Mrs Janes, our English lead, has joined our school to a new website: 'Letter-Join' (http://www.letterjoin.co.uk). This is a handwriting scheme that can be used at home and in school.
At Eastchurch, we are proud of our pupil’s handwriting and take particular care in our cursive handwriting style. Handwriting is a basic skill that influences the quality and speed of work throughout the curriculum. Helping to make handwriting an automatic process ensures that it doesn’t interfere with creative and mental thinking.
From Monday, teachers will be setting handwriting tasks for your child to complete using the Letter-join site. Details on how to login are in a PDF below and are also on School Story section of Class Dojo.
Children are encouraged to practise their handwriting at home by using the Pupil log-in for Letter-join. Children can also watch the word and letter animations and practice and explore other handwriting resources on Letter-join.
Happy New Year and welcome back to Eastchurch Primary School. For the next few weeks, in line with government direction, we will be asking your children to work from home, doing as much as you can from the work that is set. This is going to be a big change from the way we normally do things, and it is going to require resilience from all of our pupils to learn to work in a different way over the next month. Go here for some videos that can give you some guidance on helping your child be resilient.
In order to get to your child's work, click on the year group they are in below. This will take you to the blog for the class. You will simply then need to find the right day on the blog and then complete the activities set for that day. The teachers will have provided as much information as they can to help you, and will be available during the day to help you if you need any additional help or guidance.
When you've completed each activity, upload a picture of the work to your Class Dojo page for your teacher. You can join Eastchurch's Class Dojo by clicking here. You'll then be able to upload pictures of any work you do via the app, which can be downloaded to phones, iPads and other devices here.
The two guides below may be useful to you if you haven't used Class Dojo before. We would definitely recommend reading through the Portfolio Guide, which will teach you how to upload your child's work so that the teacher can effectively mark it.
