Our school uses the online learning platform, Seesaw, to provide remote and home learning for our pupils, both for their regular weekly homework and to provide additional learning in the event of a Year Group Bubble needing to close because of a confirmed case of covid-19.
This page gives lots of useful information about Seesaw and our expectations for its use.
In our school, remote education is led by our Assistant Headteachers, Mr Chance (based in Year 6) and Mrs Emmony (based in Year 2).
NATIONAL LOCKDOWN - SPRING 2021
While our school is closed between January and March 2021 due to the National Lockdown, teachers will set English, Maths and Topic tasks on Seesaw every day. They will also include other activities such as phonics, handwriting, Life Skills and PE activities. This work will remain on Seesaw for 24 hours before being replaced. This work will be adapted to the different learning needs of the children in the class and the work MUST be completed by children.
All work submitted by children will have feedback provided by the teacher.
Each year group will also provide live lessons via Zoom. Invitations to Zoom live lessons, along with safeguarding information and instructions will be posted on Seesaw 24-hours before it takes place.
Children can also access Mathletics and TT Rockstars using the log in codes we have sent out.
If parents have any problems accessing Seesaw, including issues with digital devices, they should contact the school office for help.
