During this lockdown all of our remote learning will be delivered through ClassDojo (and Tapestry for YR). Teachers will set activities in line with our remote learning policy . We are awaiting updated guidance from the government on remote learning and will be reviewing our provision accordingly.

 

On ClassDojo, individual lessons will appear as 'activities' on the child's account. Completed work can be uploaded to the portfolio or returned as a response in the 'activity'. From 11.1.21 we will be posting downloadable links to all supporting documents so that you have an option to print resources too. Teachers will also post videos and messages on the 'Class Story' to keep in touch. 

 

On Tapestry, daily learning will be set through an observation your child is tagged in. This will be uploaded with links, videos or pictures. Please post an observation back with photos and videos of your child completing the home learning and any other lovely things you may get up to in the day. We look forward to seeing what you have been up doing. 

 

There is an expectation that all children attempt the remote learning we have set. Please get in touch with school if you have any problems, including issues with IT.

 

We will be posting some help videos over the next few days to help iron out any teething issues. There are also lots of tutorials on the ClassDojo youtube channel as well as on their help pages. For Tapestry there are lots of tutorials on how to use it and upload an observation for AndroidiOS and desktop web browser.
 

We know how hard remote learning can be and will be doing all we can to support you and your children
