The children in Year 2 are now confident using J2 Launch in school and have shared with their families at home. Homework is now on J2 Launch for Year 2 children. This familiarity with the learning platform supports children and their families when there is a need to move to remote learning. Remote learning may become necessary due to covid or other circumstances where children are unable to access school. J2 Launch is a strong learning platform for young children, highly recommended by the Borough.
The children in Year 1 were introduced to J2 Launch in September.
Families and children can access J2 Launch via their logins to support and practise their learning. However, as the children have only recently become familiar with the learning platform, remote learning is mainly via emails.
Nursery & Reception - Tapestry
Nursery & Reception will continue to use Tapestry to liaise with families to support remote learning as well as emails. Any photos or ‘work” can either be uploaded on Tapestry or emailed using class emails.
Where families do not have access to the internet or laptops/ipads, etc., we will arrange for a paper copy to either be delivered or liaise with family re collection.
Class emails are also available for communication and support. During periods of lockdown, teachers/members of staff have contacted families on a weekly basis to check if they have needed any support generally and/or with remote learning.
