Dear Great Waldingfield CEVC Primary School community,

We want to do everything we can to support you in continuing your learning at home. Class teachers have put together a range of exciting websites you can visit. There is also more information about how you can access daily learning activities which your teacher has posted on the Seesaw platform. This can be found under 'Curriculum - Home Learning' or just CLICK HERE

Thank you for remaining at home to keep everyone safe and save lives.

Home Page

Home Learning

Welcome to our home learning zone!

 

We will be using Seesaw to offer daily learning tasks for you to complete at home. You can access Seesaw using your child’s Home Sign In Text Code through the website: https://app.seesaw.me/#/login or by downloading the ‘Seesaw Class’ app on your mobile/tablet.

On this page we would like to offer some additional resources which you may want to use to support your child’s learning. Please note- the use of any of these resources is optional, but we hope that you will find them useful.

Sites which we use at school

Your child should already be familiar with these sites and they will have a login which may be found in the front of their reading log. If your child does not know their login then they can contact their teacher on Seesaw.

Please note you may need to find the school on these websites for your child to access them using their school login. The school’s post code for this is CO10 0RR.

Additional websites and resources

Many of these sites are offering free or trial periods of their resources. We have broken them down into different subject areas, but many of them will often make links between different subject areas. None of the websites require payment to access, but some may require you to create a free account in order to login and access the site.
