Remote Learning

If your child is required to self-isolate for any length of time or in the event of a school closure, we will provide them with remote learning.

 

Our Remote Learning is offered through Microsoft Office, using the OneNote App. Watch the videos below for support on how to access OneNote for the first time and how to navigate the platform.

 

Please see the tutorials below for guidance when using OneNote for the first time.

Usernames and Passwords

All children have a unique username and password to access their classes remote learning through Microsoft OneNote.  If you have not picked up your child's exercise book yet, please pop to the school office as soon as you are able to. Their login details are written inside the front cover.

 

All usernames follow the same format. firstname.surname@mendipgreen.extendlearning.org

You will need to add @mendipgreen.extendlearning.org to complete your child's username.

Exercise Books

All children have an exercise book with their username and password inside the front cover.  If you have not collected yours yet, please pop and see us.

We have spare books available in the foyer if you need a new one.  Pop in any time and help yourself to what you need (these have a light blue cover and are for all children EYFS - Year 6).  We also have spare books with buff paper available - please ask in the school office if your child needs a new one of these.

Sequence of Learning

Our Remote Learning provision through Microsoft OneNote is sequential and builds upon prior knowledge. If your child has missed any of their learning due to illness or technical difficulties, they should pick the learning up from the last point they were working rather than the calendar date on each OneNote page.

 

Teachers will call the children in the class each week to discuss learning and provide feedback.

 

World Book Day

World Book Day is just around the corner and Team Mendip are VERY excited.  As a reading school, we have a real passion for growing a love of reading amongst our children but, with the move to online learning and the unexpected challenges of sharing books during a pandemic, the last year has been hard! We are so looking forward to the day when we can load the children up with library books and all sit together and share a story again!

 

We are determined that World Book Day 2021 is not going to sneak by us so we have a fantastic day planned for children at home and in school.

 

What is World Book Day?

  • World Book Day changes lives through a love of books and shared reading.
  • It aims to promote reading for pleasure, offering every child and young person the opportunity to have a book of their own.
  • Reading for pleasure is the single biggest indicator of a child’s future success – more than their family circumstances, their parents’ educational background or their income.
  • The World Book Day Charity want to see more children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, with a life-long habit of reading for pleasure and the improved life chances this brings them.
  • Designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, World Book Day is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.

 

We will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 4th March 2021. The children in school and at home will be be able to take part in a host of bookish activities to help support the growth of a love of reading.

Below are some grids with ideas of activities that children can choose from:

Why not join in the fun and take part in one of our World Book Day competitions to be in with the chance of winning a fantastic book bundle. 

Our competitions are for all current pupils at Mendip Green Primary School.  Competitions open on World Book Day and close at 8pm on Sunday 7th March.  Winners will be announced in our next assembly.

Offline Day

As part of Children's Mental Health Week, on Friday 5th February 2021, the children in school and at home will be taking part in an Offline Day This will offer a break away from ‘the normal,’ an opportunity to be creative, have some exercise, take some time to be calm and to explore nature.

Below are some grids with ideas of activities that children can choose from:

Buffer Packs

Below are buffer packs which your child can use to support their learning in the event that they can not access the provision through OneNote.  Please contact us to let us know if you are having problems accessing the Remote Learning provision so we can get you back online as soon as possible.

Useful Web Links and Activities

TTRS and Sumdog Passwords

 

We are getting lots of requests for password reminders and resets for Timestable Rock Stars (Years 3 - 6) and Sumdog (EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2).

 

All of the Year 3 - Year 6 children who were with Mrs Buttery and Mrs Findlay for maths should now have access to Sumdog as well as TTRS. We set these accounts up before the closure but ran out of time to share all of the passwords with the children - please get in contact for your login details.

We have now extended our Sumdog subscription to include EYFS - please get in contact for your login details.

 

If you need a reset, reminder or details of a new account so you can access either Sumdog or TTRS, please email us on it.support@mendipgreen.extendlearning.org  
Please provide your child's full name and class number in the email to ensure we can match them up with the correct account details.
 
It may take us a few days to process these requests as it is likely to be an evening or weekend job. Please bear with us.
