Welcome to our Learning pages.
The relationship between home and school has never been more important. We recognise that many of you are supporting your children's learning whilst juggling many other demands and we understand that there will be challenging days!
We are here to support you.
Below you will find our remote learning offer which hopefully explains how we are providing your child with the support, resources and the teaching they need.
There is loom presentation to go alongside the document which hopefully helps it all make sense!

Whole School Activites
Keep a simple routine. Early nights and up at a decent hour.
- Read, read, read. Put in a daily reading session and stick to it. This is the number one skill and would be the best thing that you can do. If they return to school a better reader, then this time has been well spent. This goes for all ages.
- Play board games. There’s lots of really great developmental value in a game - language, maths, critical thinking. Anything from Guess Who to Monopoly. You can also get these on the Xbox if needs be.
- Cook tea. Make the meals together and learn how to bake or cook.
- Paint and build. Lego is incredibly educational. Give your child a challenge each day of something to build. You could take pictures or make stop-motion animation videos on your phone.
- Go Noodle. A super funky online dance and exercise website that's free. The children love doing this at school and it also has meditation and mindfulness.
- Create a Powerpoint. Let your child make a Powerpoint about something that they are interested in. They can upload it or present it to you. The children at school love Powerpoint!
- Create a journal. This would be a book to write stories, to draw or to document what you and your family have been doing.
