P3C & P3W Home Learning

Good morning, and what a great weekend for weather!

Today is the beginning of a new learning environment for all of us. In class last week we took time to log on to Glow to access Microsoft Teams and to check our login details for Sumdog and Manga High. If you are missing those details then please contact either Miss Cameron or Mr Wormald via Teams by messaging me directly. If you have difficulty logging into Microsoft Teams then also please contact one of us via our email address.

Every day a set of tasks will be issued on Microsoft Teams as well as a post for registration. We do not expect you to be online immediately at 9am but replying to the post will let us know you have been online to check for the tasks.

If you have any questions about the tasks or would like help then please post in the General channel on your class team page. If you want to talk to your classmates then use the Chill Out Zone where you can see how everyone is getting on.

For most tasks we will ask you to submit work via the daily assignment so that we can see how your are getting on and return feedback. However, some tasks we will let you work on your own and show/discuss with someone at home. Some tasks we may ask you to use your home learning jotter. Children who were in school last week were issued a home learning jotter. If you do not have one then paper or anything else creative will certainly do.

Most importantly this is new to you, and this is definitely new to us! It isn’t very often the school is closed. Don’t worry, we have plenty of time together to carry on your learning. Just login say hello and have a go. If you can’t get onto your class team page that day then do something creative, or something active that day and you will have achieved a task.

We will speak to you soon.

Mr Wormald and Miss Cameron
