School Closure Learning Packs

Here are the Home Learning Packs.  They are in PDF format.  The learning packs have been designed so that children do not have to access a digital device although we recognise that some of the tasks and activities could be completed with the use of the device.  If your child chooses to do so that is fine with us.  We just wanted to be able to cater for all children and we are aware that not all children have a device at home. 


We appreciate that this is an extraordinary way of learning for your child.  Please adapt the acticities if you believe they are too difficult or too easy for your child.  As you are aware teachers are currently working to ensure that the children of NHS workers are look after and are also beusy preparing work for your children when the next 4 weeks are up. 


Should there be any issues with accessing the home learning packs then you can contact If there is a way of solving the problem e.g. by making a task easier / harder then do so.  Emailing the above email address should be a last resort. 


Thank you for your support.  Stay safe.

Our theme for this half term, will be 


Dragons Vrs Knights- Who would win?


We will be learning about Knights, Dragons and Castles. We will be looking at what makes a knight- What did they wear? What did they do? We will also be looking at Dragons and what makes a dragon. At the end of our theme we will be visiting a Castle and having a medieval banquet.                                                  


We will also be looking at ways to develop our wellbeing by looking at mindfulness and relaxation


BY the end of this half term we hope to all be on our way to being ambitious, capable learners!


Our PE days are  Tuesday  and  Thursday. Your child will need a t shirt and shorts in a bag labelled with their name on both of these days. Please help the children to develop their independent skills by getting them to try and dress and undress themselves and to put on their own socks and shoes. Thank you.


Homework will  be sent home on  a Friday. The children will have a range of activities including spelling, keywords, reading and maths. This will need to be returned by a Wednesday.

Snack money is 30p a day and the children are able to take that to our Healthy eating shop run by Mrs Oaten at snacktime.


Tuesday 14th January we are going to Techniquest as they are having a special science workshop based on Dragons.
