We are using the Class Dojo platform to support home-school communication. It is a tool which allows teachers, children, and families to share learning through photos, videos, and messages. All children and parents have their own login details.
Homework is set and sent home each Monday. This will also be posted on ClassDojo.
Children will be expected to read for 20 minutes each day Monday to Friday.
Y1-6 will receive some spellings to learn as well as some maths facts to practice.
Spelling tests and recall of facts tests will take place on the following Tuesday, giving children enough time to practice. We would appreciate it if families could support their children with the activities sent home.
Below you can find our plan for remote learning during a partial or full school closure.
If a singular child from a class is absent due to shielding or isolation due to a family member displaying symptoms or testing positive, we can still support learning by sending paper work packs home in the short term. We would not be using the above systems as our class teachers will need to focus on the rest of their class still in school.
You can still use the links below to support learning at home.
