Home Learning

This page was used whilst school was closed to the majority of pupils during the lockdown of 2020 however parents may still find the various resources and links on here useful to use with their children at home.


During this unprecedented time, we are considering those children who will be learning at home.

Please use the links and suggestions on this page to guide and support your child's learning.

We will update this page regularly as necessary and appropriate.


Back to school relaxation tips

Relax Kids have created a really helpful guide for parents and children with some lovely calming ideas for children to support their mental health and well-being: 

Please have a look at the activities and tips as they may support you and your child as they transition back to school or continue to work from home. The Magic Mirror activity is a great way to start the day and remember that kindness is catching as it tells you in the poem at the end! We hope that these activities are useful and a similar guide for teachers will be used at school to support the children to relax during these unusual times.
