Springfield Primary Academy uses Class Dojo as a remote learning platform. This gives us the ability to post work, for children to return work and for staff to give feedback. It also gives us the ability to engage parents in order to support them in delivering home learning.

If you are having difficulties accessing Class Dojo, please do not hesitate to contact the school, or click on the link below.

If a class or year group bubble has to self-isolate, the following protocols will be followed.

Routines

A timetable for the week will be posted on Class Dojo. The timetable, as much as possible, will reflect a normal school day.

Curriculum

Our online learning offer will utilise a number of online resources, including Oak National Academy, White Rose Maths, Bug Club, BBC Bitesize and online maths and phonics games and activities. By using Oak National Academy and White Rose Maths resources, our aim is to give children access to quality teaching. Other tasks can also be uploaded, linked to our ongoing topics.

Our aim is to provide a broad and balanced curriculum across the week that is well-sequenced, focuses on the essentials and is built on prior learning in the classroom.

Specific work will be set for children with SEND.

Communication and Feedback

Teachers will maintain contact on a daily basis with all children, giving feedback to work posted back to them, giving either advice on how to improve a piece of work, outline errors, encourage children to think about how they have completed a task, and to give praise.

If an individual child within a class is having to self-isolate, the following protocols will be followed.

On day one, there will be an expectation for the child to continue homework activities, taken from their homework menu, and to access Bug Club and online maths activities.

From day two onwards, work will be posted on a daily basis, based on the work that has been done in class the previous day. This may include electronic worksheets, links to Oak National Academy and White Rose Maths.

Teachers will maintain contact on a daily basis with that child. However, this is on the understanding that the teacher will have a full teaching commitment, so will not be able to communicate with the child throughout the day. Teachers will give feedback to work posted back to them, giving either advice on how to improve a piece of work, outline errors, encourage children to think about how they have completed a task, and to give praise.
