Home Learning

Teachers have sent home learning packs and set work initially for a period of two weeks. If the closure is longer, more work will be added.

Year R – Please upload any work or messages for your teacher on your tapestry page.

Year 1 and 2 – To help your children with their home learning and to improve the home-school relationship in these tricky times, we are in the process of extending the Tapestry package used in Reception to the Year 1 and Year 2 children.

Here is a free book explaining Covid-19 and social distancing in a child friendly manner.
