Welcome to the new home of our home learning information. 

Here you will find all the useful links we have gathered during lock-down, as well as information about how we are using Microsoft Teams to help us for the remainder of the school year. 

If you have any questions about home learning, please get in touch with the school office. 

Wellbeing

We have been sent some great resources to help look after your mental well-being - all you have to do is watch the video then carry out the fun activities at a time that suits you!  You may even want to carry these out each Wednesday and call it your Wellbeing Wake-Up Wednesday.

English


We would like to let you all know that our English advisor, Phillip Webb, who helped us devise our English Curriculum has designed a Home Learning unit for parents. This unit takes the children on a learning journey, all the way from prediction to publication. The unit of work uses all of the approaches we use at school, so the children will be very comfortable with it. The work is suitable for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. It has powerpoints and worksheets to use at home, as well as pointers for the adults who are delivering the unit, so is an invaluable resource. I highly recommend!
