Seesaw for Home Learning

On Monday I visited St Matthew’s Catholic Primary School to work with Mrs Moore in year six. The school hadn’t used Seesaw before at all. We managed to go from a standing start to Mrs Moore setting tasks which the children completed and handed in all in an afternoon.

The children were able to use the tools to create work based on fractions before completing work from the Seesaw activity library. They also created a film in iMovie which they handed in.

The Seesaw home learning codes mean the teacher can download and print off a letter for parents with an individual QR code and a text code for children to log in on a PC, Mac, Chromebook, iPhone, Android phone, Kindle Fire, iPad or Android tablet. Seesaw have more information on home learning here and a range of suggested activities here.
