We use ‘Class Dojo’ in all classes to positively recognise children’s achievements.
Class Dojo is an online system, which gives parents information to be able to celebrate and reflect on the school day with their child. We use Class Dojo to reward children’s positive attitudes to learning and as a way of communicating with parents and sharing work in class. Each child has a ‘monster avatar’ that earns dojo points for positive learning behaviours and outstanding work.
From a parent account, parents can access lots of useful information about their child’s day at school including ‘class stories’ and the positive Dojo Points that they have earnt.
Parents also take advantage of the Class Dojo Messaging service. Parents can message their child’s teacher, within school hours. Teachers will endeavour to reply as quickly as possible but please bear in mind that school life can be incredibly busy and whilst every effort will be made to respond, there may be a slight delay on occasion. Additionally, please do not expect a same day reply to any messages sent after 5pm.
We hope that parents will find Class Dojo to be a convenient and exciting way to find out how their child is getting on at school.
Home Learning Links
Our Key Stage 2 children (Year 3 – 6) use an online platform called Atom Learning as part of their home learning. It provides helpsheets and videos to support learning and continually adapts the difficulty of the questions to fit your child’s learning style and optimal pace. This keeps them challenged and stretched, without demotivating them.
We use Times Tables Rock Stars, a fun and engaging way for our pupils to practice their times tables. All children are given an individual log in which they can use in school or at home.
Oxford Owl is a website where you will find educational resources and free eBooks to support your child’s reading.
This explains our plans for remote learning for children who have to self-isolate, or where local or national restrictions mean that children need to stay at home.
