Learning From Home

 

If you are unable to be in school, we have some exciting home learning that you can take part in. This way you'll be able to keep on track with the rest of the class. There are lots of activities below for you to do: 

We'd love to hear how you are getting on - you can send us photos through your Interactive Learning Diary (ILD) or email.

Don't forget that we have access to lots of online learning too. If you can't remember how to log in then get in touch with your teachers. 

Nursery returning to School

 

If your children are returning to school next week there is some additional information for you below. You will now have received an information letter and a short video of what the classes and school looks like on your return. Check out the power point explaining all about the class bubbles below.

 

As the children will now be bringing in their own packed lunch, we recommend that you take a look at the school packed lunch policy below. All children will need to bring in a water bottle which they will use throughout the day as well as lunchtimes.

 

We will be working on PHSE activities about feelings and questions around returning to school to help the children settle back in. We will also be starting a new topic called How many pebbles on a beach? and will be posting more about this next week.

 

We are really looking forward to seeing you and welcoming you back!
