The children have been given 2 homework books today (10th September). Normally homework will be set on a Monday and will need to be returned by the following Monday. To start getting the children used to the system, we have given them 1 page of GPS (grammar) homework and 1 page of maths homework. This will need to be back in school by next Monday.
Introducing Seesaw our learning platform.
Your child will be coming home with an invitation to join a new learning platform, Seesaw.
Please click below to be taken to the site.
Seesaw is an online learning platform that is accessible from most electronic devices connected to the internet and addresses some of the issues gathered from our parent feedback from the lockdown :
· Printing – worksheets not great - seesaw allows children to edit and adapt worksheets on their devices and submit.
· Access - some only could use tablets/phones - Seesaw is accessible from most devices.
Over the next few weeks we will be showing the children how to use the new platform in the event of any further lockdowns to help us to improve the delivery of our remote learning.
