To support families with home learning now that the Government has ordered schools to close, each class has created a home learning pack which you can use with your child. We also have lots of useful links to free resources to keep the children busy! 

 

To access the home learning packs, simply click on your child's class at the bottom of this page, this will take you to their page where work will be updated each week.

 

Please note that if your child is in Nursery, Abbey or Darwin, you can access their home learning resources by logging onto your child's Tapestry account.

 

Don't forget to check out our fit-zone, it is full of exercises that can be done at home. The Government have recommended that we all continue exercising to keep us fit and healthy! 

 

Have a look at our arts-and-crafts-zone for some great crafty ideas that you can do at home. The page also includes a feature on our 'Artist of The Month' and some activities that can be done in his style of art!  Our great friend Rory McCann is also providing weekly art tutorials which are not only beautiful to watch but will help develop skills in drawing and painting.

 

There's a lot of fun to be had with music whist you're at home, whether it's listen to music, singing or making music of your own.  Take a look at our music zone to give you some ideas.

 

We have created a mental-health-and-wellbeing page and a support-for-children-with-send page, these will have lots of information added to them that you may find useful. 

Video Resource Centre

We know how much our pupils love hearing stories being read at school so we are developing ways in which we can deliver story time whilst they are at home. Today you will be getting log on details to the video resource centre that is under the 'Children' section on the website or the direct link is below. A special video from Mrs Benge is waiting for you and there'll be more to come!
