What is Microsoft Teams?
From Monday 1st June we will be launching our Remote Learning System via Microsoft Teams. Teams is a hub for learning that will give pupils access to all of their lessons and teachers. It can be used to see what work has been set for them, to ask questions to their teachers and to receive marked work back.
Why Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams is available in many different ways, it can be downloaded on a PC, accessed through directly the website or via the Android or Apple app. This gives as much flexibility as possible, allowing pupils without a computer to still access their work through a tablet or phone.
Logging into TEAMS
Please note your username is your school email address . Its your school username with smithillsschool.net
Your password is your normal school password.
How will it work?
Pupils will need to log into the TEAMS website/app using their normal school email/password. They can also access all of the Microsoft 365 suite using these details, which allows them to download software like Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Excel (this might be helpful to complete some of the work).
We have created a walkthrough video of how to login/access their work;
This has been created using the TEAMS app on an Apple device, although the appearance may be slightly different on other systems the steps are still the same.
What are our expectations?
Our expectations are that pupils complete all the work set and you remain in contact with their
teachers so they can support them, provide feedback and give further instructions.
