Week 2 Lesson Links
Dear parents and carers,
I am writing to update you on the launch of our remote learning curriculum from Monday 20th April.
Firstly, I want to thank all the staff from across the Greenshaw Learning Trust, including those at Blaise High School, who have worked tirelessly over the Easter holiday to ensure resources are ready for students from Monday 20th.
Secondly, I want to remind you of the structure of the lessons and what is expected of our students.
Where do student find their resources?
- The new resources are still on Google Classrooms, just as our students are used to
- At the bottom of the this letter I have reminded you of how to log in and use Google Classrooms
- Students must follow the new timetable, which is attached to this letter
- Lessons should be completed on the correct day, however we have built in the flexibility of for lessons to be completed at a time within the day that best suits your family’s own circumstances
- To help students get quick access on Monday morning to the first day of resources I’ve also added the links directly to this letter for the Maths, English and Science resources
- These links take you straight to the Youtube lesson
- In the description box of the Youtube video you will find the links to the Low Stakes Quiz and Exit Ticket
How are the Greenshaw Remote curriculum lessons delivered?
- Each lesson has three parts:
- They will always start with a low stakes quiz
- They will include a YouTube videos, created by our staff, which students must follow
- They will end with an “exit ticket” form which students must complete to show what they have learned
What additional feedback and guidance can students expect?
- There is significant additional support to our students available
- Teams of teachers will be able to respond to questions from students through subject specific email hubs, details of the email addresses students can use are below
- Emails will be responded to within 24 hours by subject teachers and the quality of help they give will be the same as help students get in a “normal” lesson
- In most cases they will get help considerably faster than 24 hours, our aim is to get as close to an instant response as we can
- Teachers will also be able to analyse “exit ticket” responses and give feedback to ensure students make excellent progress
|Subject||Subject Email Hub|
*for help in subjects not listed above, students should email their own teachers or contact them through Google Classrooms
Thank you for your continued support
