Supporting your child with Home Learning
While we are not in school teachers will be setting work regularly for children to access on interactive platforms.
Purple Mash will be used to set work which teachers can mark remotely. Children have got passwords for this. Use the link here
Children also have access to a number of online maths and literacy websites which they should have passwords for.
Children who regularly use Lexia have passwords and this service can continue to be accessed from home. Use the link here
Look at class web pages for class based work as well as the usual home learning activities and up to date spellings.
If you would like support in accessing anything online or would like clarification of any passwords please contact the office or email us on email@example.com and we will help. Please be patient with us as we will be helping a lot of parents at this time!

Need some structure?
Timetabling your day will be really important while you are working from home. It is easy for the day to become lost, and hard to keep track of what you have been doing.
Click below for a sample timetable that might work with your family. You do not have to use it, but it is there to help you structure your day if you wish.
Having trouble managing snacking?
This is a difficult issue at the best of times but with everyone at home so often it could become a real challenge.
Try setting up a 'snack shop' This helps children understand what they are eating and use money in a real life situation. (You can always use play or fake money if that makes life easier!)
