Learning at home
Update January 2021
Please see the letter sent to families by the headteacher on 1 January about learning from home.
You can read the letter in full here.
The government has announced that primary schools in Tier 4 areas, where coronavirus rates are particularly high, will remain closed until at least Monday, 18 January. As we are in one of these areas our school buildings will remain closed. However, school learning will take place for all children and remote learning will start from Tuesday 5th January 2021.
Remote learning expectations
Every day at 9am, all children from Reception to Year 6 will be expected to log onto a Zoom call for registration. Any children who do not log on will be contacted by the school. During this Zoom meeting, teachers will go through the learning that will be set for that day. Learning will cover all areas of the curriculum just like a normal school day and will be differentiated and set accordingly on DB Primary. Children will then have the rest of the morning to complete and upload their work back onto DB Primary.
DB Primary is one of the UK's leading online learning platforms. Its is easy for children to use and for parents to help with learning at home. All tasks can be set and completed within DB Primary. Children are able to access a variety of learning activities that are directly linked to the National Curriculum.
DB Primary is to be used by all children from Reception to Year 6. Nursery children will have their learning work set separately. See below.
All children have been given a login. Once your child logs in, they will be able to see
work that has been added for them to complete.
In addition to this, your child can also access a range of self-learning activities.
you have any queries relating to DB Primary, including how to get your
login details, please email us with your child's name, year group and
the school they go to firstname.lastname@example.org If you click on the yellow
whistle on the top left corner of the DB Primary screen, you can send a
message to the class teacher.
