As part of our distance learning during the current COVID 19 closure, children in 3rd – 6th classes will now be using Seesaw.
Seesaw is a digital portfolio tool which allows pupils to store their work in an online space and gain feedback from their teacher. It can be used on a computer (PC) or tablet. It effectively enables teachers to set tasks or assignments and include instructions or templates for students to use at home through distance learning. More information about Seesaw is available on the PDST website – https://www.pdst.ie/DistanceLearning/Platforms/seesaw.
Now that we are using Seesaw, we have updated our Acceptable Use Policy to include this. .
Our school is currently closed but when we re open we are going to focus on reading for enjoyment. We would ask our girls to send in photos of themselves reading a book or having a book read to them! Please email this to email@example.com and we will put them up on the website and in the school.
A few weeks ago, we had Nore Valley Farm deliver an incubator and eggs to our school. We had hoped to watch these hatch and watch the chicks grow for a couple of weeks before they went back to the farm. Due to the unforeseen closure of schools, Ms Ryan took these home to care for them. The eggs have started to hatch today!
