We are currently open to Nursery, Reception, Year 1, Year 5 and Year 6

School Closure

On this page you will find work and activities set by your class teacher during this period of school closure.

At the start of each day, maths and English tasks will be set for you to complete at home, therefore it is important that you check every morning to see what your daily tasks are. All of the tasks will be based on the learning that you have already covered this year, giving you the opportunity to become experts!

In addition to this, there will be a set of weekly activities linked to our whole-school topic. This half-term we will be studying ‘Greece/Ancient Greece’. You may work through these activities in any order you wish.

We recommend that you do some form of daily exercise. Joe Wicks is continuing to broadcast his morning workout sessions via his You Tube channel. The ‘Go Noodle’ website also provides a wide range of ideas for movement and mindfulness activities to take part in.

Each class web page also contains a range of links to other optional activities that you may choose to explore.

We understand that working from home brings many different challenges compared to working in a school environment. Therefore we ask that you undertake the recommended work to the best of your ability and in a way that suits you and your family circumstances. We do not expect work to be printed off, or presented in a particular way. If you wish to send screenshots of your work, or photographs of yourself undertaking the activities to your teacher, then please feel free to do so - they will be more than happy to receive these.

Your wellbeing is of paramount importance to us; we encourage you to spend time each day doing the things that make you happy!

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher via the email address provided.

Please contact me if you need any further assistance, let me know how you are getting on with your learning or just to share your good work. I look forward to hearing from you!

Wish Jar Activity

During this uncertain time children can feel worried and anxious about the unknown. Set up this nice activity of a wish jar. Every time you wish you could do something, go somewhere, treat yourselves, see someone you love, visit a new place, invite people to visit you, write it down on a post it note and pop it in a jar. When this is all over, this will be your bucket list. You will work your way through the jar and will be more grateful than ever for the little and lovely things in your lives. Until then enjoy watching your jar fill up with magical things to look forward to.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Mrs Evans
