Learning at Home

Home learning during school closure

If your child is struggling with any home learning, teachers will be available to support via the SeeSaw platform.  Pupils should know how to leave comments and ask questions.

The following websites are useful for home learning:

SeeSaw - SeeSaw is a secure online platform that the children regularly use to support and showcase their learning in school. 

Pupils have been provided with personalised QR and text codes to access their individual SeeSaw accounts where they can upload work and complete activities set by their teacher. 

Pupils can access their accounts via the SeeSaw app (free to download from the App Store or Google Play) or the desktop version at web.seesaw.me. To access their account, children will need to scan the QR code in the SeeSaw app or input the personalised text code. Please ensure that your child does not share their personalised QR or text code with anyone else.  Teachers may broadcast activities or information.  Teachers can also respond to questions or give pupils additional support if required.

MyMaths - Interactive maths learning for the whole school. Pupils will log in using their own username and password.  Teachers will set work for your child to complete.

Times Tables Rockstars - Pupils access Times Tables Rockstars to support learning their times tables. This is a school-wide resource. Each pupil has their own username and password in the back of their home learning books.  The App is free to download on any device.

White Rose Maths - The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a series of five brand new maths lessons for each year group from Years 1-8. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.

Maths Frame (Year 4 only) - In Year 4, and in preparation for the Multiplication Tables Check in June, children also use Maths Frame which has a layout similar to the actual Multiplication Tables Check. The children will complete the Multiplication Tables Check via a laptop and they are encouraged to use the number pad. More information on the Multiplication Tables Check is available at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/multiplication-tables-check-development-process. Other year groups may use Maths Frame for extension activities.
