In West Base and West 2 we use several digital resources that pupils can now use at home to support their learning.
Pupils from year 2 in IPACA have access to Accelarated Reader. Accelerated Reader is an online reading program. Students select and read books of their choice and take multiple choice tests when they finish reading.
From Easter pupils can access AR at home and take reading quizzes. We would encorage students to take quizzes on their own.
AR can be found at: https://ukhosted40.renlearn.co.uk/2236801/
A great feature AR offers is a parent email service. Parents, carers or family members can sign up for email alerts. Every time your child takes a quiz in school or at home you will recieve an email itelling you what book your child has read and what percentage they got correct.
To access AR parent emails follow this link. Your children will be coming home with their log in cards over easter. You will need their username and password to activate parent emails (most children already know this)
We have set all pupils a challenge, to read 2 books with a test score of 85% and over during the Easter holidays.
We have seen some absolutely fantastic Mathletics work over the last term in both West Base and West 2. Pupils are still enjoying collecting their many certificates and we see Gold badges given out in celebration assembly most weeks - fantastic work.
All pupils have a mathletics log in (again this will be coming home over easter if you child doesn't know theirs). We have seen some brilliant progress from those pupils who consistantly 'play' mathletics at home every week.
Mathletics is available as an app on any tablet or through the website: http://www.mathletics.co.uk
Mathletics also offer a parents email. You wil receive a weekly email informing you of your childs progress in mathletics. To access this follow this link: http://west.core.mathletics.com/ParentCentreService-R83/ParentRegistration.aspx
A Mathletics challenge has been set over the Easter holidays. Can our pupils 'win' 2 mathletics certificates over the holidays?
