Home learning - summer 2020

Working at Home


Just like many adults across the country, children will be working from home too. Whilst you and your family are self-isolating, it is important that all children engage with some learning. Working from home will be a new experience for you and presents new opportunities. We want you to enjoy this different experience with your family – it’ll be a chance to show off your learning outside of the classroom.

Your teachers have prepared some work for you to do at home: some activities are more traditional pen and paper based (where you’ll need to find a quiet place to work on your own) but other activities encourage you to work with your family and ‘learn’ in a different context.

We can’t wait to find out how you made the most of self-isolation. The Trick Box trick, ‘Sunny Side’ reminds us that life doesn’t always go to plan but finding solutions keep us positive.

Mental health and well being


We have set up a page to provide parents and children with support during this difficult time. Mrs Pestridge, our school counsellor, has created some great resources and added links to websites that can support you. She has also uploaded a blog during her 'self-isolation' time which provides advice and information and an insight into how she and her family are coping during their 14 days!
