6th Class
All children utilise the Edmodo app to engage in digital learning daily. Edmodo has both a student and parent app that is easily accessible with password from the class teacher. The parent and student apps are linked and ensures that teachers, children and parents are connected with communication sent regularly from the classroom. Children are regularly assigned online assignments through Edmodo designed by their teacher.


All children use the school’s 20 iPads to add to their online portfolios and engage in suitable apps chosen by their teacher. A bank of laptops are utilised every day for typing, browsing, researching topics,creating powerpoints or accessing pallets created for investigative research. All children are proficient in typing, saving documents and uploading documents to their online portfolios.


The spelling programme Spellings For Me gives each child access to their individual accounts for trembly spelling assessment and spelling lists. Daily use of iPads gives all children opportunities to experience different learning methodologies. Kahoot is always a great hit.
