welcome to tater du

SORRY ABOUT THE MESS... BUT WE ARE LEARNING HERE!

Our Awesome EYFS Team

Class Teachers - Mrs Burlton and Miss Downing

LSAs - Mrs Snelson, Mrs Tregear

Welcome to the Tater Du homepage.

We are already a couple of weeks into the new term and we have nearly welcomed all our new pupils into school. Given the current situation and the uncertainty of the past six months we couldn't be prouder of the way that that the children have already taken to school life. They have all taken everything completely in their stride and we are so thrilled to have them with us.

Well done Tater Du - You are all wonderful!

Seesaw is a new platform that all classes are using to support and celebrate the children's home-learning.

https://web.seesaw.me/

Due to the current restrictions, we will be using Seesaw to provide and enhance your child's home-learning opportunities, whilst also using it as a means of communication and to let you know what we've all been up to.

You should already have your child's login details for Seesaw but we will be sending these home again in their reading records.

Through this site you can upload any thing that your child does at home into their own online journal. You can upload photos, videos, documents and text, as well as simply type up a message to let us know what they have been up to and in turn- we can message back to say how wonderful they are!
