Welcome to the home learning page.
Support for students working at home.
During Covid-19, plans for where and how students learn must be flexible and adaptable. We have set up systems to ensure students can continue their learning if they were to self-isolate. The details are set out below:
Online Learning at Bolder
At Bolder we have set up Microsoft Teams to support with home-learning.
Our preferred model for online learning at Bolder entails your child watching pre-recorded videos created by our teaching staff. These videos relate directly to what students are studying at the time. We have recorded these lessons in advance to ensure students who have any IT issues can access them at any time during or after they have been uploaded. We want to make sure no student is left behind.
Each recorded lesson will last about 55 minutes in total. There will be teacher explanations which will last approximately 20 minutes. Then there will be an opportunity for your child to complete a specific task. At the end of the lesson, your child will take part in a quiz so that the teacher is able to check your child’s engagement and also their understanding of the topic.
Sometimes it may be necessary to change the format of how lessons are delivered. Lessons may have to be live broadcasted through Microsoft Teams as and when the teacher is teaching the class who is physically in school. These lessons will not be recorded.
Work will also be emailed to students at set times of the day to help them manage their timetable.
Lessons will be uploaded at the times shown on the timetable which is published on the website.
Accessing the Online Learning
To access the online learning (videos and quizzes) your child will need to access their Microsoft Teams account.
To help us answer any questions about online learning or the work set we have set up an email which students and parents/carers can use. The email address that you should use is firstname.lastname@example.org
We ask that you use this email address for any queries you may have about the learning and work set.
Please also take a look at the Home Learning page on the school website which we will update regularly.
We do have to caveat this information and share with you that this may be subject to change depending on staffing levels due to Covid.
