If pupils are unable to attend school for any reason, we would like to remind you that they are still able to access work using a variety of online platforms for which they have been issued passwords. See below...…..
We ask for ALL pupils to read out loud to an adult daily, with an opportunity to discuss what has been read.
Daily guidance for use of online platforms / websites: We would ask for pupils to complete a minimum of 30 minutes daily on each of the personalised websites listed below. For younger pupils, this could be split over two sessions.
Parents can contact class teachers directly using the Class Dojo app (which teachers invite all parents to join at the beginning of the academic year).
PERSONALISED ONLINE LEARNING
Every pupil in our school has been provided with a username and password for a personal account to use RM Easimaths online. This is a very powerful, personalised learning tool that will use continued assessment to provide individual, level-specific challenges appropriate for the pupil. This can be completed daily with no maximum time assigned.
* Important Note: Unfortunately, if you do not already have the app installed on an iPad then there is no way to use this on an iPad. It can be used on a windows machine with Flash enabled, or on an Android tablet using the Puffin Academy app. We appreciate that this is not ideal, but would encourage you to do your best to find a way to get your child regular access if at all possible as this is a really powerful learning tool.
Selected pupils have access to Lexia - an online literacy platform which is designed to improve literacy skills and reading comprehension. If your child is eligible to access their service then they should aim to complete the challenges daily. Usernames and passwords have also been sent home with children where appropriate.
TimesTable Rockstars (TTR)
Many of our pupils use the online timestables platform to provide a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice. It is most beneficial for all pupils to use the platform as much as possible. Usernames and passwords have been issued for home use.
Online Learning Portal - Hwb
All pupils have access to the online learning portal for Wales - Hwb. We have sent home usernames and passwords so pupils and families can access the range of learning tools and resources as and when required.
Each class have made their own arrangements which include the use of Hwb classes, J2E and Microsoft Teams. Please check specific details with the class teacher if you are unsure.
