To help support you and your child whilst the school is closed we have put together several home learning ideas for you. Please get in touch if you need any support, we are happy to help.
The online resources, which are listed below, are suitable for children in Reception, Y1 and Y2.
Some of the websites listed are those that wouldn’t normally be available from home but thanks to the kind generosity of the companies they have provided password details for the time of the school closure. The login details (if needed) are recorded alongside the website address.
Please see your child’s year group page for more specific learning ideas.
We know life is a juggling act at the moment so the philosophy of little and often is a helpful one to follow at the moment. If your child can practise their reading, some writing and some maths each day it will help them hugely at this time.
