How Will FLEX@PoP Work?

Routine is important to everybody.  It makes us feel comfortable, often makes us more productive and helps with reducing stress and anxiety through knowing what to expect and being able to reduce mental fatigue.

School Uniform? Part of routine is what you wear.  It is important that students dress appropriately for ‘school’, in particular if they are going to be video conferencing that day.  At best, our free-dress day rules apply.  How we dress is a reminder to our brain about what ‘mode’ it is.  A pyjama day on occasion is never a bad thing – but 6 months of them is not going to lead to any positive work routines or a focused frame of mind.  So, while not essential, some families may find that having your child put their uniform on, even just their sports top, helps with a concrete reminder that it is time for learning.  Uniforms are also about community.  We wear the uniform of our favourite sports team because it makes us feel part of something.  For students who may be quite isolated for a while from their peers and friends, the uniform is also a reminder that they are still part of a community, and a link with others they see also wearing it.

Create a designated working area.  Make sure your child has a space that is dedicated, for each day at least, to their school work.  Check for distractions – TVs, toys close by, the main walkway of the house, all probably not conducive to great work.  A well-lit space is essential, as is fresh air.  Given many students will possibly be using video conferencing with small groups, it is also important to think about what is in the background.  Bedrooms are not a great space, but neither is an area where the background could be distracting to other students who might be watching the screen.

Water?  Check!

All year levels will have a ‘check in’ time every morning.

  • Junior classes will mark themselves ‘present’ via Seesaw
  • Senior classes will mark themselves ‘present’ in SEQTA through a poll in ‘my courses’.

Classes will still run devotional times, with either content available online for students, or perhaps done as a live link with the class.  This may not always happen first thing in the morning.

For most classes, there will be flexibility in the order and times that students and families choose to work on a particular learning programme.  Times and breaks will be recommended, but not with set times so families at home can work around other things happening in the house.

Some check in times will be fixed, however, where teachers may connect either 1:1, or in small groups.  This could be for learning or teaching to a specific skill at times, or just for social check-ins at other times.

Year 7 – 12 students will still make contact most often with a subject teacher during their standard timetabled lessons.  But, this does not mean that the way a student works at home has to be dictated by the timetable at all – just the typical contact times with their class or teacher.

For students in Prep to Year 6, a Direqt Message will be sent to parents by 7pm the evening prior, explaining the learning for the next day. A flexible timetable will be set out for parents to follow.

For Prep – Year 3, the bulk of the teaching materials and content will be contained in this communication.

From Year 4 upwards, the majority of the work needed will be found through the class’ Microsoft Teams or OneNote systems.

For Year 7 upwards, larger units of work may be released at certain times, but you can still expect a daily post for each timetabled subject for the day with instructions in SEQTA Learn.

For those students on site at the College, they will be working on the same programme. Teaching staff will be checking in with their students very regularly, whether on site or not.

Staff will be relatively available for their students during the day – but just like normal school days they’re not available 100%.  There will be times where they are marking, planning, speaking with other students or having lunch!  Each class will know the best way to communicate with their teacher.  For many, this will be through chat functions in Teams or a DM in Learn, but it won’t always be.

Staff will look to answer communication via DM from parents within 24 hours where possible, but as soon as practicable.  We won’t be expecting them to respond after 4pm as they will need to step away from a device (like we all should a little more often).

During the day, we ask parents to respect what is still essentially a classroom.  If your child is video conferencing with other students, we would ask that you are respectful of the privacy of that conversation and are not part of it, though, we understand for very young students this becomes increasingly difficult or non-practical.  However, if it is just your child and their teacher, then we will ask that you are part of that.

We plan to be checking in very regularly with our students.  We plan to be checking in very regularly with you as well.  We are fortunate that the way we have been working since moving into digital workspaces means that many of the ways in which our students learn do not need to change significantly.  But, working flexibly and often remotely is going to be new for all nearly of us, and we want to ensure we are hitting the mark.  Are we not communicating enough, or communicating too much?  Is there feedback you or your child needs to further improve their learning?  Contact your child’s teacher and let us know.

Select a Year Level for Specific FLEX@PoP Information:

Prep – Year 3

Students in Prep to Year 3 will receive a tailored programme through FLEX@PoP which recognises their unique learning needs for activity, short learning sequences and play. The greatest enhancement tool to the prepared learning sequences by our teachers will be an iPad. If you are unable to access an iPad at home, we ask that you contact your child’s teacher for more information.

A few key reminders:

  • Ensure your child is connected to Seesaw and that you have activated your parent account by logging in through the link sent to you by your child’s classroom teacher. If you have any difficulty, please contact your child’s teacher.
  • A selection of key resources will be sent home with your child to supplement their learning and make it feel as seamless as possible. This will include things such as a show me board (Whiteboard) and whiteboard marker, workbooks, readers, sheets and the like.
  • The daily activities for the day will cater to their physical, academic, spiritual and social needs (although we certainly encourage further parent organised social interactions via safe methods such as FaceTime, Zoom video conferencing and Skype, to name a few).
  • Each year level has outlined a suggested daily plan. This is provided as a guide for you. It is a reminder of the key components to include in your child’s day and can be tailored by you every day to meet the unique circumstances of your household that day.
  • Please be aware that some content may be delivered by watching videos from YouTube. In a school environment these are supervised by teachers to ensure that they only watch the intended content. It is important that devices are not used by students without parent supervision. The same digital safety measures we have in place for students when working at school, such as our firewall, are not available when working at home. Vigilance is required.
  • When all else fails, READ! Read to each other, read to yourself, FaceTime a friend and read to them. Read, Read, Read! Not only is it some of the best learning around, but it is a wonderful family activity to share together. And don’t forget to use the funny voices that our students love so much!

How will students access the learning plan for their year level/class?

  • Parents will receive a daily learning plan via email every evening by 7:00pm.
  • Students are to login to their Seesaw account each morning to complete the Roll Call task by 8:30am.
  • Tasks will include: sound work (Initial Lit), reading, handwriting, creative play, fine motor and phonics work, brain breaks, other learning areas, specialist lessons and Mathematics.
  • Many tasks will involve utilising Seesaw, Reading Eggs and other specific learning links.
  • Students will be asked to show their learning through the Seesaw app so that the teacher can monitor their progress.
  • Specialists lessons will be allocated to a particular day and lessons will be provided in these areas too.

If you or your child are experiencing difficulties, what do you do?

  • In the first instance, contact your child’s teacher as you would by email. If it is in regard to a specialist area, please contact them directly via their College email address.
  • Class teachers will be available to respond to questions via Seesaw, whether that be from the parent account or from the student’s Seesaw account.
  • Teachers will be checking Seesaw messages and their emails intermittently between 8:30am and 3:00pm each school day.
  • In the event that your child’s teacher is absent or unable to respond within a 24 hour period, then families will be advised via email or Seesaw of plans for this absence.

How often can parents/students expect to hear from their teacher/s?

  • Classroom teachers will email their parent group every evening by 7pm. This will outline the activities for the next school day and will direct you to any particular learning links or resources you may need. This email will include a suggested day plan for learning.
  • Once lessons have commenced at home, teachers will begin preparing lessons for the following day and will monitor student learning via their teacher Seesaw platform or email.
  • All parents are asked to sign up for the free version of Zoom, a video conferencing app. It is our intention to work towards enabling at least one face to face video chat with students and their teachers each week. This will most likely occur in small groups on a designated day and time.
  • Classroom teachers will be phoning all families every 2-3 weeks to check in on how things are going. This is just like the ‘chat at the classroom door’ – it is simple, it is quick and it is to say ‘Hi’. Please be mindful that our staff need to maintain focus on their online learning delivery as a priority. If you require a longer meeting, please arrange a phone meeting as normal. Thank you for your assistance with this.
