As I am sure you are aware there have been cases of Covid-19 at some schools across Leicester and Leicestershire which have resulted in ‘bubbles’ having to be educated at home. If this happens at St Barnabas, we want to be prepared and set up for children to be learning from home.
Therefore, we are excited to tell you about the new learning platforms that we have purchased and will be using as a school. The purpose of these learning platforms are for your child to be using them:
- to complete their homework
- in case their bubble closes for 2 weeks
- in case they are having to self-isolate for 2 weeks
- in case we experience whole school closure
The learning platforms that your child will be using and will have access to are the following:
Times Table Rock Stars:
Google Classroom (Click on image):
All of these learning platforms work on mobile phones, tablets, IPADS, laptops and computers. Times Table Rockstars, NumBots and Google Classroom can also be downloaded from the Google Play Store as an App to have on your phone.
