If your child is in Reception, Years 1, 2 or 3, and they will be able to access home learning resources and activities using the online learning platform, BGFL365.
Children in Years 4, 5 and 6 will use Microsoft Teams and have received training from their teachers to access this. We have also begun to set their 'normal' homework activities on Teams.
Every child has already received a copy of their BGFL 365 login and has been shown how to access materials. On their login screen they should see two extra tiles.
The tile that states ‘Home Learning’ will contain a folder for every day. It will give clear guidance of tasks that the children can complete as well as any resources that are needed for that lesson. For example, a child may have to complete a table on an online document. The class teachers will be able to look at what the children have completed and their responses – we are not expecting the teachers to mark this work individually, but there will be some sort of general feedback in the next day’s folder.
There is also a list of home learning websites – this will be updated when new ‘home learning’ sites pop up.
Children in Years 4, 5 or 6 will access Teams from their BGFL365 Launch page, by clicking on a tile similar to this one:
