Coronavirus (Self Isolation Home Learning) 2023 - 2024


Just another quick update as we all start getting a little more used to school being closed. Staff are continuing to work in school looking after key worker children or from home. Certain staff members are still tasked with managing learning via the school website whilst others are in the classroom with children. This means you might not get responses from your actual teacher, but someone will get back to you. 

Work will continue to be set each day for Maths and English and there will be a weekly task sheet. All will be uploaded to relevant class pages. We will also keep adding to the list of good websites below, so keep checking these out. 

Useful Resources:

We have saved a number of resources to the 'Files to Download' area at the bottom of the page. Keep checking this section for additional resources. Links inlude a suggested timetable, lego challenge and a French activity grid with links to videos and games. There is also some advice from the British Pyschological Association on how to look after your emotional well- being over the next weeks.

Some new resources and links:

Literacy Trust- The Book of Hopes This is an online book to comfort, inspire and entertain children during lockdown.

Coronavirus- A book for children- Please find this in the downloads section. It is a child friendly way to talk about the virus with your family.
