A Guide to Seesaw
Seesaw Classroom is specifically for students. It has been predominantly used just in the classroom and has only been made available for home learning due to the pandemic; this is why there are two apps.
Before the pandemic, parents were only aware of Seesaw Families, as this was used by teachers to share the work on Seesaw class with those at home. If you have more than one child using Seesaw Classroom you will need to log out and log the other child in when viewing or updating work.
Providing you have each child's QR code this should be a quick and simple process. The children do not need to be continually logged in, homework is set once a term, and Guided Reading every Monday.
If there are any additional updates you'll be notified by the teacher on the Seesaw Family app. Seesaw Families is a way to keep parents updated with their child's learning journey. Examples of this may include showing you something your child has completed in class or keeping you up to date with key information.
To submit work or record reads please see below.
