This webpage usually gives the sites that we use for pupils' weekly homework. In the light of the Current Coronavirus pandemic, with schools closing and families self-isolating and self-distancing, this is taking on an even more important role: i.e. helping to provide learning activities for pupils while they are home.
YOUR CHILD'S DAILY ROUTINE
As we are expecting schools to be closed for a long time, it is important to establish daily routines for children to keep them fit and healthy as well as giving them learning opportunities and hobbies. Rather than looking at this situation negatively, let's put a positive spin on things. It is a chance for pupils to take up a hobby at home, whether it be as simple as having a drawing pad and drawing! We are continually adding to ideas and websites on this page.
A daily routine involving English and Maths basics will help to keep your child's learning going. They have their whole lives ahead of them and we don't want them to be behind once this present situation is over.
If you require Logins for your pupils (most should know their logins or these will have already been sent home), please email the school on
