Supporting learning at home and Class Dojo

The learning the children are expected to complete at home, has a clear focus on key skills that will not only enable them to make the expected academic progress but also foster those vital skills that they will need beyond their time at school. We therefore expect them to practise their times tables, learn new spellings and read on a weekly basis. A note stating the details for this is sent home on a Monday via the children’s school communication book and the class teacher can be contacted via email or Class Dojo in the event of this being lost and another copy being needed.

Class Dojo is an online resource where parents can connect to the day to day learning. It is a secure environment where we can share photos and videos of what we are doing in school. It is also a rewards system for the children with dojo points being given by teachers and other members of staff. It is used as a way of getting messages from teachers to parents and vice versa.

Mathletics is an online teaching and learning resource. The children can access activities that they choose to support their learning. It is a fun environment which is used in class and as homework. Children can earn certificates as they learn and gain items for their Avatar.

Online Safety

All children need to learn how to keep themselves safe online. Here are some things you can do:
CEOPS is the best place to go if you wish to report something inappropriate on the internet.
ThinkUKnow is where you can play interactive games and learn more about being safe online.
Kidsmart has lots of information about how you can keep yourself safe online.
