Dear Parents

This week is children's mental health week. Place to be have resources for this week. Have a look to see what is on offer -use it if interested. Click the link on the picture if that does not work try this:

If you need any support or have any questions, please email me at



If you can’t access any of the online learning or what a break from online learning please call school and arrange to collect a paper pack.


Please also use this opportunity to support your child with skills that are not within the National Curriculum and can be done as a family, such as: 


Cooking - great for incorporating maths: weight, capacity, cooking times, temperature, addition, subtraction etc.  There are some simple recipes on Teams and in the paper packs to collect from school. 

Cleaning - they learn to contribute to household, skills they'll use the rest of their lives, learn to be responsible and learn to value of their environment and home.

Family time - go out for a daily walk, talk about what you can see in the environment, read signs etc. This is great for physical and mental health and also helps to improve your child's language development. Play card or board games if you have any at home. Make up your own games and write down the rules of how to play it.


We'd love to see pictures of any extra curricular activities that you do!


Take care, stay safe and we hope to back together in the classroom soon.
