Remote Learning

We have established remote learning systems to enable students to continue their learning every day at home, should this be required.

Links to each system are available at the top of this website. Details of how to make best use of our remote learning, by year group, are available below.

Live Lessons

A large number of live online lessons will be provided for students in this period of lockdown in addition to the resources on Myvle. The frequency of provision of live online lessons will depend on the subject but there will be at least one live lesson per subject each week and more than one for subjects that would normally see students 3 or 4 times per week in school. When live lessons are not provided instructions for study will be given on Class Charts in the homework section.

Students should check their timetable on Class Charts daily for links to live lessons, which will be scheduled to happen at the times indicated on the students’ normal school timetables. Each live lesson will be approximately 30-40 minutes in length.

Students should also check their homework section on Class Charts daily for details of follow up work or what to do when there is no live lesson.

All students and parents have been given login details to access Class Charts. If you have lost your login details, please email info@ladymanners.derbyshire.sch.uk.

Accessing Live Lessons (click here for details)

Live lessons are delivered using Google Meet, for which students must have activated their school Gmail account. Students in years 8-13 should have done this already, during the summer 2020 lockdown.

If the Gmail account has not been activated, students should activate the account that the school has set up for them as follows:

  • Use Google Chrome or Safari web-browser
  • Watch this video first
  • Go to  www.gmail.com 
  • Important: Log out of any personal Gmail accounts if any have been set up previously
  • At the sign in screen student should use their school email address (username@ladymanners.derbyshire.sch.uk) and Gmail password (sent to students at the time when live lessons were launched to that year group)
  • Note that students are setting up a Gmail account but they will not have access to Gmail. The message on the screen will tell the student that they do not have access to Gmail but don't worry, they have logged on successfully. This is just to allow students to attend live lessons through a Google Meet.
  • If students have trouble accessing Google Meets or have forgotten their Gmail password, they should email info@ladymanners.derbyshire.sch.uk.

At the start of each lesson, using the device they will use to join the online lesson, students should make sure they can access Google Meet by signing in to their school Gmail account with their school username (username@ladymanners.derbyshire.sch.uk).

Links to access live lessons will always be given via the student timetable on Class Charts.

Remote Learning Information by Year Group

Year 7 (click here for details)

Class Charts

Class Charts will be used to give links for the Google Meet live lessons. These codes will be included in each student's timetable in Class Charts as this is the easiest way of them getting into the right lesson at the right time. Live lessons will take place when students would have had that lesson in school. These lessons will last for 30-40 minutes to allow time for students to have a breather from sitting in front of a screen between lessons or to complete a task independently set by the teacher.

Teachers will use the homework facility on Class Charts to indicate any work they want students to submit for written feedback and this can be uploaded to Class Charts directly by students.

The homework facility will also be how students are directed to which resources they need from Myvle either as a follow up to a live lesson or in place of a live lesson so it is important that students check their timetable and homework sections of Class Charts daily.

You can also use Class Charts to check when live lessons are happening and what has been set via the homework option and if work needs to be submitted it will tell you when it is due to be submitted. When students are learning remotely they may be asked to submit their work by uploading it to Class Charts or by handing it in upon their return to school.

Students will be given regular verbal feedback via live lessons and written feedback will be given in line with our normal homework feedback patterns.

Myvle

The main place for students to access remote learning resources to support or in place of live lessons is from our school virtual learning environment known as Myvle. From the school website (www.ladymanners.net) there is a link to Myvle.

To access Myvle, students will need to use their school username and password.

Each year group has a page per subject with learning resources for students to use.

The resources may not match exactly the live lesson as the teacher has a big input into lessons which cannot be fully replicated through independent study. However, the resources provided on Myvle do cover the same topics as we cover them in school and should enable students to work independently at times and to access support materials.

Below is an example of how units of work on Myvle are set up on a Myvle page for Geography:

Once you have scrolled down to the topic students have been asked to complete by their teacher via the homework information on Class Charts, you will see a list of folders and in particular the 'Lesson Resources' folder should be visible (see example below):

In the 'Lesson Resources' folder you will find the activities and resources that students can use to keep up with the learning for that topic. It will usually be sequenced so that the items at the top would be the ones done first. Exactly where to start will depend on what the teacher has directed the students to do in that topic on the Class Charts homework section. If in doubt, start with something familiar as a consolidation of previous learning to build confidence is also key to ensuring students don’t have gaps in their knowledge.

Remember that this work will not be identical to the work done in live lessons but will help to ensure that students keep up with the topic.

Some departments may have put links to other websites here, such as Oak Academy, as these websites are interactive and have closely matched learning activities with those done in school.

The folder entitled 'Knowledge Builders' will have a summary document of the key learning for a topic and this document is also given to students in school in lessons to help review and consolidate key learning. Looking at the key knowledge and vocabulary on here will help students to transition back into learning in school.

(Please note that the other two folders for wider reading and research and revision are less essential at this stage as we are currently building up these resources. For now, we are prioritising day-to-day learning so these wider resources may be less developed at this stage).

Year 11 (click here for details)

Class Charts

Students should check Class Charts daily to find:

  • links to live lessons on their timetable
  • instructions about any other remote learning the teacher has set in the homework section. This will include instructions for any work from Myvle and any links to other sites/resources.
  • Teachers will also use the homework section to set homework that students need to submit on Class Charts for feedback/marking.

The Class Charts homework section will also contain details of what has been set by each teacher and when it is due to be submitted. When learning remotely students may be asked to submit their work by uploading it to Class Charts or by handing it in upon their return to school. We will attempt to set homework of this type with the same frequency as when students are in school. Teachers will also use live lessons to give lots of verbal feedback to students on any work set between live lessons or during them.

Most Year 11 lessons will be in the form of live lessons and always at the time that the lesson would have happened in school. These lessons will last for at least 30-40 minutes and will allow time for students to have a breather from sitting in front of a screen between lessons or to complete a task independently set by the teacher. It is crucial that all students attend as teachers will be finishing courses and consolidating knowledge to prepare students for the next steps in their education.

The example of a section from an English Myvle page below shows the topics being studied each term listed in order:

Once you have scrolled down to the current topic, you will see a list of folders and in particular the 'Lesson Resources' folder should be visible (see example below from maths):

In the 'Lesson Resources' folder you will find the activities and resources to use to keep up with the learning for that topic. It will usually be sequenced so that the items at the top would be the ones done first. Exactly where to start will depend on what instructions the teacher has given in live lessons or on the homework section on Class Charts. If in doubt, students should start with something familiar. Consolidating learning is a really good thing to do before starting anything new.

Remember that this work will not be identical to the work done in live lessons so it is vital that students attend all live lessons whenever possible. This will help to ensure that students keep up with the topic.
