Learning online at home
As a school, we use a number of online tools that help us to teach children at home. We use these primarily for homework but they can also be used in circumstances that require children to be at home; as was the case during the Covid19 pandemic lockdowns.
This page will provide parents and pupils with the information they need to access work at home.
Key Stage One - Seesaw
If you're child is in Nursery, Reception, Year One or Year Two they will use Seesaw to access work set by their Class Teacher. You can access Seesaw via a desktop computer, tablet or mobile device. It is very easy to use and will allow pupils to interact with their teacher and receive feedback on completed tasks.
In order to initially register for Seesaw, you will require a unique registration code. Please speak to your child's teacher to obtain this code and registration instructions.
Key Stage Two - Google Classroom
If you're child is in Year 3, 4, 5 or 6 they will use Google Classroom to access work set by their Class Teacher. Pupils can access Seesaw via a desktop computer, tablet or mobile device. It is very much a virtual classroom which will allow pupils to interact with each other and their class teacher. They will be able to submit a range of learning tasks and receive marked feedback from teachers. Teachers also have the opportunity to arrange virtual meet-ups via video calls to check in with their classes from home.
Pupils will use their school email address and password to login to Google Classroom. All pupils in these year groups will use these details during the school day and will be very used to login into the Google Platform. If you require password reminders etc, please contact your child's Class Teacher.
