Online Learning at home

All year groups at school have provided work for children to do at home. All children have been provided with a login for Google classroom. There are videos below to support parents and children with how to access the classroom and the work. Children can complete the work on paper or in an exercise book. There is no need to print anything off. Additional work will be uploaded everyday so please encourage children to complete some work each day.

Looking after yourself, looking after your children

There is a lot of uncertainty around the current COVID-19 outbreak, particularly given that
the situation is constantly developing and the information about the virus remains
incomplete.
Understandably, this is causing a lot of worry and anxiety for people. Having children and
young people at home, often when people are trying to work themselves, adds another
layer of stress. It is therefore important to not only consider our physical health during such
challenging times, but also to pay attention to our mental health. It is normal to feel
worried, stressed and anxious when we are faced with uncertain situations, but the sooner
we acknowledge and learn to take care of our mental health, the healthier and better
equipped we’ll be to cope with the situation were having to face.

Agents for Change

Our Agents for Change, enjoyed their presentation evening last month, the evening celebrated the hard work they have put in over the Autumn Term. The work they undertook in school, the assemblies and kindness tree, were singled out by the staff who commended them. The did us proud with their speech to a packed room. They have been shining stars in the school and will continue their hard work on making our school a kind and equal place for all. The awards and certificates they were presented with are true reflection on how hard they work.
