FAQs

What do I do if I have a question?

Please email Miss Wood on sapphire@st-johns-keele.staffs.sch.uk

Miss Wood will get back to you as soon as she can. As a minimum, emails will be checked at 8.30am and 3.30pm daily and responses will be given within 24 hours. Currently, Miss Wood is in school on Tuesday and Wednesdays and working from home Monday, Thursday and Friday. 

 

Where do I find learning for the day?

Learning will be posted on the class page ready for the start of each day. Children may then be directed to complete their work straight from a document posted on the website or to another provider. Largely, this will be Google classroom and MyMaths. 

 

What will learning look like for Class 6?

What will lessons look like?

In UKS2 we are keen to keep learning as close to 'normal' as possible as we hope older children will be able to cope with this independently therefore, we have kept the timetable quite busy.

We think it is important that children have a taught element to their lessons as much as possible and we will endeavour to do this alongside being in school to teach children of key workers. Due to this, Y6 lessons will be taught by Miss Wood, Miss Anderson or an online provider. 

 

How do I log into Google classroom?

Username: childsfirstandsurname@st-johns-keele.staffs.sch.uk

Password: red        (you can change this but we do not have access so please ensure you make a note of it  it would also be helpful if you email to let us know)

A user guide for Google classroom is attached at the bottom of this page

 

Where does my child record their learning?

Any work where answer sheets or videos are provided (e.g. maths/grammar lessons) can be completed on your child's preferred format. E.g. pen and paper, whiteboard on a laptop. This work can be saved for reference but doesn't need to be sent to school.

Most writing lessons and some topic sessions will be set on Google Classrooms so that work can be submitted and marked.

If you require an exercise book for your child to use, school can provide this. 

 

What about live lessons?

We understand children learning from home, especially those with siblings, will not always be able to access 'live' learning. Therefore, we will be pre-recording lessons for children to access at a time that suits them.

However, we recognise the need to meet as a class and to retain a community feeling so we will be meeting once a week in small groups. These live sessions will take place via Google Meets and a link will be sent to your child's Google calendar. Live sessions for Y6 will be scheduled for Monday, Thursday and Friday 2.15 - 2.35. You will be notified of the day your child is expected to attend by Friday of the previous week and you will be able to see the scheduled live session in Google calendar when your child is logged in to their account. NOTE: A link for Google meet WILL NOT appear in the classroom - it is on Google calendar instead.

 

How will I know my child is on track?

English and Maths subjects will be the priority for learning feedback. For most maths lessons video tutorials will be provided to guide children through the answers. Children will be able to self-mark all maths lessons. 

Written English lessons will be marked online via Google Classrooms. Children will then be able to respond to these by correcting or editing as they would in school. This marking will be completed as soon as possible but please bear with us, especially on the days we are teaching full-time.
