Google Classroom (R-Y6)
Each week teachers are posting work for their classes on Google Classroom.
Instructions for using Google Classroom attached below.
There are timed sessions in the week when children can contact their teachers.
We are also using Google Meet for classes to meet online with their teachers.
Teachers have given children details about this on Google Classroom.

Google Classroom for Assemblies
There is a new classroom called ‘Assemblies’ in Google Classroom.
Go to the first page of Google Classroom where the choice of rooms is shown, click the + in the top right, then click join a class and enter the room code (included in letter emailed to parents on 12th June).

Other Deansfield logins

Pupils in Years 1-6 also have logins for MyMaths and TimesTables Rockstars to support their maths learning.
For younger pupils, there are logins for PhonicsPlay and Busy Things.
Details for these are on Further Resources page.

Further resources
There are many websites providing a wealth of resources for home learning including the government website and BBC Bitesize. We have listed some of these on the Further Resources page for you to look at as required. While it is valuable to have so many resources available, seeing so many can be daunting. They are there so you can select ideas and support for learning you are doing at home, and can be fitted in between equally important fresh air, exercise and downtime.  The teachers will, at times direct you to certain ones.

Keeping you informed
We will keep you informed regularly of provision for home learning in letters to parents and letters to children.
The Compass Partnership Trust are also sending regular letters home.
Click here for letters sent since the start of school closure.
Please see attachments below regarding phased return to school and the risk assessment for phased return to school.
Both of these are  working documents and subject to internal changes.
