During the lockdown home learning will be delivered through our on line learning journey tapestry. All year groups will have two learning tasks to complete each day. The teachers will deliver lessons using short video clips which will explain the learning and model what is expected. Some tasks will be differentiated. We hope to deliver engaging and fun tasks in this way. Children can then post back their videos and photos of completed work and the teachers will be able to give the children feedback. Please note that work has been divided up between the teachers so children will have tasks set by all our staff.
Here are some free books explaining Covid-19 and social distancing in a child friendly manner.
