Learning at Home

Whilst school is closed for the majority of our children, weekly plans and resources created by teachers can be found on our school blog – click here.

Plans are updated at 4pm each Friday during term time.

These plans are to be used in ways that fit around your current family life. We do not expect all activities to be completed.

The most important thing is your child’s well-being. Routine, pacing and balance support this.

To support the development of motor skills  that help build up muscles used in writing, please  provide opportunities for your child to be active: Climbing frames, ball games and use of tools and small apparatus are beneficial. Click here for suggestions

When your child is practicing writing at home, please support correct letter formation as it is really hard for them to ‘unlearn’ a practiced method. Click here for letter formation
