Virtual Learning Resources

To make sure you are not disadvantaged in your studies while school is closed, we have devised different programmes for different years.

These arrangements have been revised for the summer term to make them as simple as possible.


Using Microsoft Teams

Work for all students is now set through Microsoft Teams, an interactive online learning platform which allows teachers to create resources for students to access at home and then set assignments for them to hand on.

You'll find a guide to accessing MS Teams at the bottom of this page or watch the video below. 

If students have any issues accessing the online learning resources, please contact your teacher directly via email. For example, if you have forgotten your passwords simply email the teacher and they can reset them.

If you do not have access to a computer and the internet then we need to know as soon as possible. Please email info@harrisdulwichboys.org.uk. If you have any questions regarding access to Virtual Learning resources, please email this address too.


Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9)

When school closed we published a suggested timetable for Key Stage 3 students, which still applies. Each lesson is designed to be one hour and all subjects included will be setting lessons through Microsoft Teams.

From Monday 8th June, students will also have some live lessons on Microsoft Teams. Students will be able to log into their Microsoft Teams accounts and interact with their normal class teacher who deliver a specially-adapted live lesson for them.  All Key Stage 3 live lessons will initially take place between 2.30-3.30pm each day on the following timetable: 

Year/Day

HUMANITIES 

SCIENCE 

Year 8

Year 9

On Monday, for example, all Year 7 students will have an English lesson between 2.30-3.30pm. Students are expected to attend these live lessons unless they have spoken to their tutor and class teacher in advance. Tutors will continue their regular weekly contact with students.

Where students are unable to be at a live lesson, that lesson will be recorded so that students can catch up with that lesson using Microsoft Stream. For students without access to the internet or a laptop, please contact us and we will try to get you a laptop. If this is not possible, we will send home some hard copy work to be completed. 

In addition to these core subjects, we will also be delivering weekly PSHE and Wellbeing ‘live lessons’ delivered by Mr Allison and Miss Price. These will take place on the following days between 9.30-10.15am

Year/Day

This means, for example, on a Monday, Year 7 will have a PSHE live lesson every week at 9.30am.

Overall, students will be expected to work for three hours a day as a minimum requirement. In total, they should attempt to cover the following hours on their Microsoft Teams groups: 

  • English, Maths and Science – two hours per week each
  • Spanish, History, Geography, Religious Studies, Art, Performing Arts, Music, Design Technology, ICT and PE – one hour per week each
  • PSHE and Wellbeing – one hour per week each

Key Stage 4 (Year 10)

All resources for these students will continue to be on Microsoft Teams. Each student will however now have a personalised timetable which includes:

  • Sessions on-site
  • Live lessons delivered on Microsoft Teams
  • Streamed lessons delivered on Microsoft Teams

You will receive a letter and a call from one of our senior leadership team explaining the process for Year 10 and their new timetable, which will start from Monday 15th June 2020. Here is an example of the new timetable.

From this you can see the typical time a student will be expected to work each week. Four out of five days will have specifically designated lessons that students need to attend either at the academy or online. All resources and live teaching will take place here. On the other day students have pre-set work to complete and submit to teachers on Microsoft Teams.


Active Citizenship - Win £10 vouchers

At Harris Boys’ Academy East Dulwich, we want you to develop the Active Citizenship characteristics of curiosity, confidence, resilience, respectfulness and ambition.

In order to help you do this, we have developed a Personal Development Curriculum which you can access alongside your academic work while the school is closed.

To recognise your work as Active Citizens, we're giving every boy a chance to win £10 Amazon vouchers, as a reward for the work you are doing at home.

The Personal Development Curriculum includes:

All these extra things will help to support your personal development in these difficult times. Within your weekly study time at home, please ensure you set time aside to do these vitally important things.


Contacting teachers

As our virtual school continues to develop and grow, there may be times that students need to contact staff directly to support their learning. Once Microsoft Teams is in place for all year groups the easiest way to do this is through that platform.

However, if you want to contact a member of staff in the meantime please email them directly. Our most common problem is that students forget their log-in for some of our online learning platforms such as Hegarty Maths. This can be easily resolved by the class teacher issuing a password re-set.

If you have specific questions about the curriculum, please contact one of our Subject Leaders:
