Crosshall Junior Academy Trust

CJS Digital Village

The Crosshall Digital Village is what we call the collection of online resources that the children use whilst at Crosshall Junior School.  It is a vehicle for our staff and student community to maintain relationships in a safe environment.  Staff can communicate with the students about their online learning and our students can support each other with learning, chat with their teachers and maintain friendships with others.

These few webpages provide an outline of work, expectations and procedures of work.

Our staff and students use Google Classroom and within that environment can use links to all the other online resources that we have bought, such as Times Table Rock Stars.  The Digital Village is only for Crosshall Junior students and staff to use but children may need initial support from parents to access.  Please see the helpful guides we have produced.

HOME LEARNING

Home Learning will be done through the Crosshall Digital Village using a range of online tools.

Home Learning is set on a Monday and due the following Monday.  The tasks will be set on Google  Classroom.

Generally these tasks will be: Century, Times Tables Rockstars, spelling and reading. Students will only bring home reading books and spelling booklets. Please encourage your child to access Google Classroom to complete the tasks every week.

ISOLATION

We will use the Crosshall Digital Village to remote teach, communicate, set work, give feedback and maintain our vital community.

If your child is isolating, please go to the My Child is Isolating page to view work set for your child.

After day one of isolation, work will be set through Google Classroom.  

REMOTE EDUCATION PROVISION 

Please find attached our Remote Education Provision document and more details below about how the school would operate if we were to switch to remote learning.

REMOTE LEARNING - DAILY SCHOOL WORK

Whilst isolating, the children’s work will largely follow the planned curriculum that would have been taught in school.

Children will need to log into their Google Classroom accounts, which we aim to have up and running from Day Two of isolation.  Day One work is set via this  website or through their Google Classroom accounts.

REMOTE LEARNING - EXPECTATIONS

Children will need to be available as much as possible, during normal school hours.  If a class is isolating together, Google Meets, Drop Ins and remote teaching will be available during the normal school day.
 
Remember you can also email the school office with any questions (office@crosshalljunioir.co.uk).   

REMOTE LEARNING - MARKING AND FEEDBACK

The children should be attaching their work for the teacher to mark in the format of a Google Document, Google Slide, PDF or a picture. If the children complete their work in their activity book, they are encouraged to take a picture of only their work and upload it to inform their teacher of their learning. The teacher then makes a comment under the student work tab if appropriate. The children are encouraged to comment and ask questions appropriately on the main stream.

GoogleMeets and Drop Ins allow the teachers to speak to the children and support their learning in real time.

REMOTE LEARNING - SUPPORT

The children are encouraged to access Google Classroom independently; however, we understand that some might struggle with technology or the activity that has been set. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact the school.
