Dear parents and carers,
While the school is closed to certain year groups, class teachers will be emailing those parents with home learning activities for children to do on a daily basis. We’re trying our best to make sure it is accessible for everyone and hope that the children find it interesting and engaging, and you as parents find it manageable.
For children whose year group is open but parents are choosing not to send their children to school, we have collated a list of resources which will help you continue your child’s education while they are at home (please see below). BBC Bitesize and Oak Academy both offer a daily programme to follow, specific to each year group, while the other websites have a wide range of resources and activities for you to use to support your child’s learning.
