We understand the difficulties the school closure could cause in the coming weeks. Trying to keep children entertained during a standard holiday is difficult enough without the restrictions we are suddenly under.
Children have been sent home, home learning packs. You will find copies of all the work in these packs in the documents section of this page.
The number one activity we would advise is READING. This helps the children across all subjects. There are links below to websites where you will find more reading activities for them to do.
In addition to these activities, remember there are lots more things you can do at home that aren’t linked to school – sharing stories, baking, pretending you’re a pirate, arts and crafts, even just sitting and watching a film together. Just have some fun!
We don’t have a set timeline for when schools will reopen so please ensure you have the school spider app downloaded to follow any updates.
Thank you for continuing support
Websites for activities.
All of these websites have some level of free access. Please DO NOT pay for any access.
www.purplemash.co.uk This is a site all the children are familiar with as we use it every week in our computing lessons. They will need their log in details which we sent home before school closure. We will be setting 2 to dos every day for the children to complete. They need to access these by clicking on the bell at the top of the page and clicking on the task. They will need to hand it in once completed. They can also explore everything on the site. There are activities for every subject. The children love purple mash and there is nothing on there they cannot have a go at (though some things will be above their level of learning).
