you which Oxford Level books your child should be reading. You can make a note of the book and pages your child has read in their reading diary as you would for school.

Remote Learning

Remote learning can be accessed through tablets, computers and smart phones.

Should your child have to self-isolate, meaning a period of absence, school will provide learning for them to complete at home.  Home learning resources on our website were used well last term and a similar system will be used again. Work will be appropriate to the age of the child and any additional needs.  Microsoft Teams will be used as a platform to send and submit work between the class teacher and pupil. A 'home guide' to logging in and accessing assignments set by the teacher can be found underneath.

Your child will  receive a  list of login details to access Microsoft Teams and other resources such as Timestables Rockstars, Numbots and Purple Mash. 

The general principles of our remote learning are outlined below:

  • Home learning will be provided daily which will include a Maths activity, an English activity and another subject such as History, Science, Art etc.
  • Teaching videos will be provided and, across the week, there will be learning in different areas of the school curriculum.
  • We will be asking that the children send their work back to school so that the teacher can check the learning and provide feedback as necessary. Children will be provided with a blank school exercise book in which to record and/or work can be submitted through Microsoft Teams.
  • Early Years and Year 1 will be provided with practical resources such as number lines and alphabet cards
  • We will be in regular contact with you so please make sure that your email address and phone number are up-to-date and you look out for communications from school.
  • You will be able to request paper copies of the learning if you have no access to the internet.
