Social Story – A Teams Call With Teacher

When books are being collected from the school at the prescribed times for each class level during the week beginning Jan 11th, each pupil will receive a username and password which will allow them access to Microsoft Office365 – this online resource will allow each child access a range of Microsoft features such as Word, PowerPoint, Outlook (email) and Microsoft Teams. 

The following video shows how to join a Microsoft Teams meeting:

We will be discussing:

  1. Show & Tell [if you have a piece of art/poem/project you would like to talk about- we would love to see it]
  2. Virtual School Tour- pick your favourite and talk about it [see links above]
  3. Memories of 5th Class
  4. Quiz
  5. Any other questions or concerns

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy & enjoyable summer.
