Here you can find help and support with home learning. At Barrow Hill Primary Academy we teach our children to use digital devices to support and show their learning in school. From a young age, children become skilled in using a range of apps, accessing a variety of websites and applying their literacy skills to digital platforms. We also teach children about how to stay safe on the Internet and remind them about kind words and kind behaviour.
This year, we have all started to use the Class Dojo platform to share work, reward success and celebrate achievements. It is also a fantastic resource for communicating with parents and parents communicating with teachers. Class Dojo can be accessed on tablets, phones, laptops or PCs. It is easy to set up and easy to use. Below is a how to guide to get you started.
