During closure, teachers are setting home learning tasks each week. These will be uploaded every Monday morning.
Please click on your class name for a link to your learning tasks this week. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are also using Tapestry and Classes 3-6 are using See Saw.
Please check emails from your child’s class teacher for log on details.
We know this is a challenging time for families and we urge you not to feel pressured to complete all the learning provided by your child’s teacher.
Alternatively, you may feel your child could manage a little more, or you’d like further activities to keep them busy. The following links could be used to supplement the home learning provided by your child’s class teacher. We particularly recommend the new programmes available from Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize.

Your child may well be spending more time online, both for their learning and recreation.
At this time we must all be very aware of the risks to young people when using the internet.
We recommend that all internet use is supervised. This means children should generally be using pcs, laptops, phones and tablets in a shared space in your home, or that you should be regularly overseeing what they are doing if this is not possible. We still expect that children will follow our behaviour expectations when online, which are:
- Never give out any personal information
- Keep your comments kind when communicating online.
- Bad language is never acceptable in person or online
- Act inclusively (don’t leave anyone out of groups)
If you have any concerns about behaviour online, these should be reported to me immediately.
