What is Microsoft Teams and why are we using it?

Microsoft Teams is a way for your teacher to set you work. You are able to log in to get the work and will be able to send work back to your teacher to be marked and given feedback.

We will be using Teams to support you with remote learning while you are unable to attend school for any reason. Teams will allow you to keep on track with your learning

How do I log in?

Type office 365 into ‘Google’. Type in your school email and password that you use in school. This will be your first name followed by a full stop then your surname followed by @benfield.newcastle.sch.uk

It should look like this Jack.Jones@benfield.newcastle.sch.uk

You will see all of the icons on the left-hand side for the software that

is available for you to use. Teams is near the bottom and is a purple icon.

What if I have forgotten my password

If you have forgotten your password for your school email address, please contact us at admin@benfield.newcastle.sch.uk. We will re-set it for you as soon as possible.

What work should I be doing?

You should login to Teams and click on your classes. Try to follow your normal school day as much as possible.

o   Click on the channel of the topic you are covering in class.

o   Look at the ‘posts’ to see which work your teacher has told you to start on

o   Go to the ‘files’ tab at the top

o   Click on the lessons you have been instructed to start on

o   Complete your work on a word document or the software requested by your teacher.

o   Upload your work at the end of the lesson into the ‘student work’ folder in the channel.

o   To do this click on the folder, then ‘upload’ and select your work from your device or user area.

o   Make sure you always save your work as surname, first name and the title of the task. If you are submitting an assignment, you will need to click on the ‘add my work’ button within assignment and then ‘turn in my work’.

What if I need help?

If you need help, please contact us at remotelearning@benfield.newcastle.sch.uk and we will get in touch with you. Your teacher will also post ‘online help’ sessions at specific times.
