HOME LEARNING LETTER TO PARENTS  - APRIL 2020

HOME LEARNING

Whilst schools are closed it is preferable that you continue to support your child in their learning journey. Home learning packs were made available to all students before we closed, we have uploaded key information to the class pages, and we are utilising an app called Seesaw to communicate with the children and provide them with tasks to complete.

On this page you will find an example timetable, however if you have made your own that works for you then feel free to contine with your own routine. Your day should include a balance of academic time, free time, include some exercise and mealtimes to feed your body and ensure your children are focussed on their learning.

We are also celebrating our home learning on this page with our home learning gallery, which you will find below.
