Remote learning

We have put the following remote learning in place to ensure children continue with their school work if they are absent from school due to COVID-19.

  • The learning matches what is being taught in class and it is essential your child completes all activities to the best of their ability each day.
  • Remote learning will be uploaded to Microsoft Teams by 10am each day. Click here for a guide to using Microsoft Teams
  • After each lesson your child will need to turn in their learning and complete a lesson reflection. This can be written or recorded and contain what they found challenging, how they overcame that challenge and share any successes from their learning.
  • The lesson reflections can be added to the assignment on Teams or emailed to admin@falconbrook.net with the child’s first name and class as the subject line by 4.00pm each day.

Communication with your child’s teacher:

  • You will receive a telephone call from the class teacher on the child’s second day of absence/first day of remote learning set
  • Children can post on the class team page on Teams (we will aim to reply within 24 hours)
  • You can email admin@falconbrook.net (we will aim to reply within 24 hours)

If you have any questions please either telephone the school or email admin@falconbrook.net
