We're really proud that lots of you got behind the workers of the NHS yesterday by making a load of noise from your front door steps! It will have meant a huge amount to all those people who are working so hard to keep us all safe at the moment to know just how much they're appreciated. Well done, gang. We think you're fab.
Love from Mrs Bibby and Miss Gregory
Message for parents/carers
Thank you for all you do to support your child's learning whilst school is closed. We recognise that this is an unusual and unsettling time for all families but we are here to provide any help that we can.
Now we've had a few days to trial a few ideas, we thought we'd let you know the plan going forward.
Each week we plan on uploading a home learning newsletter. This will contain activities to explore areas of the wider curriculum (science, art, music, PE, etc.) Then we will post a daily core learning resource. This will consist of reading, writing, spelling and maths activities. Please feel free to use both of these suggested ideas in whatever way works for you and your family. There is no pressure to complete any of the activities. We will continue to add daily challenges and other suggestions to widen the children's experiences and let them explore something a bit different whilst they are home learning .
Daily Core Learning
Want to show us some amazing work? Need help with something?
Drop us an email and we will try to get back to you within school hours.
Have a look below for our daily challenges - these will be a bit different to the kinds of activities you'll find in the home learning newsletter and daily core learning.
Come back here each day to find a new challenge!
