We are trialling a new parent/school app. The app is initially being used by year 2 and 3 teachers. The app will allow parents or other family members or friends to access information about school, letters, newsletters, school diary and updates about what is going in within the classroom. The app can also be used to reply to letters electronically (trip reply slips for example). The app can also be used to send notifications to parents when there are changes to the day (e.g. clubs being cancelled or a change to the dinner menu).
Once the app is installed click yes to allow notifications – this will allow you to receive updates from school. Within the app you can also go into the settings page and choose which categories (year groups) you would like to get notifications.
You can download the app for free on either the Apple or Android store.
This is a trial and we will rely on feedback from parents to decide about how an app could be used in the future.
Please contact year 2 or 3 teachers or myself with any questions.
We are testing a smart phone app for parents/family members to use to receive communication from school (letters, news updates etc). In the first instance this is open to year 2 and 3 parents whilst we explore the app and how it could be used.
Please complete the form below to take part in the trial.
Five of the Digital Leaders attended a conference about online safety recently at Bradford Football Club. During they day the listened to a range of guest speakers and explored new software at the exhibits around the room. They have used what they learnt to prepare a presentation about online safety which will be given to the whole school and parents at online safety parent sessions.
Children in Year 5 and 6 have been exploring how to use computer based programs to control physical objects. It is still early days but at the moment children have started to look at how motors and LEDs can be managed using computer program.
The children in Key Stage One had a very exciting start to their day today…they found out that they would be spending the whole morning working in the dark! The lights were turned off and the windows blacked out. The classrooms were then decorated in a wonderful array of colourful lights. “I had to do my work with a torch!” The adults and children carried on their morning as normal with the added excitement of warm hot chocolate and marshmallows outside. Inside they learned about shadows and tried to make there own lights using the electric circuits in the science area.
