Remote Learning 2020 - 2021
We have now developed an improved system of remote learning using an online platform called Seesaw. Seesaw allows us to post work for the children to complete or respond to. They may be asked to take and upload a picture, make something, type or draw something - there are lots of ways for them to show their learning.
Each child has been sent a QR code and/or a log in. We have used the platform successfully when setting work for whole classes during bubble closure and individuals who have had to isolate. If you need to ask about any aspect of the platform or the learning, call or email the school please.
HOME LEARNING MARCH - JULY 2020
Every week of term time we will send out home learning planning for each year group, along with other interesting links or activity sheets that we come across. The original letter accompanying the work sent out for the first week of home learning has all of the information about websites, passwords and is really useful - have a look at it if you are short of something to do at any point!
Don't forget you can also use any of the resources on our 'Kidszone' website page!
Remember, you can email your class teacher at any time with pictures of work or questions. They will check their emails every day and get back to you.
Have fun and stay safe.
With children and young people out of education settings at the moment, families may be needing a bit of extra help to keep their child’s education progressing, or just to keep them entertained. The Local Offer, Hertfordshire’s website for families of young people aged 0 -25 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), has a resources area where parents and families can find materials and resources they can use to help their child learn key skills. The resources area specifically looks to support those families whose child has an additional need, but it can be used by any family, and may have certain educational activities that can help any pupil to develop a skill they may be struggling with
The resources area includes:
• Activity sheets and ideas provided by the Specific Learning Difficulties team, which can help progress in key areas including writing, memory, numbers and spelling
• Practical help for children who are struggling with their mental health, either as a result of COVID19 or more generally •Help with explaining COVID-19 to younger children and young people with autism, including social stories and easy read documents
• Materials which help young people to develop their independence, including cooking activities
• Lots of fun ideas for your children to do independently or as a family at home to encourage them to explore and use their imagination
Find it all at the Local Offer Website and do share it with families if you feel it would benefit them.
