Grade 2: Remote Learning Information: July 16th, 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
The students in Grade 2 will begin remote learning on Monday 19th of July, 2021. We are hopeful that this lockdown will only last until Tuesday, but we must be realistic and be mindful that it could go longer.
Similar to the previous lockdown in June, the online program with lessons can be found in Google Classroom from Sunday after 4pm. Students should be familiar with their login for Google Classroom which was sent home at the beginning of the year and during the last lockdown in Term 2. If you need assistance with this, please contact your child’s teacher using the Gmail information provided below.
Please read the stream daily to access the greeting and attendance task. A daily morning WebEx will be held to check in every day, share news, connect with class members and to ask questions about any tasks.
Learning tasks will be provided for Reading, Writing and Maths each day. There will also be a small teaching group being held on WebEx. Please refer to the timetabled information shared by your child’s teacher, so your child knows when to join their group. Other than when they attend the set WebEx meetings, students and families can work at their own pace throughout the day when it suits them on the learning tasks. Please ensure that you take brain breaks regularly.
Whole class and Small group times are -
Thank you, the Grade 2 Team

Grade 1: Remote Learning Information: July 16th, 2021
The students in Grade 1 will continue remote learning from Monday July 19th. We are hopeful that this lockdown will only last until Tuesday, but we must be realistic and mindful that it could go longer.
Similar to the previous lockdown in June, the program of lessons will be available in the Google Classroom from Sunday (after 4pm). Students should be familiar with their login for Google Classroom which was sent home at the beginning of the year and during the last lockdown in Term 2.

Teachers will post:
In addition to these posted lessons, teachers will also run WebEx social meetings at 9.15am each morning, just as they did during the previous lockdown. This will allow students to share news, ask questions or clarify tasks. Each day there will also be two small teaching groups. These groups will have either a numeracy focus or a literacy focus. Students will be assigned to two teaching groups throughout the week (if lockdown extends beyond two days).
Small group times are -
You are free to work at your own pace on the activities throughout the day. Please ensure that you take brain breaks and eat regularly.
Please read the daily announcement and morning greeting in the Class Stream. This will also include the daily attendance task.
This week the specialist teachers will be busy supervising students who are working onsite at school. Therefore, there will be no specialist activities posted this week. Should the lockdown be extended we will update you about what the specialist program will look like.
Please contact your child’s teacher via gmail if needed.
