Students can download the Teams application to a device at home but if they do not want to do this they can access a cloud-based version by logging into Microsoft office 365 using this link https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/log-in or typing it into the browser (Chrome tends to work best).
Students can log in to Teams using their school email address and password.
Once logged into Teams they will see their classes.
KS3 live lessons will be minimum 30 minutes.
KS4 live lessons will be minimum of 40 minutes and include a set activity.

W/c 11th Jan 2021:
At this time of the year it is important that we are staying active and keeping healthy. As you have probably seen on the school Instagram (oca_enrichment) there is a new challenge live for you to compete in to win a prize.
The aim is to cover as many kilometres as possible over the course of the week. The target to reach is 5k, obviously the more you cover, the more chance you have of winning. You can do this either by walking, jogging or running. Make sure you have an app that can track the distance that you make and submit your progress to the Instagram, attach a screenshot of your progress to the assignments tab or to firstname.lastname@example.org (remember to put your name, form and house). Good luck!
Some helpful apps are:
Department for Education
Guidance for supporting children who are learning at home
Parent helpline for Home Learning (suggested learning on how to chunk the day)
