Weekly Learning Grids

Weekly learning grids and associated resources will be posted to Seesaw every Friday afternoon.  In addition, they will also be emailed to parents who have requested us to do.

Seesaw and class teacher support

Teachers will be available during the working week to authorise and provide appropriate feedback to the children’s uploads to Seesaw between 9am and 3.15pm.  We are not following our school class feedback policy at this time, however if your child’s class teacher suggests a next step, could we ask that you encourage your child to have a go, just as they would in class.

Class teachers will respond to emails sent to the [email protected] account between 9am – 10am and 2pm – 3pm.  If you require urgent contact with a member of staff, the Principal retains the overview of the letters account throughout the day and will respond accordingly.

If you require any support in using Seesaw, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Weekly Class Letters

The class teachers of Oare are sending weekly class letters to keep the children up-to-date. This will include details of home learning, class teachers sharing their news and WOWs to celebrate the children’s achievements at this time.

Class teachers can be contacted either through Seesaw or by email – [email protected]

Links to Educational Websites

Teachers will continue to use the learning platforms below to set work. Children are familiar with these platforms through the setting of work for homework. Any work set using these platforms will appear on the weekly learning grids.  If you require your child’s login or password please email [email protected]

Links to Free Educational Websites
