This page contains lots of the resources and information that school shared during the first lockdown period of 2020.
If your children are isolating, please access Tapestry or ClassDojo for their learning.
How To Use ClassDojo
Dear Parents and Carers,
As a school, and like thousands of other schools up and down the country, we have chosen to use a learning platform (an App) called ClassDojo. Most of our children know about it since many classes use it to keep points for individual children.
The class teachers will upload activities, challenges and learning tasks for the children to do independently or with adult support. Staff will also post links and information about interesting websites you might like to use and so on.
It’s also the perfect way for staff to stay in touch. We care about you and your children and want you to be able to keep in contact with us regularly.
All of the children in school have been registered on ClassDojo. You can download ClassDojo as an App onto your mobile phone, tablet or you can visit the website on a laptop. School will provide you with a link and a code that you will need when you register.
Use the code in that text to follow these instructions, after you’ve downloaded the ClassDojo App from the App store (for free).
To Create a Parent Account with a Parent Code:
Go to home.classdojo.com
Select “Parent” from the centre of the screen
Enter your parent code and select “Check code” and Click on "I'm ___'s Parent" OR select “Sign up,” enter your first and last name, email address, and create a password before clicking "Sign Up" again.
The App itself works very much like Facebook. You can read messages from your child’s teacher, and they will read what you or your child upload or type. It’s best to have a play around and work out how it works – no doubt your child can give you a crash course in 5 minutes.
The Class Story is where the teachers will share information and messages from school. The Portfolio is where your child can share their learning. Messages are an easy way for you to send a short message to your child’s teacher.
If you have a problem, please contact the school office and someone will be back in touch with more information.
Thank you for your continued support
We’ve teamed up with the Sheffield Children's University to bring theatre into your home.
Writer Chris Bush has written a story, but she’s having trouble finishing it, she needs your help! Not only do you have to finish the script, but you need to become the director, designer and the star of the show as you create your own Shadowbox Puppet Theatre.
We’ve got six activities, filled with video workshops and guidance on storytelling techniques to bring your story to life.
1. Work through each activity in order. You may need some craft materials.
2. There’s numerous resources to help you create your production, including videos and music to accompany the show.
3. Remember to write your own ending to the script, be creative and put on a fantastic show!
