Learning at Home

Learning at Home

This page has been created to provide ideas and support for your child's learning at home journey. Please know these are just suggestions and there is no expectation that these are completed. This is a place to come if you are struggling for ideas of your own or want creative ways for your child to engage in learning at home.

From April the 14th Term 2 will begin. Teachers will be in contact with you and your children via Seesaw to provide further learning at home opportunities. We understand that every household will be different and these learning opportunities are for you to use as needed. You can engage with these as much or as little as you see fit. There is no obligation or expectation to work through every idea provided.

A reminder that your child’s teacher will be regularly updating learning opportunities and communicating with you via Seesaw. Teachers will be available for you and your child during school hours to communicate with about their learning. 

There are two different ways to use Seesaw:

Seesaw Family Login: This is a way for parents to connect with their child’s teacher/s. It is also a way for you to see your child’s learning on Seesaw and comment. You can NOT post your child’s home learning through the Seesaw Family app or login. To do this you will need to login as your child through the seesaw class app or student login online. Please ask your child’s teacher for the login so you can connect through the Seesaw family app.

Follow this link to login as a family member: https://app.seesaw.me/#/login?google_signout=1&role=parent

Seesaw Class Student Login: This is a way for students to post their learning to their class journal. The teacher and other students can see what has been posted and leave comments on each others learning. Each child has an individual login for Seesaw Class. If you do not have your child’s individual login please contact your child’s teacher. You can login as your child this way and post on their behalf if you wish.

Follow this link to login as your child using the home learning code provided by your child’s teacher:

Character Strengths

This is an opportunity for you and your children to spend time focussing on noticing and using your character strengths at home. How can these strengths be connected to the everyday life experiences and opportunities that are happening at home? If you want to complete the survey to help identify your own character strengths please follow this link to do this: https://www.viacharacter.org/survey/account/register


Citizenship – Attitude – Responsibility – Empathy 

Our I C.A.R.E. values are embedded through everything we do at Bayview School. How can these values also be recognised and connected to the everyday life experiences and opportunities that are happening at home? 

Sunshine Online and Sunshine Classics

Sunshine Online is used widely at Bayview School. It forms the basis of our literacy programme. The children are familiar with the resources. This includes literacy and maths for a range of levels and follow up learning. https://www.sunshineonline.co.nz/

Sunshine Classics is an individualised literacy resource. The books on here have been specifically chosen by your child’s teacher to support them at their current level. Children have their own individual login. If you do not have this please contact your child’s teacher via Seesaw or email so this can be provided. https://bookshelf.sunshineclassics.com.au/students/login
