What if my child has forgotten their login for Seesaw or Times Table Rockstars?
All class teachers have access to their logins for both digital platforms. If you child requires a new login, these can be easily given to your child.
Will my child get into trouble for not doing homework?
No, children will not be in trouble if they have not completed a task. Of course we would like to encourage families to engage in extending their learning and reading at home. We do offer lunchtime homework clubs for anyone unable to complete their homework to offer support and time for them to complete it.
Do I only have one week to complete homework or reading record entry?
Home learning is expected to be completed within a week of the deadline. However, the tasks will remain on Seesaw throughout the term. This allows flexibility for families to go back and complete sections when they have the time.
Does the home learning have to follow the exact tasks set on seesaw?
No - we want pupils to follow their interests and use their creativity. If reading a book has inspired them to create a piece of artwork then Seesaw allows them to share that with their teacher and their peers. As with home learning, Seesaw is fantastic for sharing ANYTHING that your child has enjoyed over the past week, so add those onto their home learning activity!
I don't have access to digital resources, can I still do home learning?
Yes! Reading records can still be brought in to school and shared with class teachers. Work done on paper can still be posted onto Seesaw.
What are the benefits of using digital resources?
- Staff can 'like' and 'comment' on uploads to show that have seen it and provide feedback on activities as well as praising the pupil's hard work.
- All activities are instantly shared on devices. There is no paper trail or book for children to remember in order to complete home learning.
- We want to maintain the fantastic teacher, child and parent interactions we built up over school closure - Seesaw will allow us to do that and more.
