Our remote learning will be delivered through the learning platform Seesaw, for children in Key Stage 1 and 2, and Tapestry for EYFS.
These applications will also be used to support home learning in the form of homework, and also give children an opportunity to share activities and experiences from out of school with their peers, through a safe and secure online platform.
Seesaw (http://seesaw.me), is a secure, online journal where children can access and complete their remote learning tasks. Teachers can empower students to create, reflect, share, and collaborate. Students “show what they know” using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. It’s simple to get student work in one place and nothing is shared without teacher approval.

All students have been given an individual login code (QR or 12 letter code) to access and share their home learning. Whatever learning your child is doing at home, Seesaw allows them to share this with their teacher. This will ensure that the needs of all pupils are catered for and will allow staff to keep in daily contact and provide pertinent feedback to ensure that learning continues. Teachers will be able to schedule learning in a manner which does not overwhelm our pupils.
All children have been set up with an account so if you need your Seesaw code, please contact the school and a code will be sent to you later that day.
Please follow the link below to read the Frequently Asked Questions for Seesaw if you have any problems. If your question is not answered in this, then contact the school office and we will try to help.
Tapestry (https://tapestryjournal.com/) is an online application that collates learning that takes place for every child in Nursery and Reception. A range of media such as photographs, videos and written observations are taken of the child to highlight new learning that has taken place. Communication between school and home is an integral part of school life and Tapestry allows both parents and practitioners to discuss, comment or ask questions.
Our remote learning is also available on Tapestry during a school or bubble closure. Here, we set challenges, tasks and activities for children to complete via video or photographs and these are commented on by staff members regularly.
