 Suggested Organisation of Home Learning

We have come to the final week of our Potions topic, we hope you have enjoyed it. The next one is a great topic too!  laugh You are all doing so well with your home learning - we're extremely proud of you all!! Keep the work and photos coming into news@ and the blog. We love to see what you're getting up to each day. Make sure you've been to the Video Centre to see our messages for you. smiley I wonder what you'll get up to this week, we can't wait to see!




These are continuing unsettling times for us all.  Each child will respond to these changes in their own way. If your child is particularly affected at any time, please do not feel concerned that they aren't able to follow the timetable for learning. We are providing learning opportunities for you to access in a way that suits you. There is no expectation that all work must be completed. The most important thing is that all children feel safe and as calm as possible. We want them to keep their minds 'healthy and active', in whatever way they can best achieve that. Please find some resources to help on our Fun and Wellbeing page.


As always, we wish you all our very best.  You may contact us using the email account. We will respond as soon as possible within our normal hours. 


 Every good wish,


 Mrs Townsend and Miss Davison



We will be regularly updating our home learning provision, please check each page to keep up to date.


Below is a suggestion of how to organise your child's home learning- It is only a suggestion.



As you start each session of home learning, just remind yourself of some important messages we use in class. 'Put your learning head on,' 'sit in your learning position,' 'how can you solve the problem?' and most importantly 'are you proud of yourself and your work?'
