Gwernyfed Cluster Home Learning:
As a cluster, we have all worked extremely hard in providing exciting and engaging work for our pupils to complete whilst out of school during these unprecedented times.
This video showcases a glimpse of what pupils have been up to so far… https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Zvck7GTqVWRyqx-45Nz5oFpENNNanM4V/view?usp=sharing
Home Learning – We have added lots of useful websites for you and your children to access. Each class has been given tasks. These can be accessed on Teams if you haven’t got a copy. Please let us know if there’s anything you need.
To access our video chats on Teams, please use the video below to help.
All classes will be using the Team application which is free on Hwb. This application allows the children to message the teacher and upload work for marking. The instructions have been sent home with the children, but if your child was not in school please use the link below.
https://hwb.gov.wales Hwb – including J2E which the children know how to use. The Encyclopaedia Brittanica is also available for free as is Microsoft Office.
J2Blast is accessed on Hwb -> J2E. There is a programme called J2Blast where they can do spelling and maths activities for free. They can also play against their school friends.
