From September 2020, any home learning will be communicated to individuals on a case by case scenario. Children who are isolating and require home learning will have full support from school to ensure their education continues until they can return to school. Children in Year 1-6 will use Google Classroom as their online learning platform. Children in Reception, will use Tapestry and padlets as their main communication tool.
We appreciate that these are unusual times so please make tasks as fun as possible – use photos, art, IT, crafts etc. – to engage your children in their learning. If you have any further questions or queries in relation to the work set then please contact your child’s class teacher on the emails provided in the weekly newsletters.
Remote Learning during the current 2021 lockdown
We are very excited to have individual Active Learn accounts set up for each child in school. Your child’s class teacher will set allocated tasks and assign them to pupils individually. Please click on this link to take you to the Active Learn login page. From this page you will be able to login in and view your child’s allocated activities. We have also made a parent “How To” guide to help you navigate your way around the new learning platform. It has been emailed out to all parents personally but click here for the hard copy. If you have any difficulties with Active Learn then please email your child’s class teacher directly and they will be able to help.
Would you like to make a record of your current experiences and look back on them in years to come?
