I hope that you and your families continue to stay well in these very challenging times.
As you are all aware, learning and teaching will now take place on digital platforms from Monday 11th January until at least February. We will continue to update you with the latest information as and when it arrives.
In terms of our digital offering, we have a wide variety of activities and opportunities for all of our pupils to access. Firstly, I would ask you to access class DOJO where you will be able to register your child for the day and will be directed to OneNote, where all of your child’s learning activities will be found. In order to assist you and your child with access, Ms Allington has compiled a very useful instructional video about gaining access to the Virtual Classroom and One Note. This can be found on Class DOJO.
What you can expect
Please log in every morning by 9.15am through Class DOJO where you will be registered and directed to One Note through Glow. The class teacher will upload a welcome message with a summary of the day’s learning and children will be asked to engage with this learning and return completed tasks. Class teachers have worked extremely hard to create a wide variety of learning opportunities for your child to engage with. Children will receive ‘stars’ as a reward for their registration and the return of completed work. There will be a ‘Star of the Week’ in each class and a prize for a pupil in each class with the most stars at the end of the digital learning period.
Teachers will direct children to a ‘room’ in the virtual classroom where a variety of activities can be found. The appropriate colour of room will be shared with you and your child on DOJO and through Glow. The school have a number of subscription programmes such as Accelerated Reading and MYON that allow children to access a number of books and their corresponding assessments.
We have also placed instructions on how to access digital learning through Xbox and Play station on class Dojo, twitter, HT Blog and Glow should families not have access to laptops and/ or tablets.
Please be rest assured that class teacher will be able to support your child at all times and should technical issues or other barriers to learning arise, please make the class teacher aware and the Senior Management Team will be on hand to assist.
