To address and be prepared for the possible need for home learning, we have created two unique accounts for each student. One account is for MICROSOFT OFFICE and one account is for SEESAW. Each child will be sent home with two sheets detailing their their personal sign in details, so please keep a lookout for this important information. Some of you may have already received your child’s Microsoft Office log-ins by text for the virtual Parents Evenings, in which case please disregard the password on the slip and instead use the new password you would have been prompted to set.
Microsoft Office will allow each student access to a whole array of apps from Microsoft Office, using their own unique log in (which should look something like 18John.Smith@hookprimary.co.uk). The most useful apps include Teams (for seeing their teacher and classmates via an online meeting or lesson), Word (for typing up documents) and Outlook (which is for emails).
Instructions for activating your child’s Microsoft Office account can be found here: https://hookprimary.co.uk/microsoft-office/
Seesaw is where teachers will post work and associated documents for home learning lessons and projects. Children can post to theirlearning journal, respond to activities, view class announcements. They cannot see the work of any other child in their class.
The sign in details will have been sent home on an A4 letter with full instructions on how to activate their account. These codes are like passwords, so please keep them safe! Seesaw can be used on a desktop computer by going to https://app.seesaw.me or by installing the Seesaw Class App on an iOS or Android device.
If you would like help using the accounts, please call us on 01405 762576 or email email@example.com
