Shaping Learning For Life

Stockbridge - Primary and Pre-school

Home learning guidance

We were well prepared for lockdown learning as we were already using Google Classroom but we’ve added to our repertoire throughout COVID times and as we move forwards too.

We use many online programmes in our day to day learning which can be easily accessed from home; staff can log into them, leaders can log into all classes and, most importantly, children can log in from home.

  • Google classroom
  • TT Rock Stars
  • Class dojo
  • Libresoft

As we use more, we’ll add them to the list above.

Google Classroom

Each child has their own log on and unique password to Google Classroom.  Google classroom is a virtual classroom where teachers and children can post their work in the form of documents, pictures, videos and presentations.

Teachers have created ‘classrooms’ on there and will post work for children.  You DON’T need a computer with Word on (or any other programmes for that matter) as you can work within Google classroom which has an inbuilt version of Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

Class dojo

Many of you will be familiar already with Class dojo as a means of seeing your child’s learning and success in school on a day by day basis.  Children use dojo in 3 ways:

  1. to earn ‘dojo’ points which reward general classroom behaviours and learning behaviours
  2. to post pictures of their learning to share with you with short comments from them or their teachers which you as parents can reply to.
  3. send messages to teachers (this shouldn’t replace email which is the main and preferred source of contact and one which teachers check daily – they do not check dojo messenger daily)
