Dear Parents & carers
Remote Learning Update for Nursery, Reception, Years 1 & 2
As of next week we are going to be adding in a live register session for the children with their class teacher. This will take place each morning and last for 30minutes.
This is a very exciting change and will improve the remote learning offer for the younger children in school. The teachers are looking forward to having daily contact with the children- they will take a register, share the remote learning for that day and also complete a short activity or story.
We have had a lot of parents saying that the daily phone calls from teachers are feeling quite overwhelming so we hope that adding in a live session will ease this pressure. If your child joins the live session you will not get a phone call. We will continue to call families of children that are unable to join live teaching sessions.
The live sessions will take place on Microsoft TEAMS. This is the same APP that the children in Y3-6 are using for their remote learning. To download the TEAMS APP to a computer, laptop or tablet please see the attached instructions.
To download the TEAMS APP to your phone please do the following:
We are not expecting the younger children to log in. We will send you a web link via Marvellous Me each morning so you can just click on the link to join your child’s register session. You can join from a mobile phone- your child does not need access to a laptop or tablet for these sessions.
Please ensure you have downloaded Marvellous Me to your phone (see letter attached for instructions) as you will not be able to access the teaching sessions without it.
Early next week we will clarify when these live sessions will start. In the meantime please ensure you have Marvellous Me and the TEAMS APP downloaded. Continue to access the school website and complete learning packs as directed by your child’s class teacher.
