In the event of an emergency school closure, pupils will be encouraged to continue to learn at home.
All children have been given a Home Learning pack to complete. They should complete 1 Literacy and 1 Numeracy worksheet per day. Each child has been provided with reading books which they should read with an adult and the adult should discuss the stories and ask questions about the text.
There is also a Home Learning Exercise book with each pack. Children should use this to complete exercises they have seen on Seesaw (as instructed) or on the provided websites or apps.
Each student has a unique Home Learning Code to access Seesaw. When signing in with their Home Learning Code, students can post to their journal, respond to activities, and view class announcements. Students do not see the work of any other student in the class.
How Do Students Use Their Home Learning Code?
We will be using Seesaw for home learning. Please sign in with your Home Learning code following the steps below:
1. Go to https://web.seesaw.me on a computer. Or install the Seesaw Class iOS or Android app.
2. Tap “I’m a Student”.
3. Scan or type in your Home Learning code. Each child's individual code is in their class home learning packs. If you have misplaced the code, please contact Miss Gault at firstname.lastname@example.org for a replacement code.
4. Post to your journal, respond to activities, and view class announcements.
5. Remember, this code is like a password. Keep it safe!
My School is the interface that all children use in Northern Ireland to access online tools and applications. Each P4 pupil will have their username and password attached to their home learning worksheet pack. This can be used to access this website. The children may use literacy or numeracy apps to assist their learning.
Espresso Education is an excellent online learning tool which covers all areas of the curriculum. P4 pupils already use this in school - we love doing the weekly NewsBites Quiz! Children's username and password for this website is attached to their home learning worksheet pack.
The Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 Teachers (P1-P4) have put together this list of websites and applications aimed at younger children that you might find useful over the coming weeks to practise key aspects of literacy and numeracy with your child.
