Term 2 distance learning updates for our senior students

Kia ora te whanau o te Kotuku
I hope you and your whanau are bubbling along nicely within your own personal rahui.
We are looking to comply with the stay at home, work from home and keep your bubbles as small as possible principles in our process. The more we can minimise contact then I feel that we will be doing our best to keep the health, safety and wellbeing of our rangatahi, kaiako and respective whanau and community safe. Please don’t come into school during alert level 3.
A reminder that Monday, 27 April is a public holiday and Tuesday, 28 April is a teacher only day. This will be virtual for teachers, no staff will be on site. A handful of teachers return on Wednesday, April 29 to supervise a small number of Year 9 and 10 students while they work on their distance learning.
Distance learning will start back on Wednesday, 29 April with a refreshed online learning programme for seniors. The purpose of working to the end of the original term time was so that we could capitalise on the prior teaching and learning that had occurred and support assessments that were nearing completion dates at the end of term 1.
As we return from our break into Term 2, we will start phase 2 of our distance learning plan for our NCEA students. The reason for the adjustment is that as we start a new term there is a need for new teaching and learning to take place. Most senior classes will be starting new assessments and there is a need to move to a more structured timetable. A copy of this timetable is attached.
What to expect/what you need to know
• The timetable is for senior NCEA subjects only. It runs to the same timetable as their classes at school. Students can find their timetables on the student portal.
• Teachers will be available to connect with students and respond to questions through Google classroom during the timetabled class.
• Students are required to report into class during the timetabled slot.
• A minimum of one session per class each week is an interactive class using Google Meet. There is no expectation for teachers to use Google Meet for every 25-minute slot however if teachers are able to do more than one, this is encouraged.
• Tutor teachers will be available at tutor time to answer questions through Google classroom or email. Tutor time is an opportunity to provide support for students who are not engaging fully, need advice or maybe feeling anxious.
The following information has already been communicated with staff
• Do not expect students to be engaged with your subject when timetabled for other classes.
• Be mindful of student wellbeing and workload.
• Be aware that students need to spread their workload over all subjects.
• Advise students of your expectations, scheduled Google Meet class times and tasks at the beginning of the week. (Students make sure you tune in to the first meeting of the week so that you can get organised.
• It is advisable to introduce any new topics or standards with a Google Meet session.
• Teaching is to be directed towards pre-teaching assessment standard material rather than non-specific subject work.
• Internally assessed standards are preferable. This may not be possible for practical subjects.
• Students have not been given a defined number of hours per day they are expected to be engaged with classwork, rather they need clear expectations on when work is due.
• Be flexible with deadlines.
Term 2 - Attendance and engagement monitoring procedure for senior students
As the lockdown extends, it has become more important that we find a way to establish that students are connecting with their teachers, accessing online resources and are actively engaged with their learning. In order to ascertain this, we are launching a system for students to check-in’ each day, this will become a ‘must-do’.
The check-in will not only serve as a virtual attendance and provide the school with an overview of how many of our students are online and engaging but will also be a place that students can let us know about how they are coping with the changes in their learning and the lockdown in general. This will make us better able to provide support and assistance to students as required.
A 'Senior School Google Classroom' has been created, where students can access the daily check-in form. Mr Simpson will post this every morning. The code for that classroom is 5wpvtqr. The form will be open each morning between 9.00 and 11.00 and students are required to log onto the Senior School Google Classroom each day, click the daily link and complete the form as instructed. This is a high trust model where students enter it for themselves. This allows the time online with teachers to be about teaching and learning and not taken up with attendance recording.
