Please find below information to assist current parents with home learning during the Covid-19 closure.

Every pupil was given a home learning pack before school partially closed. All our teachers have been working hard to plan and deliver a virtual school during the school closures.

Ilminster Avenues online learning is moving to Seesaw! Seesaw is an online platform that allows children and parents to login and message their class teachers and share what they have learnt.

By now you should have received your unique Seesaw code by text message. If you have not, please email your class teacher who can share it with you.

Please go to https://web.seesaw.me/ or download the Seesaw app onto yours, or your child’s device. Click “I’m a student” and enter your code.

Your teacher has already set a number of fun activities for you to do!
