Home Learning

UPDATE 24/03/20
 
As many of us attempted to juggle home-school and work yesterday, I would like to add this message. I understand that everyone is in a different circumstance with different time constraints and outside stresses and at this difficult time we do not want anyone to feel any extra pressure. Yours and your child's mental health is so important, and whilst we will continue to upload a daily maths and English activity, I want to stress that there is no expectation to complete all of these, every day. Whilst it is important to keep your child's brain ticking over, there are plenty of ways to do this without formal work. Think about cooking, gardening, washing the car, treasure hunts, board games, etc. Talk to your child, let them ask questions and give them problem solving activities. Let's make the best out of a bad situation. It's not often we are given such an opportunity to learn with our children. Treasure it!
 
 
 
We would like to take this opportunity to reassure parents of Year 3/4 children that we are here to support and help you over the next few weeks. As you are aware, this is unprecedented times and we do not have all the answers at this time. However, with this in mind, we will be updating this page regularly with activities and guidance for your children. In this first instance, we ask you to look under the Coronavirus tab and complete some of the home learning activities already set. More specific year group activities will follow. As always we thank you for your continued support. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us regarding any questions you may have. We are responsible for home learning and taking care of key workers' children, therefore, you may not have a response instantly. Please respect that we have families too and will only respond during the hours of 9-4.

Computing 
Create your own algorithms (set of precise instructions) to control the sprite (character) in scratch. It’s easy to start, just follow the instructions. Then when you feel confident, you can create pretty much anything. Year 4s and 3/4 AW you have already had a try at school, everyone else just have a go and follow the tutorial!
