Learning at home

Whilst our children are at home, their teachers will still be working hard to help them keep learning and make progress.  Class Teachers will be setting them a range of activities to complete using the Purple Mash platform. 

Children will be receiving their individual log-on's on the 19/3 and 20/3 and staff will be setting them challenges from the week commencing the 23/3. 

Pupils should log on daily and complete the "2do's" that they have been set.  To access their page, click on the image below:

 

 

There are some very helpful, clear instruction videos to help you and your child navigate the site and complete the teacher-set '2dos' here.   Watch them to find out more. 

In addition, teachers may also put some ideas for work or post a video message to the children on their class page so please keep an eye on there too.

We will also be sharing daily links from our friends at Pacesetter Sport, who'll be sharing some videos to help our children keep their bodies and minds healthy.

Whilst we hope that this work will help our children to continue learning whilst they are at home, unfortunately, as we're sure you'll appreciate, it cannot replicate the Quality First Teaching that we provide in our daily teaching.   For the benefit of their well-being, we advocate children also spend time away from the computer: playing board games, reading books, playing in the garden, making dens - all fabulous learning opportunities!
