Welcome to Reception

 

 

 

Hello 

 

Welcome to Reception. We hope your child has enjoyed their first few days. Over the next few weeks the children will be settling in and becoming familiar with the class routines. 

 

Our topic this half term will be ‘Autumn & Ourselves’. We will be finding out more about each other and looking at the changes to the season. We are planning to focus on the following books; The Little Red Hen, The Gruffalo, Owl Babies, and Look at Me in This ABC. Please check back soon to see see our topic web and timetable.

Having Fun At School

DB Primary

See below for details of our remote learning platform- DB Primary

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.
