We have launched a new online version of our junior school library catalogue. The new system allows pupils, staff and parents to view our school library catalogue online, and pupils are encouraged to use this to help with research, to write reviews about books they have read, and search for new books that they may like to read.
The library catalogue, now searchable online, includes over 2000 books and audio-visual resources as well as many thousands of approved websites. You can access the system by clicking on the link below.
The first time you access the system it may ask you to install Microsoft Silverlight; please allow this to be downloaded and installed on your computer as the system cannot run without it.
There is also an App called ‘iMLS’, available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android & Windows Phone 7. This App can be freely downloaded by going to your App provider and searching ‘iMLS’.
Having the library accessible in this way and having parents engaged with reading will help to support our commitment to improving our pupil’s literacy standards. Your child has received their login details, if you would like to know what these are so that you can track their borrowing history, and perhaps help them to choose their next read, these will be available at parent consultations.
We have recently purchased some new maths software to support the children's learning in school. With RM Easimaths, parents and carers can support their children in activities and exercises at home that are consistent with how they learn in class and with the built-in support materials, parents and children can work through challenges together. Parents and carers can also be confident that their child's progress is being carefully monitored with the built-in reporting tools, and the work is being personalised for their child's individual ability level.
If you would like to access RM Easimaths from home click on the link and go to the login page. All children have been given a login, check with your child's class teacher if they do not have one. There is also an app available to download for Apple and Android devices.
TTRockstars is a quick-paced learning tool that allows children to practise their mental multiplication and division. The games display both multiplication and division facts for your children. Through the game, you are able to work on your own to earn coins or go up against your classmates, or even go against players around the world to show off your skills.
