The Thorpe Hall community has adapted quickly to a new way of working. Our extensive home learning programme has been in place since 23rd March and covers a broad academic and co-curricular curriculum across all Key Stages. It is underpinned by the smart use of technology and the best educational apps and collaborative working platforms. It is driven by our dedicated teachers who are working tirelessly to make sure the home learning solution delivered meets the needs of our pupils and their families and continues to be the best it can be.
We are delivering lessons, tasks and resources and communicating with families via the below methods.
UPPER SCHOOL PUPILS
Remote Lessons are being delivered via Microsoft Teams (available on your child’s school iPad).
Lessons take the form of online audio/video conferencing, worksheets, and other resources and apps as appropriate. If required, Microsoft Teams can also be accessed on an alternative device by visiting https://teams.microsoft.com/start and logging in with your child’s school email address and password.
