Class DOJO

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 gained.

Parents can 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.

 

Home Learning Links

Please look at the curriculum yearly overviews and reading books your child will study in the next half term. 

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.

Our younger children use Numbots to help with the understanding, recall and fluency in mental addition and subtraction, so that they move from counting to calculating.

Oxford Owl is a website where you will find educational resources and free eBooks to support your child’s reading.

Remote Learning

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.
