Information and Expectations

Years 1 & 2 Online Learning

Our aim in Year 1 and Year 2 is to continue to provide high quality online learning for your children through MS Teams if the following was to occur:

  • Your child’s class bubble has to isolate
  • Your child is isolating as a household member is displaying symptoms or has tested positive
  • Your child is shielding due to medical reasons

This will ensure no children fall behind. The focus for the learning will be on Phonics, Maths and Reading. The children all have an email and MS Team account. Year 2 children have been taught in school how to access this and are familiar with some of the key features they will need to use. Year 1 children will need a bit more help from their parents, family members or carers.

In order for online learning to be successful, teachers and families have to work in partnership and therefore it is important to recognise the responsibilities and expectations.

Shenton Primary School will:

  • Provide high quality lessons via MS Teams
  • Plan lessons following the National Curriculum for your child’s year group
  • Email the children instructions and respond to any queries promptly
  • Follow the school’s behaviour policy
  • Take the attendance register for each lesson

Parents/Carers will:

  • Ensure children attend the online lessons every day
  • Ensure children have access to a fully charged laptop or tablet with internet access
  • Help the child set up and then leave them to work as independently as possible (some children will require more support so please be ready to help them but don’t tell them the answers)
  • Seek help from the school if issues arise and support is needed
  • Praise the child


  • Work in a quiet room away from distractions
  • Sit upright on a chair and have the laptop or tablet on a table
  • Use positive language and follow the school behaviour policy at all times
  • Dress appropriately
  • Have their book and pencil ready
  • Have the camera on so the teacher can see you
  • Have the microphone on mute when you are not speaking (Maths lessons)
  • If you have a question use the comments section or raise your hand button
  • Attend all lessons daily
  • Leave the lesson once directed by your teacher
  • Follow the school user acceptable policy
  • If you have any further concerns or questions about your work, email your teacher


Once your child is able to come back to school, they will need to bring their home learning book back.

If you have any queries please ring the school office or email Mrs Al-Najar on
