Home Learning

During this current period of school closure we want to do our very best to support you as you try and home school your children. The most important thing is that your children feel safe. However, we have tried to put together some resources to support home learning below. 
Specific work for individual classes can be accessed using the links below. 

As of Monday 20th April 2020 there are two resources going live which have been commissioned by the DfE to support pupil home learning. The links for these are below:

The list below gives ideas for use across the school. In addition you will find other home learning ideas on individual class pages, on ClassDojo or on Tapestry.

 

We will add to our list regularly, but if you find something good, please let the us know so we can share it with our whole community.
