To help pupils continue to learn from home, parents can access our RMUnify page which has many of the resources that we use in class. Details will be sent to parents about how to help your child/children to sign in via Parentmail.
Opportunities for home learning and e-learning
Here are a list of suggested websites and activities that you might want to do with your child if you are in self-isolation or school has been closed.
A copy of the Curriculum Overviews, which show what the children are learning can be found on our website here.
EExAT – Our Nursery and Reception classes use the Early Excellence Assessment Tracker to share photos of learning at home and in school. Every child in EYFS has a parent login which is set up at the start of each new school year. Parents/carers can see some of the activities enjoyed in school and can upload photos, short video clips and comments about their child’s learning at home. All of the information is then used to create each child’s learning journal and contributes to the assessment tracker at the end of each term.
In the event of school/bubble closure, ideas for activities and links to useful websites will be sent home via parentmail once a week and children are encouraged to share what they have been doing using the online platform. If you are unable to access EExAT for any reason please contact the class teacher.
Seesaw - All children should have a login for Seasaw which was sent out via Parentmail. Seasaw is our online learning platform of choice and is available for all KS1 & KS2 children. If you don't have a login for your child, please email the school via firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be sent out to you via Parentmail.
KS2 - This is a link to the home page we use at school https://tawe018.rmunify.com and can be used to access the sites listed below.
If your child is in years 3 to 6 they can then login with their own username and password that they use at school when they log in to the laptops.
