Wider Reopening of School from 1st June- Information for Parents

As a Nursery and Infant School  the return on 1st June of further pupils is only for those in  Nursery and Reception.

The planned June 1st in-service training day for teachers has been cancelled and the  term will start on 1st June  (not the 2nd as stated on the school calendar). 

We have a dedicated area of the website to share all information about the wider reopening of school.  This area now includes videos from the staff for the Reception and Nursery children who are returning to school

 

You can access this area by clicking on  the calendar image here or via the menu 'Wider Reopening -1st June"  .  We will continue to update this area of the website with practical information for children who are returning/ have returned to school. We will also use this area to share information about Year One and Two, when it becomes available.

We have also now added menus for each of the groups of children who are returning.

Supporting your child's learning at home

At the current time the home learning pages will continue to be updated for all year groups and weekly plans will be provided for those families in al year groups that wish to use them.

From the 11th May our new home learning theme will take you on a trip around the world.

Each week we are looking at a different country from a different continent. There will be different challenges and activities linked to the chosen country that cover different areas of the curriculum. To make it easier the ideas can be used with all age groups in the school

These learning ideas can be found in the Weekly Planning Menu.

We understand that some of you may want to follow your own learning plan  so our website contains  a range of  materials  that may be a solution for each of you during these difficult times.  We will continue to add a range of resources that you can choose from:

  •  Home learning Overview- our ethos for home learning together ith the latest government advice
  • Weekly planning by teachers -with our new home learning theme A Trip Around The World! 
  • Flexible ideas and resources
  • Emotional wellbeing resources- updated regaularly as we believe every child's well being is of prime importance at this time 
  • Support for Children with SEN - including appropriate videos by staff
  • Online resource links 
  • Stories read by our school staff
  • Videos by our teachers to support you and your children  ( these can be used alongside the weekly plans or as standalone sessions) 
  • Help! becuase teaching children at home is not always easy

 

All our learning ideas can be found in our simplified menu (three lines on the top left of the home page on a mobile device) .  Links to recently updated pages appear on the side of the page on desktop computers or at the bottom of the page on mobile devices.
