Good afternoon everyone,


In light of the challenging times we are facing, Mrs Garthwaite and I wanted to offer our help by reminding you all of some of the useful resources you can access at home.  In addition to the pack we have already sent out and the list of resources uploaded below, we hope these additional links will aid you when trying to provide home learning and some routine to your child’s day.   



Please continue to use ttrockstars to practise your timestables

WhiteRose Maths Home Learning is now  live.    There is a short video related to our next unit on Fractions.  At the moment, the answers are below and the activities are printable.  So after Easter, once you have completed the resources in the pack, please take a look at this resource to support your learning.

All you need to do is register and begin reading for free.

School closure 

As the school is closing on Friday, we have created paper based learning packs which are available from the school office if your child has not already received it.    In addition to this, there are many online resources/ideas which can be used to help support your child's learning during their absence from school.  Below are a number of websites, suggested games etc listed in word documents for you to access.  We also encourage the children to log onto TT Rockstars to practise their times tables (if your child has forgotten their log in, please email your child's teacher or contact the office).  

We appreciate how difficult this situation is and will continue to keep posting updates to support and assist you and your child.
