                                                      Spring Term Lockdown 2021


Following the announcement by the Government, we have updated our website to include some links to support your child's education at home. Seesaw is the main point of contact for daily interaction between children and staff.


All resources which link to the learning on the timetable are available on Seesaw or paper packs, to collect from the school reception every Monday. Please return the pack for the previous week, for marking, at the same time as collecting the next pack.

Lockdown Learning Timetable 25th-29th January 2021

This is the timetable to work to during the time that we are all working online. It includes 4 hours of learning and lots of breaks. If you do not start at 9am, then you will need to adjust your working day.  We have suggested 30 minutes retrieval, responding to feedback and reading time. Then we have suggested 1 hour of English work (remember you can choose which English activities you want to do) and then a further hour of maths work.  We have allocated one and a half hours for curriculum learning which will be based on different subjects each week. 


Week beginning 4th January: Music, art and computing

Week beginning 11th January: History

Week beginning 18th January: History

Week beginning 25th January: Science

As well as a curriculum focus for the week, there will always be an option to learn the Language of the term ( this term it is Urdu), complete a sports activity and a PSHE activity.

Spring One



We had so much fun in our first term learning all about Alchemy Island and Space. We have sent all of your photos and work to Google and we await what they send us for next term. We have been told by Google that the area we will be looking at in the next half term will be titled Time Travellers!
