Hundreds of Lessons Taught Remotely
Every day MCS pupils are being taught the same subjects and the same topics as if they were following the curriculum in the school classroom.
Pupils register each morning through the Pupil Portal and receive and submit work for their lessons. Teachers are providing online learning for all academic subjects using a variety of techniques. In addition, many co-curricular activities are continuing through online technology.
The MCS Sports department have tweeted an inspiring set of exercise ideas.
Try to get some exercise and outdoor activity each day. Remember, however, to always follow government guidance on social distancing.
Keep up to date with your work
Remember to register via the Pupil Portal each morning before you start work. You should be spending enough time each day to follow the lessons and complete the work set. If you are having difficulties with the work, contact your teacher directly through e-mail. Your tutor will also be able to provide advice on how to work effectively at home.
Available through the Pupil Portal
You can find a schedule for all online lessons on the Pupil Portal here. This is updated daily, with any changes highlighted in yellow.
Online lessons are delivered through Microsoft Teams.
