Daily routine

Try where possible to keep a routine in line with the school day. If staff are able to work, they will try to do so in school time, and therefore may to be able to answer queries outside of that time. The following advice may be worth your consideration: 

  • Identify a comfortable and quiet place to learn.  

  • Be proactive and engaged in your learning.  

  • Review class posts on Show My Homework or Microsoft Teams regularly. 

  • Complete any tasks set on Show My Homework or Microsoft teams. 

  • Contact your class teacher via the Team if you have queries regarding the work. 

  • Ensure to either submit / mark as done / turn in documents on Classwork posts to mark that you have completed them. 

  • Complete all work with academic honesty (do not plagiarise).
