As a school, we have decided to upload new tasks for English and maths every morning - this is to maintain a sense of routine for the children (and teachers); to support children (and parents) from becoming overwhelmed in feeling that they need to complete lots of work in one sitting and to give children the sense that the teachers are still there for them.
All year groups also have a range of other activities to choose from, these are uploaded on Monday for the week. We are aware that not all parents will have access to a printer and so children should be able to complete the activities without needing to print. Any sheets are for reference only.
Please remember, that although your child's year group teachers are posting work on the website for each day, there is no obligation to complete all of this. Please do as much as you are able to because we do not want to put you or your child under any unnecessary pressure.
Teachers have been thrilled to see the super work that has been sent in from the children. We are beginning to create home learning galleries on the website for children to share their learning with their year group.
Please note that there will be no new online learning posted for the Easter Holiday period from Friday 3rd April to Friday 17th April. During this period, teachers will also not be checking or responding to the year group emails. We hope that you use this time to have a break from school learning and make the most of being at home.
Should you have any questions about the work set you can send an email to the class teachers of the relevant year group. Each year group has a unique email address to be used during this school closure.

Any general questions about school or the current closure should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
