Remote Home learning
Schools have been asked to make plans for providing remote education if needed. This means that if your child needs to stay at home, due to shielding or self-isolation, we will support you to continue learning.
On this page you will find links to general teaching ideas if it is just your child/children needing to learn from home.
If it is a whole year group bubble, click on the year group link to find out more about the remote learning pack.
We do not intend that children spend all of their time at home learning from screens but the Internet has lots of useful resources. Classteachers will be sending home new exercise books for you to use with your child. This could be used for: writing stories, writing a diary of what you get up to, writing some facts about things that you learn, or completing maths problems.
If you have any questions you can contact your child’s classteacher by emailing the office email@example.com

Children in Year 1 and 2 also have access to Purple Mash:
Classteachers have sent home children's usernames and passwords. When you log in to Purple Mash there is a button called '2do' if this has a number next to it that means that a classteacher has assigned a specific task for your child. As well as these tasks feel free to complete any of the activities that your child is interested in from the website.
Here are also a further 25 ideas that you could do at home.
Here are some ideas for writing that you could do in the exercise book.
