Remote learning - The school is currently only educating on site critical worker children and additional children identified by the Dfe as needing support. The rest of the school will be remote learning and every child must be engaging in education. 

 

Remote lessons are being held year 1-6 on Microsoft teams where you can access a range on resources including teacher videos, this should be the primary way of studying remotely. Nursery and Reception will be taught through Tapestry and this should be your main teaching method. Should this be problematic for whatever reason then a paper learning pack can be supplied, please speak with your teacher and the school office if this is needed. 

 

In addition to the resources above we also have a fantastic selection of enrichment lessons to chose from on our website. You can get arty and create your own nature masterpiece, or why not find out how to make slime in our science section, you can even take a vacation on our geography page and then finish the day with our daily story read by Mr Tewes. We hope you enjoy
