Remote Learning Year 5

Latest Information

 

Virtual Class Meetings
 

Each class will be holding two Virtual Class Meetings with all students. This offers students an opportunity to connect with their class and class teacher.
Teachers may be engaging in a community circle, a social activity, a new learning activity or explain a task.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to connect with each other, ask questions and clarify understandings about learning that has been planned.

These class meetings will be held via WebEx. Families have access to instructions for WebEx via Google Classroom (years 3-6).
While these virtual class meetings are over the internet, any family not connected will continue to book one on one conferences with their teachers once a week via Sentral.

Wellbeing

 

Being confined to home for an extended period of time can cause stress and conflict. Tips for looking after your children during isolation include:

  • Talking to your whole family about what is happening. Understanding the situation will reduce their anxiety.
     

  • Help your children to think about how they have coped with difficult situations in the past and reassure them that they will cope with this situation too. Remind them that the isolation won't last for long.
     

  • Exercise regularly. Options could include exercise DVDs, dancing, floor exercises, yoga, walking around the backyard or using home exercise equipment, such as a stationary bicycle, if you have it. Exercise is a proven treatment for stress and depression.
     

Encourage your children to keep in touch with family members and friends via telephone, email or social media (where appropriate).
