As children are aware the Hwb is an interactive tool, which allows pupils to access class information and complete online tasks linked to lessons completed in school. The Hwb also allows teachers the opportunity to communicate with parents/carers about weekly homework tasks and upcoming activities in class. Parents are able to access curriculum information, links to other educational sites and general class information such as P.E days/reading at home information.
The Hwb has also recently introduced the use of new exciting features. These include Encyclopaedia Britannica, which can be used for research, Just2Easy, which has a range of typing, drawing and coding programmes and Office 365. These features can be accessed using your child’s Hwb log in details via https://hwb.wales.gov.uk and clicking the links on the right hand side of the page.
Upper school children will continue using the Hwb during the summer term to complete a blog post to reflect on lessons completed in class. Online homework in upper school will be set once a fortnight on a Wednesday and is expected to be completed by the following Monday. Lower school children will continue using the Hwb at home to reply to a discussion post set by their teacher on a fortnightly basis.
