What is the ICS Virtual School Experience like in Primary?

Our Primary students are engaged each day through learning activities set by their class Teacher and posted on our online learning platform. They communicate through online lessons, Microsoft Teams and other apps such as Showbie and Padlet. Students also meet in small groups with their Teacher.

Learning activities for Primary include:

  • Unit of Inquiry
  • Maths
  • English (Reading, Writing, Grammar)
  • Specialist lessons (Music, Languages, PE) Spanish and Drama
  • PSPE Lessons from Ms Hayley

Teachers post videos each day to explain the different tasks. Students watch these videos and then complete any relevant activities set by the Teacher. Students then post their work each day on Seesaw for Teacher approval and feedback. Student attendance is taken daily.

What Parents have said about our Virtual School Experience:

The school response to this has been amazing. My children have been working on their regular day routine since 8:45. Teachers have prepared mini videos with instructions, audio files, scans and google forms, so that children work on each subject as if they were in school. Some teachers even required kids to write “I’m in class” on the message board to make sure they were there and working.
Primary teachers have done an amazing work as well. They are all responding to kids work and their questions under the minute. I’m also impressed with how well organized and on top of things the teachers are. My kids have also been working all day and know exactly what they have to do. Great job!!
