EYFS Activities to do at home

 

Year 1-6 – Seesaw

https://web.seesaw.me/

All parents and carers in Year 1-6 have access to Seesaw. We have expanded this in order to provide work and activities in term time.

Seesaw offers an excellent tool for home learning. Teachers can upload worksheets or links to websites and set instructions for how to complete them. Children can write on worksheets using a tablet or computer and then return via the site.

The children do need a code to access this feature which they were given on their home learning packs. The Seesaw site has clear instructions online to help with access to remote learning.

Reception-Year 6 Reading:

We ask that you encourage your child to read each day and record their thoughts in their home school diary. They could write a review of their favourite books. Many book publishers (see below links) are offering free resources to parents.

 

For further home learning support we provide the following list of resources;
