Welcome back to school!

Mask

As we enter our hybrid model there are some important things to know.

Music will be an online subject which takes place on the days when you have remote learning.
It is on your schedules and I will be waiting to work with you online.
My music link never changes just join the class as you usually do, albeit at a different time and, probably, day.
Please check your schedules!

I am delighted to see you all again and will smile, masked, and wave, from a distance, on the days you are in school!

Don’t forget to wave to me too!

Online Learning

zoomcartoon (1)

Unfortunately, the current COVID conditions have, once again, necessitated a return to online learning.
I will be meeting my classes on classroom and zoom as we follow our normal class tinetables and schedules. Music classes will start on Tuesday, April 20th.
EY1 to EY3 will use zoom whilst Grades 1 to 5 will use google classroom, exactly as we did last tine.
Your homeroom teachers will share the zoom link with you.

In all classes we will be working with both synchronous sessions (participating in class/group activities on-line via Zoom or Google meets) and asynchronous (working offline mostly, at our workstations at home). Some examples of what this might look like during our music sessions are activities that can be recorded to be uploaded to seesawor multimedia art projects which reflect the students’ understanding of what we are inquiring into.
Your child’s Homeroom Teachers will share our zoom links for EY1 to G1 and Google Meets links for G2 to G5.
They will also share with you their Class Weekly Schedules which includes specialist music classes so that you and your child are able to plan ahead and be ready to begin each of our sessions throughout the week.
Additionally, you are able to find the Learning Intentions for music, along with the related resources needed to engage with the class, in the “what you will need for the week ahead” document which is shared by the Homeroom Teachers on Friday afternoons.
I hope you all had an excellent break and look forward to seeing you all again.
Mr. Chris
