Each day during remote learning, classroom teachers will be providing learning tasks through Google Classroom (Prep to Grade 3) and O365 Teams (Grade 4 - 6). However, we understand that for various reasons it isn’t always possible to complete these. Below are learning tasks that don’t require access to the internet or other technology.

Non-Screen Activities

What can you do when there's no school and you're stuck at home? Here are 25 fun ideas to choose from. It is encouraged that if you want to do some real-life learning, such as cooking with your child, or grocery shopping, make sure you use these opportunities to have discussions with your child. Ask them questions and allow them to ask you questions. Find the learning in what you are doing. For example, if you modify the quantities in a recipe, look at the maths. In addition, look at reading and following a procedure.

 

Online Learning Expectations

 

Video Conferencing Expectations.

Please click here for some expectations the school has in place to best support the students and the staff for video conferencing.

As students will be set up with either a Google Classroom account (Prep to Grade 3) or an O365 Teams account (Grade 4 to 6) for their learning, CGPS have created the following guidelines.

  • Teachers will be available between the hours of 9:00a.m. and 3:30p.m. and will have a daily timetable set for their class. It is important to develop routine to assist the learning.

  • Students should be using this time (between the hours of 9:00a.m. and 3:30p.m.) for their learning. If a student is found to be accessing the learning outside of these times, especially late at night, their classroom teacher may contact you via email or phone to discuss. It is important that students develop a routine of learning throughout the day when they are fresh as this is when the best learning occurs.

  • We encourage student discussions and all discussions will be monitored by the teacher. The discussions are strictly learning based. Students are asked to reply only to any teacher posting on the chat. This may include questions they’ve asked or any work that they have assigned. Under no circumstance should students create their own chat.

  • Any inappropriate discussions on the chat will be dealt with by the classroom teacher and if the problems persist by the Principals. Inappropriate discussions include, but not limited to:

     o Discussions about the weekend

    o Discussions about connecting on Social Media and through online games

    o Cyberbullying
