Zoom reminders

Can you remember how to unmute yourself to answer my questions? (hold down the space bar until you have finished speaking)

Can you remember how to show me your thumbs up? (click the reactions face and select thumbs up emoji)

Can you remember how to send me a question? (click the speech bubble and type your question in the chat)

REMEMBER – there is an expectation that learning behaviours during a zoom session should be the same as if the children are in a classroom lesson at school.


Thank you for your on going support.
