Home Learning

In line with Government guidance St John's has contingency plans for blended and remote learning, should our pupils need to access this due to having to self-isolate.

 

We aim to ensure that there is alignment as far as possible between face-to-face and remote education, so that should pupils need to self-isolate, they can transition smoothly back into the classroom having followed the same curriculum sequence and content as their in-school peers.

Instructions for home learning can be found below when necessary, along with useful links. Individual class pages will contain specific information for you and your child. 

Our online learning platforms

EARLY YEARS

Tapestry is an easy-to-use and secure online learning journal helping staff and families celebrate their children's learning and development. Tapestry builds a very special record of a child's experiences, development and learning journey through their early years and primary education.

KEY STAGE 1

J2E is an online, fun, creative environment. Text, graphics, animations, sounds, videos, and embedded objects can be combined on a single web page, with unlimited storage for files and the ability to blog at the click of a button.Teachers will use this to share resources and weblinks with your children to help support their learning. It has lots of tools that children can use to online and an upload/storage area for photographs of offline creations.

KEY STAGE 2

Google Classroom is to streamline the process of sharing files between teachers and students. Google classroom works on any device so pupils can access the online learning platforms anywhere. Teachers can upload instructions, links and activities to one place and both pupils and families can see exactly what the class topic/homework is. There is always choice to complete tasks on either paper or a device.
