As a school, we are trying to balance the learning needs of pupils with the pressures this whole situation places on families. Following consultation with you, Teachers are now setting the week’s work on a Monday to give you the flexibility to plan your week in a way that best suits you as a family. If you are having difficulty accessing this, please email your child’s teacher on their class email account (email@example.com) . For Y5 you can also email Mrs Tee on firstname.lastname@example.org.
On this page you will also find a variety of learning resources for you to do at home with your child. A lot of the activites are designed for pupils to complete on their own; however several will require some adult assisstance and may even be enjoyable for you and your children to complete together.
Remember your children have access to:
Times Table Rockstars
Classroom Screts Kids
School Spider login dashboard
