For any pupils who were missing from out meeting, here is what we discussed:
There is now a literacy channel on Teams for the pupils who do Literacy with me. The group who do not do literacy with me have their own Team with Mrs Esmer. This is so that the general page is not used for Literacy chat as it may confuse people.
Extra work for whizz kids on spelling
If the Whizz Kids are looking for extra work they may also take part in the spelling activities which I have set on my Literacy channel. This is extra and is independent work to improve your spelling.
Study Ladder Written Maths work
Today I introduced using Study ladder for maths group work. There are tasks which are tutorials to watch and then any practice tasks should be written down in your jotter so that they can be submitted to me on the assignment on Teams. Read the assignment carefully to see whether there is written work to be sent to me.
Slow internet and proxy issues
People are still having issues with Proxy authentication and slow internet. Most people have been resetting their network settings, which has helped for some time. Another trick is to clear your data by doing this:
Close Safari, double click home button and swipe Safari up to make sure it and any other applications are closed.
Launch the "Settings" app on your iPad through the home screen.
Scroll down the menu and select "Safari".
Scroll down to the bottom of right hand panel and tap on "Advanced ".
Tap on "Website Data" from the pop-up window.
Tap on “Remove All Website Data”.
Please use assignments to submit your work from now on. Please do not email me work or post it on to the general posts page.
I emailed all parents today to check you would need paper packs in the future. Please ask parents to check their email and reply ASAP if they need paper copies of work.
