Teams online Support

Attached are a range of help guides for Teams and Office 365. If you need support with Teams that cannot be answered using these guides please email Mrs Nicholson. 

What Teams will look like

Mathematics

We will be mirroring the learning that will be taking place in school. This is based on our long-term plan.

Staff in charge of the Teams will share daily mathematics challenges on the general page. This will include a message from the staff member with some instructions, an editable word document with challenges on and a PPT for support.

The expectation will be that you download the file and complete it before uploading it into your file section on the class team page. 

Staff will not be providing personal feedback on this learning but will be checking in to look at it and may comment on it when making phone calls. Answers for each day will be provided in the files, the following day, for you to mark your learning at home.

English

Again, we will be mirroring the learning that is taking place in school. All children will be completing a two week Talk for Writing Unit.

This unit will be shared with you on a Monday morning, in an editable format, with challenges for the week. The staff in charge of the class team will share the document with instructions for the week, such as an outline for the daily expectations.

The expectation will be that you download the file and complete it before uploading it into your file section on the class team page. 

Staff will not be providing personal feedback on this learning but will be checking in to look at it and may comment on it when making phone calls.

 

We understand that access to a printer is a privilege therefore we will do our best to ensure that learning set does not need to be printed. If resources are shared that are not editable, they may be for reference. If you are not sure always ask. We will also be mindful of resources you may need to complete tasks.  

A guide for how to upload files and documents is available on the school website and within teams.

Staffing

The majority of our available staff are now teaching full time with pods, which means that there is a limited number of staff on teams. Here is the outline of who you can contact during the school day through Teams if you require. All staff are still online so will be able to check in with their classes occasionally.
