Thank you for your continuing support with our home learning and I really appreciate the dedication that as parents and carers you have shown to your child's/children’s education.
Due to the planned changes, our staff have met this week to decide how we can continue to support the home learning from Monday 1st June and have decided on the following approach:
Instead of the daily tasks currently set by the teachers, due to the fact they will be in school when we open, the teachers will set weekly home learning linked to the BBC Bitesize home learning resources https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons . These will be organised on a weekly basis and we will aim to follow the structure of a school day. There is no need for printing and resources can be viewed on most devices, including mobile phones. We will update each year group for the following week on the Friday.

Home Learning Questions Answered
Home Learning Advice
Depending on the device you will use to access the home learning you may need to decide between the word document and the PDF. I have found that the PDF document works better on tablets. A good strategy is to look at the work the night before or before you start the day so that as a parent or carer you are able to support your child when they ask questions. I have found this very useful with my children. The week's work will be posted on the Friday for the following week.

Challenge for the Half Term 25.5.20
I would like the children to take part in the Joy of Moving initiative established by the EFL. The Joy of Moving booklet has been saved under the year groups and provides lots of ideas about being active over the half term. Beyond this booklet, you can find many more games that your family can do on the Joy of Moving website - https://www.joyofmovingresourcehub.co.uk/
Thank you for your continuing support, Mr Hawes
