Home Learning

Welcome to our home learning page.

We fully understand supporting your children’s learning at home during lockdowns is really difficult, especially if you have children in a number of different year groups and/ or schools. We know trying to work at home alongside supporting your children is also a real challenge and we will continue to update this page with resources, support and guidance that we find.

During the recent Coronavirus school closures, we supported home learning by providing a timetable for you all to see the learning being delivered for each class. All resources that were needed were sent the day before via Seesaw. We aimed for a blend of activities that could be completed on screen and others that could be completed in the workbooks from the children’s home learning packs we provided. The sessions had video introductions, teaching demonstrations and voiceovers to support you and the children.

Please feel free to use these in addition to the work being set from your child’s class teacher if you find them useful and also adjust them to your child's ability level if this helps.
