Remote Learning

In the event of school or class closures for any reason, please access remote learning for all year groups below. 


Please click on your child's year group's star tab below to access each week's PowerPoint of learning. We have made a range of activities available for children to complete, with a focus on maths, reading and phonics and also learning related to class topics. We have also included a mixture of practical and written activities to give you and your child a choice of what to complete.


We have also provided a link to the Oak National Academy for additional learning opportunities.


To further support you and your child's learning during this time, included on these pages are also a selection of useful links and activities that children can complete at home including Sumdog, BBC Bitesize, White Rose Maths and RWI Phonics. 


As always we want to promote the importance of reading to and with your child, so If you are unable to do much whilst school is closed, maybe because you or your child/ren are ill, or you are still having to work, we would urge you prioritise reading over any of the other learning activities.


Please don’t feel under any pressure to complete all the activities, you know your own children and are free to select the activities that you think they would most enjoy or benefit from. There is no expectation that any work is handed in at the end of the closure period, however staff will be available for daily feedback via their teacher email addresses. 


Please read the remote learning policy below for more information about how learning and communication will be organised during this closure period.
