Virtual Learning Resources

We want you to be able to access as much support as possible while you are working from home. This page explains how we will make learning resources available to you.

One of our main concerns during any period of school closure is that students are not disadvantaged in their studies because of losing curriculum time.  We have therefore devised different programmes for different years.

Much of the work will be set through Microsoft Teams or other online learning platforms. However, students also have access to a virtual learning resources folder (see link below). If students have any issues accessing the online learning resources, please contact your teacher directly via email.

Click here to view our Years 7-10 virtual learning resources folder.


Suggested virtual learning timetable

In order to support you with virtual learning we have organised our virtual school into a timetabled day for Years 7-9 (Key Stage 3) and Year 10 (Key Stage 4).

In a normal day at HBAED we have five lessons, but at home we are suggesting four lessons. Each lesson should last approximately one hour and all work will be set on our virtual learning folder (see link above) or through MS Teams or other online learning platforms to which students have access.

If your child is following the suggested timetable below, all the resources they need will be in the virtual learning folder or sent to them using these online platforms.

As parents, you may want to encourage your child to follow this timetable exactly, but if this is not possible then it should offer at least a good base from which you can set expectations.

See the timetable below or download as pdf.

HCACP scheduleWe know the importance of supporting students whilst they are away from school both in terms of the academic curriculum but also through the own personal development. We have therefore also added important lessons on PSHE, Careers and Wellbeing. Please could you ensure students access and complete these.

Microsoft Teams

Our main strategy for supplying students with work is through Microsoft 365, especially our new Microsoft Teams service which enables lessons to be uploaded and work submitted by the students. All students in Year 11 have had this system demonstrated to them and should be able to easily access the work.

However, in order to support them to access this area, below is some clear guidance of the steps needed.

MS Teams 1

 

MS Teams 2

MS Teams 3

MS Teams 4


Our Microsoft Teams platform will have five lessons of our Core subjects uploaded each day for Year 11 students to study.  They are expected to complete the work set and submit it to their teacher for marking and feedback. These lessons will include:

  • A presentation prepared by the teacher
  • An assignment to complete
  • Supporting content from teachers including podcasts and video lessons

The subjects covered by these lessons, and expected to last one hour per day each, are:

  • English
  • Maths
  • Science
  • Spanish
  • Humanities (History or Geography)

This means students have five hours each day of work plus any additional homework. All assignments must be completed and submitted to the teacher at the end of each day.

Options subjects such as DT, Music, Art and Religious Studies will also be setting additional work individually to their groups. Please ensure students complete all work specifically assigned to them each day on Microsoft Teams.
