Live Online Lessons

During the lockdown during the summer, each class provided weekly live online lessons using Zoom in either English or maths. These were intended to provide not only academic learning but also the critical element of social interaction with both peers and teachers.

Mellis School is currently upgrading to fibreoptic broadband to improve both the very poor reliability of the digital connection we currently have, and to therefore expand the capacity of the School to deliver such lessons. This is taking place at the moment, and we will advise on progress in due course.

The Learning Platform

During the initial lockdown, Mellis School successfully used the School's Learning Platform to allow all pupils access to class specific learning and social interactions with their peers.

All pupils have assigned usernames and passwords, which can be used via the log-in at the bottom right of the School website. Please contact the School directly for these usernames/passwords if necessary.

Once logged in, children and parents can:

1) Access their class page, whole class blogs/forums and whole school community pages

2) Access daily year group specific English, Maths and Foundation subject tasks and to submit their work digitally - note that EYFS will provide content appropriate to this year group.

3) Receive feedback from teachers and TAs

4) Use the Learning Platform to email classmates, create blogs and forum discussions with their peers, and to upload videos/work to these.
