Tesla Talk Week February 5th 2021

Newsletter 5th February, 2021

The Covid safety precautions means that we cannot hold school face to face of course. We have therefore decided to carry on the teaching and learning online through Zoom, which is an advantage because it fits in well with our ManageBac platform.

Schools across the world have learnt a lot due to school closures about how to run online learning and below we have outlined the details we will be putting in place.

School hours will remain the same. That means we will be asking students to be ready for class at 8.00a.m and be prepared for learning. The detailed timetable will be shared with you through ManageBac later as we need to follow the Doet Covid Guidance. Please make sure to check your ManageBac notifications regularly to keep updated about your child’s learning schedule.

During the daily timetable of online learning, teachers will be giving a few more short breaks so children can get away from the screen, walk around use the bathroom and have a snack. Sitting down for long periods of time does not help learning.

We will be preparing PowerPoint presentations to guide students with information questions and activities.

There will be lots of teacher interaction so students get a feel of real school and will be able to talk and ask questions to their teachers.

Students are required to be in online class, and the same school rules as being polite not shouting out and listening remain in force.

The learning information for each day will be placed in ManageBac and can be accessed by parents the evening before if they wish to see it.

There will be a focus on Languages and Maths, but also a variety of activities including short videos to engage the students and keep the focus.

Finally and most importantly we ask that parents set up an area where their child/ren are comfortable and can concentrate.

We do understand this is depending on parental support at home and the first few days will be hard but students will settle into a routine when parents support the routines at home.

Please do not hesitate to contact us on 098 494 8080 if you have questions or suggestions.

Have a safe and prosperous Tet!

With best wishes to you and your family from Tesla Learning Community!

Many thanks,

After a long break, the students come back and continue completing coloring-related lessons during the Design Technology class. To help students well-prepared for freehand drawings, we are still teaching them how to use graphic tools through a simulation from sample design. This course also helps students develop artistic thinking, meticulousness and carefulness, and keyboard skills.

During this week, grade 1 to 4 students worked on their first Scratch Assessment. They need to create a short animation that requires them to select the characters and edit their costume. They also need to set the background for the story and make the characters talk and move.

This week, grade 4 students are in charge of Flag Salute and organizing some activities in the beginning of the week. Students practiced to conduct the flag salute orderly and solemn.

Highlights of Early Years

THE IMPORTANCE OF LIFE SKILLS

Teaching independent skills helps children to realize the importance and their role in relationships with people and society. For early years students, Tesla always aims to support children to practice independence skills to form good habits right from the first years of their life. Teaching children how to work independently from a young age will create a strong foundation for them to be strong in the future.
