In the event of school closure, the teachers and staff have prepared a range of activities to support your child with their learning journey that would otherwise take place in school. To access this learning, click on your child’s class page where you will find set tasks for each week.
Whilst the tasks may vary, there will always be maths, spelling, reading and writing activities with some linked to topic work.
An exercise book has been sent home with your child. Feel free to annotate, comment and stick work into this book and we can use it at school as a record of the work completed
We understand that this situation may be unsettling for some children so have attached the following powerpoint that explains COVID-19 in simplistic terms, you may wish to share this with your child:
We would like to take the opportunity to say thank you for your ongoing support in this period of uncertainty. Please be reassured that we will keep you informed of any changes and developments.
Hopefully, this situation will be short term and we can return to our normal school routine as soon as possible.
