This section of the school website has also been dedicated to providing parents/carers with support with home learning, that may be taking place owing to the closure of the school or any bubble closures within the school. It is our aim, during the planned school calendar, for teachers to provide work on a daily basis. This will be accessible on the school’s online learning platform, Seesaw, and through a variety of live lessons, set activities, pre-recorded lessons and zoom sessions.
There is Epic Reading which is an online reading resource for pupils. Each class teacher has set up an account for the class and you should have the logins for this. Your teachers will provide pupils with reading books that they would like them to read but they have a wealth of other reading material online which they can and should explore.
Note: Make sure you go to the student/educator section when logging in. If you are having problems logging onto your child’s account please let us know and we will do all we can to rectify this problem for you.
