Following our closure, here is some information on how to access your online home learning through Purple Mash, MyMaths, Spelling Shed and Microsoft Teams.
We will be accessing Microsoft Teams to do some online lessons and setting assignments.
Please follow this link here:
Click on sign in. Your child’s username is 15 then their first name, the first letter of their last name, then @bforest.notts.sch.uk
So, for example, if your child’s name was Fred Flinstone their username would be: email@example.com
The children should know their password as it is the same one to log on to the laptops in school. If they do not know their password or you need help with accessing any online learning, please ring the school office and they will contact one of us.
Stay safe and speak soon,
Miss Bamford, Miss Plaskitt and Mr Wood
Children will be given weekly spellings and have access to 'Spelling Shed' - which children also have their own individual log ins for this too. Here they are also assigned different activities and tasks to work their way through. Activities are shown on the home screen or in the assignments tab.
Currently to avoid children having to bring additional bags and clothing into school, children are being asked to wear their PE kits into school and both PE sessions will be taught on the same day to avoid doing this multiple times a week.
Year Four’s PE day will be on a Wednesday and children should come dressed appropriately for all occasions, including the cold and rain, as an indoor slot may not always be available and children are being encouraged to do PE outside as much as possible.
If children have their ears pierced, they will be expected to take out their earrings for PE lessons.
Children are ‘served’ their homework menu every half-term which is linked to the half-termly project in class. There is no minimum expectation for children to complete these tasks on a daily or weekly basis, but children can choose which tasks they have an interest in to develop their love an enthusiasm for learning. Children will be rewarded will a Class Dojo for each piece of homework completed.
Please listen to your child read 5 times a week and record in their School Planners. Children that do read 5 times a week will receive 10 dojos on a Wednesday so please make sure your child brings in their school planner each day for this to be monitored.
It is important that children are reading daily and practising their spellings and times tables.
If, for any reason you are struggling to access this or your child does not have access to their log ins, then please do not hesitate to contact the office and request further help.
Many thanks for all your help and support at this tricky time.
Mr Wood, Miss Plaskitt and Miss Bamford
