Home Learning is set through our chosen learning platform called ClassDojo. Children can log into ClassDojo and access their Home Learning by using the QR code or link sent home to parents. Here, they can either complete their tasks via ClassDojo, submitting it to their class teacher once completed or the task can be downloaded, printed, completed and then sent back to ClassDojo via a photograph or the paper copy can be returned to the class teacher.
The amount of home learning to be completed is as follows:
Children have allocated times to visit the library to borrow 2 reading books each week. If children require additional learning materials, they can access the eLibrary with their username and password, where they can borrow from a brilliant selection of age appropriate texts for all year groups. It also has a selection of audio books. To access the Westfields Junior School eLibrary, either download the ePlatform app (by Wheelers) or go to https://westfieldsjun-hantssls.wheelers.co/ search for Westfields Junior School and use the log in and password provided by the school. The app can be adapted to suit specific requirements such as dyslexia or visual impairment. For more information, please speak with your class teacher or Mrs Colyer.
The Day Explorer
In addition to the eLibrary, children can also access the Day Explorer which is an online current affairs site for children provided by Hants SLS. It explains the news in a way that children can understand and broaden their knowledge. It includes articles, cartoons, points for discussion and looks at all aspects of the curriculum in relation to the news.
Each Tuesday, children will have a spelling lesson where they will learn a specific rule or pattern and then, using the spelling booklet they have been given, they will then need to practise their spellings using the ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ method. Children will then be tested on the following Monday.
This year, due to the period of time missed from school, the spelling books have been amended and are attached below:
