We are excited to announce that from this week, we will be using ‘Microsoft Teams’ to help stay in touch during these challenging times. Your teacher will call you to help you to get started.
In order to access Microsoft Teams, type the address www.office.com (or use the link below) and use the email address and password that you have been given over the phone. (If you have not been given this, please email your class teacher.)
When you sign in for the first time, you will be asked to change your password. Make this unique and something that you will be able to remember. (Note: Always keep your passwords secret)
Once you have signed in, you will see a welcome sign with a range of Microsoft applications. You will be able to send an email to your class teacher (through Outlook) using one of the class email addresses below. The settings on your account means that you can only send emails to your teachers and only receive emails from your teachers.
As a pupil, you will also be able to access a wide range of on-line applications, such as Word, Excel and Powerpoint. These may help you to complete future work.
You will also be able to see a symbol that says ‘Teams’. This is the application that we can use to help to keep in touch. You can log in and post messages to the groups / channels / teams that you have been assigned to.
A teacher from the Year 6 team will be available between 10-12 pm each day, starting from Wednesday 13th May.
We hope to ‘see’ you on there soon 🙂
