Well done to everyone for the schooling that is going on at home!
Next week we plan to start using ‘Online Educational Platforms’ in some classes to help us enhance the learning that is taking place.
Rang 6 are already using Class Dojo very successfully – this had been set up pre-lockdown.
Educational platforms are like streaming emails, teachers can communicate with the whole class or individual pupils; lessons can be distributed, completed and returned to teacher … all with one click.
The platform that we are starting with is SeeSaw, you can find out more at this link https://web.seesaw.me/ . You can learn about Google Classroom here https://edu.google.com/products/classroom/?modal_active=none .
***Please complete this parental consent form immediately*** as we hope to start using SeeSaw in some classes next week https://forms.gle/wdf9vvawwWq3P1u8A
As we are due to enter phase 1 of the loosening of lockdown restrictions next week, we are planning to arrange for the collection of the children’s school books on Wednesday, 20/05/20.
This will only happen if permitted under Department Guidelines – please keep an eye out for text/email early next week for arrangements/timetable.
