Now that school has opened to all children in September, we are hoping, of course, for children to be in school learning and enjoying the curriculum activities on offer. However, we are of course still living in difficult and uncertain times and despite all the protective measures we put in place in school, there are times when children may be self isolating due to Covid 19 guidance and therefore unable to attend school.
In this situation, we are ready and prepared to offer your child home activities and support to enable them to carry on learning and developing their skills.
Once school is aware that children are officially self-isolating, parents will be contacted and a home learning package set up. This will include access to daily activities on the Purple Mash online learning platform, activities on Spelling Shed and a weekly reading book on the Rising Stars Reading Planet online platform. Children will also be sent a paper based learning pack, which will provide daily work for two weeks. If a whole class bubble has to close, there will also be daily learning challenges on the class blog page. Regular feedback from class teachers will be given for work completed on Purple Mash and paper based or craft activities can be photographed and emailed to the year group email addresses below; teachers will then view these and again give feedback.
Should a whole class bubble close, then children/parents will receive a weekly phone call from the staff within their class. Should individual children be isolating, they will receive a weekly phone call from one of our Higher Level Teaching Assistants.

If you look under the main heading Parents on this website you will find the heading Useful Links to Learning - Home and School; this page includes links to educational websites which are ideal for children within our age range and the links for Purple Mash and Spelling Shed (including guides of how to use them). It also includes information for Rising Stars, Reading Planet (where you can access the online reading books).
