Dear Fair Oak Family,
Happy Monday! We hope you had a lovely weekend and were able to enjoy the sunshine in one way or another.
Just a reminder to follow us on Twitter – we are always adding pictures and information detailing what is going on in school and we, as always, love to see your pictures of home learning. Don’t forget to look out for our Fri-yay challenge each week too!
We just wanted to remind parents of pupils who have instrumental /vocal lessons with Hampshire Music Service about the following: – it would be wonderful if more parents would sign up and give it a try with the children.
🎶 HMS Virtual Learning Zone 🎶
The HMS Virtual Learning Zone is open for the summer term. Please go to www.hants.gov.uk/hms to log a parent email address and you will be contacted directly.
By logging on to the Learning Zone, you will be able to:
*have email conversations with your child's music teacher
*get advice and information on how to help them progress with their instrumental/vocal skills.
*access an extensive resources section which includes video demos by HMS staff and lots of music, technical exercises, worksheets, ensemble activities etc.
*the opportunity to upload audio or video recordings of your son/daughter playing, for a more detailed response from their teacher.
* Teachers will respond at least once a week during term-time, and you will have open access to all the online resources. This provision is available for HMS students, so please do not share the password with students who will not be registered to communicate with an HMS teacher. To sign in please visit....
- www.hants.gov.uk/hms and click on ‘Sign in to HMS' located in the pink bar. Then click on the blue padlock 'Sign in to Student area'.
- Follow the instructions on the 'Student secure area' page and click on the pink 'Secure area' button to continue.
- Enter the username and password which you will find in your son/daughter's practice diary, and click 'ok' (username: hmsstudent, password: learningzone).
Here you will find links to the various sections contained within the Learning Zone, along with instructions on how to contact your teacher and upload recordings of your children playing.
If you experience technical issues with the website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Some HMS teachers will be able to offer real-time online lessons, via Google Meet. More details about this will be available soon.
We hope you enjoy the resources and opportunities to continue engaging with our teachers and we look forward to hearing from you.
Head of Hampshire Music Service
