Castlebrae Easter Revision
We will be running an in school Easter revision programme for some subjects which will likely run in the new school. The programme is currently being collated and more information will follow in due course.
Teams Pages and SharePoint
|The class Teams pages continue to be the best starting point for accessing resources. We encourage pupils to check them first when revising.|
|E-Sgoil has a range of resources. Easter Revision Support. Students can sign up from now until 31 March for the Easter revision sessions. They will need to log into Glow first. Glow passwords have previously been sent to pupils. Please note the following information for logging into Glow: Logging into office365 and Glow at the same time on the same browser is not possible without issues. If a student is logged into office365 (e.g. to access emails) they must use a different browser, or the browser’s incognito mode, to log into Glow. Then they can access the sign up links. This link leads to their learning spaces, with a range of materials and useful links. More information on their full suite of resources is available here.|
|West OS is another online school, with a wide range of useful materials. Pupils can access WestOS by logging into Clickview. In addition, between now and 8 May, they have launched West OS Live with live study support webinars running across 24 courses in the early evenings. West OS Live can be accessed in a similar way to E-Sgoil, by logging into Glow first then following the registration link.|
|Your child will have received their Scholar login details earlier this session. Scholar has a range of learning approaches, including activities, videos, interactive exercises and tests. These exercises give instant feedback on successes and next steps. Pupils can login here.|
