SEESAW UPDATE: 
Just to remind you that Seesaw online learning will be starting on Tuesday 14th April. 
You will be sent an activation code, via email, on the morning of Tuesday 14th. Then you can log on and receive a welcome message from your child's teacher/s. You can also upload any photos or videos that you have or write a message to show/tell your teacher what you have been up to over the Easter break.
 
You will receive your first 'Learning Drop' for your child on Wednesday the 15th April at 10am. 
There is a tutorial (above) which will guide you through the steps of using Seesaw. Including; how to log in, receive your welcome message, upload photos and videos, how to write your teacher a message and respond to activities.
 
Open the attachment above to see the tutorial.
 
We look forward to seeing you on Seesaw very soon!
 
The following are ideas only, and can be used to supplement the activities on Seesaw: 
 
Online Learning
Activity for Supporting Physical Development: 
Also, remember that children need physical and sensory breaks - which could just be a few mins inside stretching, dancing, lifting, pushing, jumping etc, or outside in garden or wherever is safe. Walking, scootering, trampolining etc is good. These websites can help with some of this:
* Go Noodle, exercise for getting the heart beating and well loved by Ladysmith children:  https://www.gonoodle.com/
* Cosmic Kids, Yoga for calming:  https://www.cosmickids.com/
* Lots of healthy living activity: https://www.nhs.uk/change4life/activities
 
Projects and Creative activity: 
It is also an opportunity to build relationships through 'projects' and sharing things. Cookery, sewing, art, DT are all things that can be done together as co-adventurers. It is also a good chance to keep talking about emotional recognition and identification, physical signs and feelings, expressions etc. 
 
English:
For our Share a Million Stories Project: Children could also draw/paint a picture, make a story map and/or write about one of their favourite stories to send into school to go with our reading display.
