Whilst the academy is closed, teachers at Admirals Academy remain committed to providing your child with continued learning opportunities. The primary way that we will do this is through Google Classroom (www.classroom.google.com). Your child has been provided with a login for this platform in their red books. If you are unable to access this resource, please contact the academy office and we will look to get this sorted as quickly as possible. A tutorial video on how to use Google Classroom is available here
Please see our online learning information below. This includes a timetable for live lessons and instructions on how to use Google Classrooms.

PE Lessons with Joe Wicks
Joe Wicks the body coach is doing a 30 minute session every morning at 9am. It is a fantastic way to get active, stimulate the mind and burn energy. It is a brilliant way to prepare for the day’s learning. We would recommend that all children take part in this every day. This is especially important during the lockdown period.
TT Rockstars is a fun way of practising times tables. Your child will be able to log in with their usual username and then use the password ‘cat.’ They will be able to play timestable games, play multiplayer games against children across the world and even challenge their teacher!
