It has been wonderful to see the children return to school, following their remote (home) learning. We have had a lovely first week back and the children have quickly settled and been happy to return. Please look back at your webpage regularly, as this will be updated with news and photographs of the children learning.
We will be continuing to use DB Primary: hogarth.essex.dbprimary.com for homework.
This will be uploaded every Monday and must be complete by Friday. If you require a paper copy of the homework, please make sure to inform the class teacher on Monday.
The children will be required to use the username and password that was issued to them as part of their home learning pack at the end of the autumn term. It is important that children keep their username and password safe and that they do not share it with friends or family.
Once your child has logged into DB Primary they will be able to see their class homepage and the homework tab that has been set for them.
As part of the DB Primary platform, your child will be able to use a forum to keep in touch with their friends and teachers. Please discuss the safety implications of this with your child:
Anything your child puts onto DB Primary can be seen by members of staff.
Sensible behaviour must be used when accessing the blogs or forums
Make sure that any pictures you upload (profile picture, or pictures in posts) are suitable for a school audience
Be kind when leaving comments on others’ work
DB Primary has an automatic profanity filter, which is designed to block any inappropriate language, which also includes ambiguous words such as ‘hate’.
All messages can be reviewed, checked and traced to the sender.
Teachers can block the message sending option if they think it necessary.
Any inappropriate content can be reported to staff at the school by clicking on the whistle icon.
We hope that having access to DB Primary will be a helpful way in which you can support your child at home and that children can begin to take responsibility for furthering their own learning independently.
We have P.E. every Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has the correct, labelled kit in school and earrings are removed.
The children will have a weekly timetable test and spelling test on a Friday.
Homework is given out on a Monday, please keep it at home.
Please read with your child as often as possible at home and write a comment in their reading diary. Daily practice with an adult can increase their enthusiasm and help them progress even further. Reading records will be checked on a Friday and will be returned to the child on Monday along with their homework.
