SEESAW ONLINE LEARNING FOR ALL PUPILS
We are now using Seesaw for our home learning while the school is closed. The website you need to use is http://seesaw.me. If you are using a tablet or a phone, you need to download the Seesaw Class app.
You should have received a letter in the post with instructions about how to set up and log in to Seesaw. This new platform will make it much easier for teachers to see what you are learning at home and for you to contact them too.
We have kept the past weeks' home learning on this page in case you want to see it, and you can still contact your teacher using the form at the bottom of the page if you want to.
