Home Learning Platforms

If you need to access your child’s learning from home please make sure you are checking Purple Mash and Seesaw. This is where their class teacher will set them work as well as response to any work. Ensure you check to see if your child’s teacher has sent anything back to them for improvements. Please be aware that we will endeavour to give feedback the next day.

All login information is inside your child’s reading diary.

Online Safety

While learning online,  remember to Stay Safe.  This week we celebrate Safer Internet Day on Tuesday, 9th February.  There are lots of online resources to support this, including this short video from the UK Safer Internet Centre on ‘What you can trust online’, which you may wish to watch with your child:


Your own free reader online with Oxford Owl

Oxford Owl Resource Page Year 3 and 4

We have found a website which offers free online e-books to read during this time as you cannot visit the library in town or at school.

Follow this link to get onto the site and follow the instructions to log on.

We’d love to create an online review file so we will be sending a book review sheet, via Purple Mash, for your child to complete once a book is read. We’d love to see some pictures or thoughts on the books you read on Seesaw too! You could even upload a video of your reading.

There is an alternative site you might like to try too…. https://www.booksfortopics.com/storytime-online

Maths – Please watch the lesson video each day to be found on the timetable and then complete the worksheet to upload on to Seesaw for your teacher to feedback.

Seesaw is an online platform that allows children to complete tasks at home on the computer. It is also a brilliant resource for allowing teachers to share with you the work your child has been doing in school.
