We are always thinking of different things to do to stay connected through a lockdown, and we are excited to offer families a trio of ‘Lockdown Lives’ this half term. These are live events which we will host and are themed. The theme of this term is ‘Teddington Teachers Before Teaching’. These are all teachers of STEM who have had a colourful range of experiences before settling as a teacher, and have interesting stories to tell. This is a good opportunity for teachers to tell students and families about their education, careers (and career changes) and what they have learnt along the way. Each live event will last 30 minutes and we will send you a link to the event in the morning of the day which will direct you there. Just fill in the form with which ones you would like to attend!
What is my child learning?
We have adapted our curriculum to ensure that the topics are suitable for learning at home. This sheet is an overview of what each year group is learning in each subject for this half term and how the students are going to be assessed.
Information for parents about our remote learning provision
The below is information about the remote learning provision at Teddington School which is general to any student who is self isolating at any point, including when the school is open.
Support in Teams
Below is a video showing how to log in to Teams and use the functions.
We are conscious that students are having a lot of screen time at the moment. Please see our Alternative Learning document which has been updated for Spring 2021, to offer students and families some relevant suggestions away from the laptop.
