What to do if you do not fall into the "key worker" category

If you do not fall into the key worker category than we are unable to accept your child at school during this time. However, we sent out a letter on Friday 20th March to all parents who this may apply to. The letter outlined what work we had set children and what to whilst the school is partially closed.

Year 1/2: English and Maths homework has been set. We would like to encourage all children to do 1-2 sheets per day. In Art the children have been looking at patterns in nature. Encourage your children to do observatioal drawings in both pencil and colour. We have also provided Science worksheets to be completed - we are currently looking at plants. All children have also been provided with a log in for SumDog to assist with their English and Maths. We would also recommend reading for 10 minutes per day and practice their timetables.

Year 3/4: English and Maths homework has been set. We would like to encourage all children to do 1-2 sheets per day. There is also a History project due to conclude our topic on Anglo-Saxons. In Art the children have been looking at Insects. Encourage your children to do observatioal drawings in both pencil and colour. If they are feeling creative, they can also create their own 3D insect! In Science, we are currently looking at electricity. I would like all children to make a poster on how to stay safe in the home around electricity. All children have also been provided with a log in for SumDog to assist with their English and Maths. We would also recommend reading for 10 minutes per day and practice their timetables.

Year 5/6: Please see detailed letter sent out from Mrs Hill. This breaks down the homework required into weekly blocks alongside additional projects.
