Working from Home

Throughout this year, there may be times when your child is required to work from home. This is like to be due to isolation caused by the current COVID restrictions or the possibility of Year group or whole school lock downs. We can split working from home into two sections, home learning and homework.

 

 

 

Home Learning

Home learning is when your child is required to continue with their classwork from home. Providing your child is well enough to work, they can find the work they need to carry on with in Microsoft Teams. All students have been taught how to access work from Teams, they need to start by heading to this website: https://portal.office.com/.

This video goes through the process of logging in to Microsoft Teams and finding assignments set by your child's teacher:

 

 

 

 

Homework

Homework is work completed outside of school by your child while they are still attending school on a daily basis. The aim of homework at QKA is to reinforce learning and encourage independent working skills. All homework at QKA is assigned on ShowMyHomework, but external websites may be used for them to actually complete the work. ShowMyHomework is the main hub for your and your child to see what homework they need to complete and it is important that they are able to access it from home.

You can access ShowMyHomework on any internet enabled device by heading to https://qka.satchelone.com/ and clicking 'Sign In with Office365'. The Satchel One app can also be downloaded on smartphones/tablets using Android/iOS for an easy place to find your child's work. The video and guide below have been created to help with the login process:
