Extended Learning from Home
We endeavour to build learning habits for life in all our community. To that end our curriculum is designed to deepen student understanding and knowledge, while covering a breadth of appropriate content. To support this concept and while students are having to do more from home and work more autonomously we will continue to offer additional core knowledge based resources for all years to use as supplementary to the in class and at home resources they receive.
These resources can be found here
To gain access to this section of the website please contact email@example.com or your head of year for support.
Microsoft Teams - Online Lessons and Learning
All our families and students that were learning with us from home throughout the national lockdown, you will hopefully now be very familiar with Microsoft Teams. For everyone newer to the school and those looking for some more guidance, we hope to offer it here.
Microsoft Teams is an online platform that can be used to connect our teachers to our students. Staff and students can safely and securely teach live lessons, set and give feedback on work, and allow two-way communication between both parties. We also use it for online assemblies and sharing key messages with students. We will do this, even after the challenges of COVID-19 have passed.
Only users with an Oasis IT and email account can gain access to our MS Teams, ensuring students online safety and confidence in who they will see and speak to on the platform.
- Users must know their school email address and password (used to log in to our computers in school too) to gain access.
- If a student does not know their username and password they should email their head of year, assistant head of year of pastoral leader to get it reset (contact details below)
- Guidance on using MS Teams and how to navigate it can be found here
Using MS Teams
- To support students using MS Teams we have put together some mini guides to the key features
- TIPS AND TRICKS GUIDES
- Your teacher will and pastoral tutors will also be happy to help if you ask!
Head of Year
Please remember that all Students, Parents and Carers also have access to the 100% Homework resources on the school website. These can be found under Curriculum and 100% Homework. You will be able to filter by subject and read a homework overview for both term one and term two for each subject. You will also have access to a reading list and related resources that your child can use to revise what they have been taught so far in lessons.
Knowledge Organisers – information on what they are and how to use them
Knowledge Organisers are usually a list of the key knowledge that a student needs to know for a topic. They are used across a number of subjects within the Academy to support student learning and to aid revision. Where these are available, the student can use them to revise using the technique of Look, Cover, Say, Write, Check or using Flashcards to quiz their knowledge.
We recommend that students use the knowledge organisers to learn and revise from and that parents use them to quiz their child at home.
