Making Learning Irresistible

Home Learning 2020-2021

Long-term school, class or bubble closure (10 days or more):

This type of closure would be in the case of being guided by 'Public Health England' to close due to local risk levels or in-house positive COVID-19 results. 


Printed home learning packs are available from outside of school every Monday from 8am. We will provide deliveries for any families who are unable to collect.


Please find teaching videos in our Video Resource Centre (under the 'Children' tab). To submit learning to teachers, please use Tapestry.


Teachers will provide feedback to their class using feedback videos. These will help to inform the planning for the following week. 


A daily live 'Smile Time' session is provided for all year groups. Parents should have received an invite to this meeting via e-mail.


If your child is unable to access online learning due to a lack of technology, please contact

Foundation Stage Bubble Closure- Day 1 and 2 (22.6.21/23.6.21)

In the event of bubble closure a temporary home learning pack will be made available whilst the full home learning provision is organised.


The full home learning provision will be made available to you by midday on 23.06.21. A zoom link for smile time at 9.30am beginning on 23.06.21 will be sent to you.  


Some printed home learning packs will be available for your collection from 9am. Foundation Stage children should be isolating and cannot come to school to collect home learning packs. 

Please be aware that all of the above home learning is subject to the class teacher being well. Should the class teacher be unwell, we will endeavour to provide the best home learning provision that we can with the available resources. 

PE at Home

We have provided a range of foundation subject activities to broaden the horizons of the pupils. These should be used in addition to home learning packs and could be done collaboratively with siblings. 


In addition, teachers have directed children to Oak National Academy online lessons for foundation subjects.

Additional Resources to support Home Learning:

The live lessons are broadly in line with the in-school curriculum.


Oak National Academy

These lessons will teach the same skills that are taught in school.


If your child is still learning phonics, use the Ruth Miskin online lessons.

Oxford owl provide a free e-book library. Please ensure your child continues to read on a daily basis as they would in school. Asking them questions and giving them activities to do related to the book will help them continue to progress.
