NEW HOMEWORK AND VIRTUAL LEARNING APP.

16 Sep 2020 | BY asf

We are excited to introduce our new homework and virtual learning platform, SEESAW.

From Friday, we will be using Seesaw to give out homework. In addition, during periods of local lockdown, or self isolation we will be using Seesaw to teach classes virtually or provide self isolating pupils with ongoing activities. Teachers can share activities, verbal instructions, videos, pictures etc, and children can reply in similar ways.

The children will be encouraged to work in different ways – practically, using written work, verbally and using IT at times. This app will NOT mean that homework will be completed using a computer all the time.

Seesaw can be accessed using ANY computer, smartphone, tablet, laptop etc and works with android or apple.

 

On Friday, your child will be shown how to use Seesaw. This week’s homework will just be a practice using it. Your child will be sent home with their unique code to access Seesaw.

Here is a link for you to watch, so that you know how to help your child get started.

We intend to use Seesaw for homework for now. This will mean that we can quickly switch to using it for virtual learning should we need to, to provide continuous learning, should we have to partially or fully shut the school.

If you have any questions, as always, we will try to help. If you are interested in finding out more go to YouTube and search for ‘Seesaw Class app’ or click here…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1_mBy1EI0M&safe=active
