We aim to provide parents with plenty of work to keep their children learning during the school closures. Work for pupils will be updated each Monday morning on this page. Please encourage children to complete a daily, manageable amount of the work: we have uploaded a very ambitious package and do not expect every child to complete every activity. We do not want to add any additional pressures and stress to family life; the most important thing is that families remain happy and healthy during this difficult time.

Our Reception children spend a greater amount of time at school learning through play within The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. We have uploaded two documents (see below) to assist the parents of Reception children. Although we will upload weekly activities, feel free to direct your Reception child’s learning through their interests and work towards the Early Learning Goals.

EYFS – Activities to Try at Home
EYFS – Early Learning Goals Parent and Carers Guide

There is no expectation to print out any of the sheets that we have uploaded. Each one can be downloaded and then accessed from a PC or laptop screen – please think about the environment before printing anything out.

There are many other websites that children could be using whilst at home (see document and suggestions below). Please do not overwhelm yourself and know that, if you are engaging in the learning set out on the school website, then you are on the right track.

Additional Websites

We also think that it is extremely important to make the most of family time at the minute which is why Key Stage 2 created a “100 things to do at home” sheet that children can work through (see document below).

100 Amazing Things for you to do at Home

We are still committed to the well-being, health and education of your child(ren). If you have any questions during the week, please feel free to email your child’s class teacher during normal school hours. Teachers’ email addresses are as follows:
