Year 2 – Year 3

The online curriculum will be delivered to our students in Year 2 via the platform ‘Seesaw’ and Year 3 via ‘Class Dojo’.

The resources have been carefully designed to provide students with a range of learning activities that will continue to build their skills and knowledge in all curriculum areas as well as lead to assessable outcomes. The resources can be provided in hard copy form to ensure equity for students with limited access to ICT. Please contact your child’s teacher if this is necessary.

Students will also have the opportunity to engage in live online learning via “Zoom”. Zoom is a simple-to-use program that provides real-time, face-to-face learning. The purpose of Zoom will be to engage in additional learning experiences in English, Mathematics, Science and HASS.

In general, teachers will be Zooming in the morning at 8:50am to discuss the work expectations for the day. A follow-up “check in” will be held at 2:00pm.

Zoom is a free service that can be downloaded at: https://zoom.us/

A short guide is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMUxzrgZvZQ

If your child is new to the College, his or her class teacher will be in contact via email to invite you to a welcome meeting on Friday 28 January at 10:30am. Your child’s class teacher will send you an invitation to this Zoom meeting.

We are hopeful that the lockdown will be two weeks only. When “normal” school resumes, students are required to bring completed work (on paper or in an exercise book) with them and we will continue all work in the classroom. We understand that all students work at different rates and that, in these difficult times, family situations can be very challenging. Students and families can be assured that teachers will be very flexible with regard to completion of work – our main aim is to keep students engaged in learning and to experience ongoing personal support from teachers. Students and families are encouraged to maintain regular contact with their teacher via email.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher should you require any further assistance or support. We thank you for your continued support during this uncertain time. In the meantime, please remain safe and well and know that we are here to support you.

Yours Sincerely,

Andrew Panozzo
