Using Assignments on Teams


Your child’s assignments will stay in their ‘to do’ list until they have clicked ‘Hand In.’ When your child has completed the assignment, they need to click ‘add work’ to show the teacher what they have done and then click ‘Hand In’ so the teacher knows they have completed the task. Adding work could simply be a picture of your child doing something at home or a picture of the completed task in their jotter. If your child is not going to complete an assignment, which is absolutely fine if they don’t do everything every week, you can click ‘Hand In’ without adding any work and this will get the assignment out of the ‘to do’ list and reduce any stress if your child sees it sitting in red saying ‘overdue.’ Also, if you click ‘Hand In’ by mistake before adding any work, you can click ‘Undo Hand In’ and you’ll have the ‘add work’ option again.

Returned Assignments 

When your child gets a notification to say an assignment has been ‘returned,’ this does not mean they have done anything wrong. This just means the teacher has seen it and is removing it from their ‘to mark’ list. The assignment may also have been returned with some feedback from the teacher on it. Here is a link to a video that shows you how to use the assignments function on Teams.

P1 Amended letter

Please see below an amended version of our Learning at Home letter with details about Book and a Biscuit and how to access Learning at Home Jotters. New details in bold for clarity.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to Primary One Learning at Home.

As you will already know, all our online content will be accessible on TEAMS. We will upload a weekly learning grid for the following week on a Friday. This will include a variety of curricular areas. In addition, a daily task for literacy and numeracy will be posted on your class TEAM page (Mon-Thurs). Please do not feel that you must complete every task each week. We would advise prioritising the daily literacy and numeracy tasks. Please remember that in school, the children would be learning through play for a large part of the day and be kind to yourselves! During the school day the children would be working with an adult for around 10 minutes direct teaching, at various times.

We will be available to answer queries about your child’s learning and give feedback on work during the school day (8.30-3.00 Mon-Thurs/8.30-12 on Fri). We will try to respond to you within 24 hours of your enquiry. Each week from Monday to Thursday we will have a check-in through a ‘book and biscuit’. You will receive an invite via TEAMS and this will be from 11-11.30. This will give the children an opportunity to see their teacher and their friends whilst listening to a story. 

Each child was issued with a green ‘Learning at Home’ jotter earlier this year. This contains your Oxford Owl log-in and a ‘How to Help at Home’ section with useful websites for you to use. Children can do their work in this jotter. If you do not have a Learning at Home jotter, or need a new one, please collect one from the crate that will be outside the main school entrance over the weekend.

Please remember that learning happens in a variety of ways – for example, baking a cake with an adult involves a lot of maths and following instructions. Please take this time to have some fun learning at home with your child and remember that we are available to help in any way that we can on TEAMS.
