Distance Learning – Submitting Work

With regard to submitting work online, just as we do in the classroom, there will be times when the children’s work is required to be submitted but there will also be ongoing activities that do not need to be uploaded.

The children should be following the clearly set directions for each slide/subject area and not submitting all of their work.

It is important that the children have dated and labelled their work and if submitting through Seesaw that they are using the correct folders. They know this but may need reminding.

We thank you for your support.
