This is a challenging and perhaps anxious time for everyone.

We know that all of our families will be trying to find balance whilst juggling home learning with jobs, day-to-day running of the home, looking after relatives, childcare, etc.

The activities and links that you have all received are there for you to access when appropriate and when you can. 

We do not want to add any further stress and anxiety to what is already a difficult time.

Our priority is that everyone within our school community is safe and well and able to manage their anxiety and emotions during this time. 

If you are experiencing difficulties and need support, please do get in touch.

Quick Links

Whilst you are working through the home learning provided, please remember that, if the work was being done at school, it would probably take longer than when children do it at home.  Teachers have to explain to 30 children and check they all understand before children start to work by themselves.  Please do not worry about or try to fill 5 hours every day of school work.

As well as the learning packs that were sent home, there are many online PE sessions happening – Joe Wicks and Oti Mabuse have brilliant workouts and live dance sessions.  There are also the “Physical Friday” challenges that we send out. There are a number of YouTube sites that teach how to draw or create different art projects. 

Reading – Please continue to encourage daily reading. We have always worked together to foster a love of reading and this should continue even though school is closed.  A number of famous authors are sharing books online and Amazon are not charging for many audio books.  Try to enjoy the shared experience of reading aloud and perhaps laughing at an old favourite together!

Mental Maths – For younger children, keep counting – forwards, backwards, counting on from a given number or saying the next 2 or 3 numbers in a sequence.  In particular, focus on crossing over the tens barrier e.g knowing that 70 comes immediately after 69. 

For older children, keep practising on TimesTable Rockstars!
