School closure Home Learning

Just because the school is closed does not mean that learning has to stop!


Story competition

While school is closed children can write a story and hand it in to their class teachers when they return, we’ll organize some prizes for the best story from each class! Younger children can write whatever they can but we expect older children, Year 3 upwards, to check their spelling and hand in the neatest version possible. They can use a computer if they wish. For Year 5 and 6 children, we expect the story to be written in clear paragraphs and to use correct punctuation for any direct speech.


Creative competition

Children could also draw or paint a picture, make a model or record a film, or anything else creative! If they bring it into school when the school reopens we’ll share their creations with the other children and award some prizes.



One of the best things that children can do in the school closure period is enjoyed books! We’d like children to read every day or share a book with an adult or older child every day. There is a link to some e-books below.


Support for Learning

You can contact your child’s teacher using the e-mail address below. The teachers will only read and respond to these during normal school opening times. If you do not have internet access then we can arrange some paper copies of things to do that can be collected from the school site. We might also be able to provide some resources in the form of pencils and paper. Please contact your child’s teacher if you require this help.
