RESOURCES FOR PARENTS DURING LOCKDOWN
We have put in place remote learning for the period that school is closed to most children. This is provided via Google Classroom and all children have log in details to access the work. Please check regularly for your child’s work for each week. There will be daily English, Maths and Phonics work together with extra tasks from foundation subjects such as RE and PE.
If you are not able to access the learning online you can request a paper copy from the school office – as the government has asked everyone to reduce journeys out of the home we’d ask that you only come to school to pick up a pack if it’s essential. Packs are available Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm.
Here are some other ideas – you don’t need to use them all, give them a go and see what works best for you.
