Blended Learning

Blended Learning helps us to ensure continuous curriculum delivery in school & at home.

At St Patrick's we use Seesaw for our home-school communication. This is particularly useful whilst school is closed to parents and non-essential visitors during the pandemic. 

Should you be required to self-isolate or learn from home, teachers will communicate your learning through Seesaw.

Children in Key Stage Two also have a Century account as a learning tool from home.  Both Seesaw and Century are used to support homework.

How do we add work to the Seesaw 'journal'?

Click here for support with adding work to Seesaw

We ask that all work is submitted to the journal using a student/pupil account and not sent via the inbox system. Thank you

Can I access Seesaw using an Xbox?

Yes! Really!

Class Timetables during the national lockdown announced January 2021

From 15th January we have updated our offer to incorporate weekly timetables for each class which will be shared with families.

We continue to use Seesaw to share learning with families and timetables are sent home using this platform each Friday at 3:30pm for the following week.

 

You can access these by clicking on your class below:

Class Bolton

In order to adapt for remote learning, your teachers may have had to adapt the order of topics taught to best suit learning from home. The document below shows these adaptations:

Reading

Reading is an essential skill that we feel every child needs to practice every day! Please support your child to keep reading at home!

On the 'Pupils' page we promote an author every month and you can find information about them as well as extracts from some of their books! You will also find some great storytime audiobooks and other resources to support reading at home!
