We have been having some worries communicated to us by families struggling to use Twitter to communicate with the teachers.
First and foremost we should underline that the Twitter accounts the Teachers are using during COVID 19 lockdown exist primarily so that the teachers can put their own messages and videos out to their classes and so there is an easy way for the children to see their faces or hear what is going on. Their main aim is to be a source of reassurance for your child.
We in no way are suggesting parents have to join Twitter to communicate and the primary conduit for all important conversations and queries should still be the school admin email inbox firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are keen to share what you are up to at home or ask a less important question, or pass on a child’s message then joining Twitter can be fun if you wish to. We do also note that Twitter is for people 13 and over so accounts should be fully supervised by you rather than a child.
With that in mind here are some videos from Mr Bennett to guide you through Twitter basics if you do wish to join in.
