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: as a guide, try doing 1 English activity, 1 maths activity and 1 creative activity a day.

We'd love to hear how you are getting on - you can send us photos through Class Dojo or email.

Daily Home Learning Documents

These documents are also uploaded on Class Dojo daily. If you are yet to sign up, please email your class teacher how to create an account so you can see your child's set work. Children can either upload it to Class Dojo or send a picture to Mr Grierson's or Miss Marriott's email. A weekly timetable is also below as a guideline. You do not need to follow this but just as a suggestion to help with routine. 

Remember, this is a suggested timetable and we do not expect you to do it all. On the timetable, you can see what we will be uploading to Class Dojo daily so you and your child can choose what you would like to do.
