Distance Learning at Home
Year 3-6 students can loan a school device if they don't currently have access to a device. Please fill in this form by Sunday 22nd August at 6pm. We will be doing an onsite pick up of devices on Monday 23rd August between 11am-12noon. You must only come up to collect a device if you have requested one AND follow the very strict PICK UP PROTOCOLS that will be sent to you.

What is our Sunnyhills Distance Learning at Home?
Distance Learning occurs when the learner and instructor, or source of information, are separated by time and distance and therefore cannot meet in a traditional classroom setting.
Here are some practical things you can do to help your child with their learning:
Set up a learning space so that your child can focus on their learning. Limit distractions by turning off the television.
Consider the technology you will need. We stress that only a portion of learning should be done digitally. This is an opportunity to include practical learning activities.
Create structure: This is not an extended holiday period, but school from home. Schools operate on timetables and routines and it may be helpful for you to follow the suggested plan for the day that is included below or set up a timetable that works for you and your child.
Know what your child should know: Refer to the learning links on the school website and the tasks on the team sites.
Be around, but don't do their work for them. Tasks may contain elements of challenge. You might offer suggestions, but try to let them do things themselves. Encourage them to self regulate....take control of their own learning without relying on you.
