Guidance on Lessons for remote learning during lockdown

(See linked documents below for further information for parents) 

Where will my lessons be?

Your lessons will be set on Satchel:One and will follow your usual timetable.  To find your lessons you should:

  • Log into your account on Satchel:One
  • Select ‘Calendar’
  • Use the scroll bar on the right-hand side to view all of the work on your calendar
  • Look for work that is in a red box – this is classwork
  • Select the lesson that you are going to complete
  • If the lesson will be live it will be labelled LIVE lesson with the day and time. 

When will my lessons be set?

Your lessons will be set by 9am every day in time for you to complete the lessons that are on your school timetable.

If you have a TEAMS live lesson you should have notification at least the day before and you will receive a notification by email and on the main page of the class team. 

When should I complete my lessons?

You should aim to follow your usual school routine and complete the lessons on the day that you would be timetabled to have them in school.

  • Try to start the school day at the usual time
  • Make sure that you have a break time and a lunch time
  • Try to complete your work somewhere quiet where you can concentrate
  • Avoid watching TV or listening to music while you work
  • Make sure your mobile phone is in another room while you complete your work (unless you need to us it for your lesson)

How should I submit my work?

Read the instructions on Satchel:One carefully to see if your work needs to be submitted to your teacher.

  • Your teacher will include clear instructions telling you if they would like you to submit work to them
  • If your class teacher would like you to submit a piece of work they will give you clear instructions on how it should be submitted.  They may  you to upload it on Satchel:One or to a TEAMS assignment. 
  • If you are working on paper at home please make sure your presentation is excellent as your work may be stuck into your exercise book when you return

What should I do if I need help with my work?

Your lessons should be very clear and it should be easy to understand what you need to do.  If you do find that you are unsure then please work through the following steps:

  • Complete the parts of the lesson you feel confident about doing
  • Listen again to the loom instructions for the part of the lesson you are unsure of
  • Re-read the instructions for the part you are unsure about slowly and carefully
  • Ask an adult or an older brother or sister if they can explain what you need to do
  • Send an email or a message on Satchel:One to your teacher explaining that you are not sure what to do – try to be very clear about which bit is confusing you
  • Your teacher will be online during the lesson time to help you
