Virtual Learning Resources

This page explains our new virtual learning arrangements for the summer term, including details of our comprehensive student guide to working from home.

Parents, if you or your child are struggling with accessing resources please email info@harriscrystalpalace.org.uk and we will get back to you asap. This will then be forwarded to the teacher who will respond to you as soon as possible. Thank you.


Years 10-12

Lessons for all students in Years 10-12 will now take place using Microsoft Teams. Full details of how to access Microsoft Teams can be found in our new student guide to working from home (see below).

  • Year 10 will have four live lessons per day (each lesson is 80 minutes)
  • Year 11 will have one live lesson per week for subject they have chosen for Post 16 Study
  • Year 12 will have two lessons per week per subject studied (each lesson is 150 mins)

When students login they will find classes, subjects and year groups are already allocated in MS Teams. Students should sign into Microsoft Teams at least five minutes before the live lesson starts and can join by clicking the link sent to their team by their teachers. 

In addition to lessons, other work such as assignments and quizzes will also now be set through Microsoft Teams. However, teachers will continue to set work via Show My Homework too.

It is the expectation that students in Year 10 who are studying for their GCSE subjects should complete an additional hour of study each evening. This is to replace the study they would normally be completing with homework.


Years 7-9

Live lessons for all students in Years 7-9 will take place with Microsoft Teams, with a new timetable. They will have three one-hour lessons and one 30-minute lesson each day.

Independent work packs for Years 7-9 

Students all have Show My Homework logins, but if there are any issues please email CheungK@harriscrystalpalace.org.uk and we will reset passwords. Here's a short guide to submitting work on Show My Homework. Years 7-10 also have access to Bedrock Vocabulary from home.


Managing your time

We understand that educating your child at home can be challenging and we are always thinking of new ways to support you at this difficult time.

As a school, we are recommending creating a schedule for your son or daughter to follow during the period of school closure. Having a structure that they can follow each day will help them stay focused on their education and provide structure for you and your household.

However, we are very aware that this may not work for every household or for students of different ages. Creating a bespoke schedule together with your child can be a great tool to motivate, empower and focus them. It also allows you to plan in any activities that are specific to your household, such as looking after younger siblings, exercise, helping prepare food and much-needed family time.

Please be realistic with your planning, and remember that this is an unprecedented situation, please plan what works best for you and your family whilst giving your son or daughter the best opportunity to continue their education.


Twinkl

To support you during this period, an online educational resources platform, Twinkl, is offering every parent and carer in England access to all Twinkl resources with a one month membership, free of charge.

They have at home learning packs on the link below which you can use to support studying from home, as well as a large bank of subject specific resources. Find out more. To sign up, go to www.twinkl.co.uk/offer and enter the code UKTWINKLHELPS


Safeguarding

For safeguarding reasons, teachers are not permitted to give out their telephone numbers but pupils will be able to email into the school, and the school switchboard will continue to be operational.

If during a temporary closure of the school you or your child need to reach us, our telephone number is 020 7622 0026 and our email address is info@harriscrystalpalace.org.uk.

The most urgent enquiries, including safeguarding issues for any vulnerable pupils, will be answered first. If your enquiry is not urgent, please bear with us if there is a delay in responding.
