Important Information regarding Home Learning

Updated 3rd April 2020

Dear Parents/Carers,

Here you will find our Home Learning Packs that can be accessed for each year group. Each pack contains daily activities to be completed.

 

If your child is absent from school and they are able to, please can they work through their relevant year group pack each day, beginning from Monday, 23rd March. If your child finds the content of their year group pack too difficult, then they should look at the year group below. There will also be additional needs packs for children with additional requirements or SEN/D.

 

New Home Learning Packs will be added each week in readiness for the children to begin the following Monday (30th March), so your child/children should work through these each day completing the activities.

 

If the school closes, then the on line packs can still be completed. This is to ensure that no child’s learning should suffer as a result of isolation.

Your child needs to read every day and practice tables, spellings and phonics every day. 

 

Please contact school to collect a book and stationary, or ask a friend to collect on your behalf. Please contact school if you have any difficulties.

 

Thank you

D. Ainscoe

Mrs D. Ainscoe

How does it work?

The Home Learning materials below work on a File Sharing system, you can click on the folders and documents below to download and access them. Also, the work is uploaded into weekly folders to ensure that your child has enough learning materials and to help you keep track of work that has already been done.

 

Please note that all the files may not be listed or viewed, check the zip folder to download and see all of the activities for you child/ren.  

Thanks, 

Mr Chase
