Message from Learning Support Team
We hope this finds you all safe and well. As you are aware, your child receives support from our team with their learning. We have continued to work alongside teachers to ensure that your child can continue to learn even though they are not in school. We want you to know that we are here to support you at any stage during this difficult time. Below are some helpful reminders to support you.
Rachelle McDermott & Jenny Young
Seesaw has been set-up to support your child and you throughout this time. All tasks are individually set to meet your child’s needs and can be completed by them independently once they get onto Seesaw and know how to navigate around it.
Unsure about what to do? Feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? As always, we are all here to help you, whatever you need support with. We will do all we can to get you connected on-line and to support you and your child.
Practical learning opportunities are not only fun, but they give you and your child time to connect and learn together. There are lots of amazing ideas available through Seesaw.
Play – imaginative, creative, construction, games, dressing-up and more. Playing each day is so important for all children. Encourage and engage with this as much as possible.
Organise your day to include time for learning. Try and map out time each day for your child to complete their on-line learning tasks. Routine, at this time especially, is so important for everyone’s well-being.
Read, read, read. A little bit of reading at any time during the day makes all the difference to your child and is key to all areas of their learning. Read whenever you can – morning, afternoon, evening or bedtime.
Together we can do this. We want to ensure that your child continues to learn through this challenging time and we want to assure you that we are here to support you all the way. (E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
