Year One Remote Learning at Home
School is currently closed and so learning will need to be done remotely online from home. For each day, during the school closure your lessons will be posted here on the class page. You should record your work either in your homework or home learning book, upload it to the blog or complete it on jit5 on the BGFL app launch pad and then save it so I can see it. You can find out how to access the Class Page, logon to the BGFL App Launchpad and how to record work and save it on jit5 by looking at the help videos and PDF documents above. If you need help with getting online scroll down this page and you will see help videos and instructions for how to get onto BGFL, and the blog, save work into j2files and how to use the class website.
*If you do not have access to the internet at home, you will need to contact the school to arrange a collection of a 'home learning pack' that your child can complete and record their work in.
Below I have put a timetable where you can see what learning activities and lessons we will be doing each day. It is expected, that if you learning remotely at home, that you complete each of these tasks every day from Monday- Friday. You can find the daily lessons if you scroll down below to the bottom of this page. Please bear in mind there will also be a list of spellings to learn for the week. There will also be no Spade to Fork on Wednesdays while the school is closed- please come in your uniform as normal if you are a critical worker child and are in school.
The email to contact me on if you have any issues is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winning Housepoints From Home
While you are working from home there is a great opportunity to earn lots of house points! Every day I will be awarding house points-for each remote task you do from the timetable you will get 5 house points each- this means you can earn more than 50 house points or class dojos every day! We are using the class dojo house point system instead of j2stars and I will be announcing the three winners with the most house points every week. Then, every Friday at the end of each week I will be resetting the house points back to 0 so that everyone will start on Monday with the same. This means there is all to play for every week and anybody can win!
You can receive house points for uploading work to the blog or by uploading work of jit5 into your pupil file. You can even earn house points just for registering at the start of the day and telling me that you are ready for your learning! Everybody's points have been reset to 0 so there is all to play for! I need to see your work to give you the house points so make sure you either upload your work or pictures of it to the blog or complete it on jit and save it as a j2file. For any help on how to do this please see the top of this page. Every Friday I will post the dojo points online for the week so that you can see who has the most and who is at the top of the leader board! The top three children each week will receive a special treat from me when they return to school. Have fun and earn lots of house points!
