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

School Closure

(Art work by Kady-Mae Hastings)

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.

It has been my pleasure to teach Siskin Class this year. You have all made outstanding progress and it is important to recognise that this learning has not been in vain.

Even though you are not physically in our classroom each day, we can all continue our education via this virtual classroom - you are still my pupils and I am still your teacher!

The subheadings beneath the 'School Closure' tab will take you to the specific daily activities.

If you require any further resources, please check the 'Links' section, which includes a list of useful resources. These will be updated and added to regularly. You were all given a paper-based pack of tasks, which you can work from whenever you wish. Likewise, you have full access to SATs Companion where you can practise all aspects of the Key Stage 2 Maths and English Curriculum.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance:
