Online Learning Platform
www.classdojo.com or Download the ClassDojo App
There are Four main features of the platform:
Class Story – This will contain helpful learning links to online activities along with activities pupils may wish to complete at home. There is no requirement for these activities to be submitted. Staff will update the class story regularly. Each year group in Wrens has their own Class Story.
School Story- The school story sends out information across the whole school and is shown on your feed. our newsletter, Pitton News, as well as our useful information, is sent through this and is sent to all families in the school.
Portfolio – This is a section where activities requiring ‘submission’ will be placed. Pupils will complete the activities and submit them online, where their class teacher will be able to access them, comment and/or award Dojo points. Staff will update portfolio activities regularly. The portfolio is only used during Remote learning in Wrens.
Messenger - This is a useful message service built into Class Dojo. Mrs Davis and Miss Pearce check this regularly and will send out Targets, IEPs as well as send messages when needed. This is a great way to let the class teachers know if your child has been feeling unwell or not slept well (for example) if you are unable to pass this information across in the morning.
