Hello to our children and their parents/carers!
We hope you are all well and staying safe.
For the next few weeks we will be uploading a weekly timetable that is a suggestion of a routine you might like to follow at home with your child. This timetable is very similar to our timetable at school so we feel it will help your child to have a similar structure to their day.
Each week we will upload the timetable which will include a 'Key text' that will be the focus, along with different activities you can complete with your child at home. These activities and links will be displayed underneath the weekly timetable so please check this as it gives you a daily breakdown of activities for each day.
We hope you will find this useful and we have tried to make the activities as fun as possible as well as being easy to access. If you have any questions or require any help, please feel free to email us:
We will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Jones and Mrs Thomas
It has felt very strange this morning not putting on our P.E. kits but we all hope you are keeping well and safe. We will miss you incredibly over the next few weeks but hope you enjoy spending your time with your families and carers and we look forward to seeing you very soon. I have put together some suggested activities for you to work through in your own time but most of all make sure you enjoy yourselves. Please feel free to take pictures of your activities or bring them in when we see you again so we can put them in your Learning Journeys and talk about the fantastic things you have been doing.
We have created a suggested timetable for you to follow with your child at home over the next few weeks. We have also included for each focus time suggested activities and resources you could use with your child.
We will update a new list of resources and activities for you to use over the weeks.
We hope you and your child enjoyed this weeks activities. As you are aware the next two weeks would have been the Easter Holidays. Due to this no formal work will be posted on this page. We do however understand that some parents/carers may want some ideas to help entertain your child. So we have created '50 things to do in isolation' you can do as many or as little of them over the next two weeks. It would be lovely if you kept some record or recount of your achievements to share with us when we are back in school.
I hope your first week not being at school has gone okay and you are all safe and well. Here is another week of suggested activities and resources. On Wednesday 1st April you can access a live broad cast of 'We're Going on an Easter Egg Hunt' using the link on the Set Play activity sheet.
If any of the resources do not work they can be found on twinkl.

Thank you for your continued support.
