Remote Learning in Pods

ClassDojo is an online learning platform where we have set up your classroom community ready for remote (everyone apart from critical workers children and vulnerable children) learning from home, blended learning (School fully open but your child needs to isolate), as well as for homework. 

 

It is an excellent way to stay in touch with staff and to see pupil learning. Classes can be shared with other teachers in the school and school leaders so that learning can be shared.

 

Blended & Remote Learning: during self-isolation 

​In the event that your child has to remain at home, during periods of self-isolation (Blended learning ) , or in the event of  a local or more widespread lockdown (remote learning) , we will continue to provide home learning  for your child. This will normally be  from the Oak Academy online lessons, and will link as closely as possible to learning taking place within your child's  class.  These lessons will be posted on ClassDojo, on a class Blended Learning  Class Story.
Please continue to check ClassDojo daily,  for any new notifications and postings.
 
School Story
Class Story is where we will  share collective worship and whole school learning and events. for  ALL families from Blossom class to Hazel.
​This private feed is viewable by the parents and pupils, through both parent and pupil accounts. 
 
Class Story 
Your class teacher will post weekly planning as well as tutorials, worksheets etc to assist remote learning.
Teachers may use Class Story to:

Portfolios
Portfolios  is a digital portfolio that allows pupils to share with their teachers and family! Pupils can add to their portfolio using   Chromebooks, laptops, and iOS/Android devices, even  from home. Teachers can view and approve children's work on Portfolios using any device. Once approved, only parent accounts connected to their child can see those particular posts and both parents and teachers can leave positive feedback in the form of a like and/or comments.
