    Take a look at the pointillism paintings created by the children in school today. The images are made of dots but when the page is held at a distance, the dots form a picture.

    Let's keep sharing our learning (westfield Admin)

    Posted Tuesday 12th May

    Lots of our amazing pupils have been sharing photos and videos of their learning with each other - and many of you have said you really enjoy seeing each other. So let's get sharing! Mr Wilkinson has had quite a few enquiries from pupils and parents about being able to share photos with each other, and lots of you have said how much you'd really like being able to see more photos and videos of your friends - so let's make it happen. 
    A few of us seem to have forgotten all that stuff Mr Wilkinson keeps going on about in computing lessons about how to share your files, so this handy little video might just remind you (and perhaps show some of you a few things you didn't know). 
    Your online storage space is unlimited, so you really can upload as much as you like - including videos and not just photos.


    You can save your stuff privately just for you to see, email it to a friend, or use the publish option to share with your class, your year group or the whole school - the choice is always yours (and no one should ever make you share something you don't want to share - see our #consent page for more information) but when it's done right, sharing is great fun for everyone.  #sharewithcare
    If you get stuck, you can email Mr Wilkinson from your learning platform account.

  • How to mark a task as finished once you have completed it (Mr Webb)


    Hello! Some children have been finding it tricky to mark a task as complete on the Learning platform.

    There are a few ways, depending on what the task has asked you to do.

    First of all, log into your Learning Platform account.


    On your ‘Things To Do’ tab, you should see all of the tasks that you have not yet marked as completed.

    Click on the task and it will take you to more detail, links etc. telling you what we would like you to do.


    For some of the tasks, we are not expecting a written outcome and you will be able to mark it as finished by clicking a button

    For others, we might ask you to upload a file to show us what you have been doing. This might be a word document with some writing, a picture of some writing or drawing, or maybe a photo of your project or you completing it.

    For this, open the task in the same way, scroll to the bottom of the task and click the ‘upload button’.

    Click on the file you want to upload and the task will disappear. It is now complete!


    Your teacher will be able to see that your work is complete, as well as be able to access the document that you uploaded.

    Once your teacher has received your work, they will acknowledge it. You will see this as a notification.

    I hope this helps! Let your teacher know if you are still struggling!
