We have recently introduced Microsoft TEAMS to use both at home and at school. There are now many resources for your children to access on their own class page. They can also upload work for their friends and teachers to see.
Here are some guides to help you use TEAMS.
Please let us know if you would like more help with TEAMS.

We are very excited to tell you that the Dalton bears have arrived at school and are ready to go to their new homes. We hope that these bears will provide comfort and companionship to our children during this difficult time, until we can all be reunited together at school. Our aim is for the children to complete their work with their new companion as well as spending time with their bear doing the things they enjoy. We kindly ask that you take photographs of your child with their bear, completing any work set or playing games or even taking them out for a walk. We would love to add these photographs to our school website so our children and their families can see what their friends are up to. Our aim is to support the children in feeling connected to their Dalton family until we are all back in school together. Your child's teachers will also be taking a bear home and taking photographs of our time with them for your child to see.
If your child is currently in school, their bear will be coming home with them on Friday.
If your child is currently at home, the bears will be waiting in the office for you to collect at your earliest convenience. If you are unable to collect your child's bear, please email or call school and we will arrange for your child's bear to be dropped off at your homes.
Tuesday 2nd February
Over the last four weeks we have been trying hard to make sure the children in school are able to carry on with their classes with some normality. All the work we have planned with the children in school has been circulated to our parents via email, through TEAMS and through available workpacks. Our ZOOM Dance and Gymnastics lessons have been accessed by the children at home so it has felt like we are all together.
We introduced TEAMS three weeks ago and have been using this platform to communicate with the children both at home and at school. We have used the meeting rooms in different wys, individaully, in samll groups and as whole classes. We are planning to use this facility more in the near future.

In class two the children have been learning about different types of rocks in their connected curriculum theme 'Rock and Roll'. They enjoyed making chocolate rocks which really helped them to understand about the formation of rocks. Please look at their photographs on the class page. https://daltonstmichael.sites.schooljotter2.com/curriculum/class-two-1
