Hi Dragons! 
I just wanted to remind you and your adults about our great new home learning platform, Seesaw, which has just launched. We have put some Maths and English activities on there for  this week and you can also find the Iron Man home learning ideas for this term. Mrs Bentley and I cann't wait to see what you come up with! Your adults should have received information about how to access Seesaw, but, to make it easy, here is the information again....

The platform can be accessed using:
 a web browser on a laptop/PC or a free app for smartphones and tablets (the app can be downloaded from
the App Store or Google Play)
 a personal QR code which we will send separately with log in instructions.

It is important that you are able to log in to Seesaw. In the event of any class closures or for children who are
isolating, we will also use the platform to set daily learning tasks. Children will be able to complete tasks at home and
upload them for their class teacher to provide feedback. Here is a short video you can watch to find out how to use
the app:

From Thursday 1st October we will also be using the platform to set home learning activities. Children in Years 1 to 6
will be set a weekly English or Maths task linked to their current learning. We will also share our topic takeaway list.
This is a list of tasks from which you can select an activity each week to support your children in developing their
knowledge of the topic. Children may complete tasks in their Home Learning Book or, alternatively, you may get
creative and upload their home learning on the Seesaw app!

We think you are really going to enjoy using Seesaw but if you have any problems, just get in touch.
