Home Learning

If your child is required to self-isolate due to Covid-19 please find below a range of activities and resources that you can access and do at home. Please see the homework grid and activities for your child's class - there is lots on there to keep you busy and some tasks can be done more than once. You can also practise spellings and phonics as well as reading.

In the event of your child's bubble being closed to self isolate more information will be provided relating to online learning and lessons. 

There are some links below to websites that offer free activities as well as some apps you can download.
