Dear Parents/Carers, 

Home learning on strike day(s)- online lessons

We are writing to you in regards to the strike day on Wednesday 1st February. To ensure that your child continues to receive the richest learning experiences, we will be delivering lessons online to years 7-10. 

The online sessions for years 7-10 will be on Wednesday 1st February 2023: 08:30-14:10.

In order to support our students, we recommend that there is a quiet workspace for them to sit with a desk/table so that they can work effectively and free from distractions. They will need all their equipment for these lessons.

Students will follow the timetable above with lessons starting promptly at 08:30 and finishing at 14:10. Students will be able to access their online lessons via the Google Meet link in through their Google Classrooms (by using the class codes that can be found at the bottom of this letter).

Year 7-10 instructions for Live Online Lessons 

  • Your lessons will be streamed live through Google Meet and will follow the timetable above. Enter the class codes below to join the scheduled lesson for your year group. If the link appears not to work, keep trying every couple of minutes since it will only work once your teacher is online.
  • Your camera and microphone must be off when you join the lesson. If you would like to ask a question, use the ‘chat’ box.
  • Your teacher will not speak for the entire lesson but in the same format as face to face lessons will provide you with activities to complete in relation to your learning. Do not leave the Google Meet until your lesson is over. If you need help with your work, leave a message in the ‘chat’ box.
  • You will need the normal learning equipment expected in the classroom to complete the work set.  However, your teacher might direct you to resources on the Google Classroom for that subject.
  • In order to access the live online lesson, students will need to use the Google Meet link in their year group classroom. If they do not have access to their year group Google Classroom, they can join using the codes below:
