Home learning resources for children
During the National lockdown, we will provide daily home learning resources for parents to use at home with their children in line with our contingency plan here
During lockdown, your child’s teacher will send work, videos and instructions to your contact email every day. Please make sure we have your correct contact details including email addresses.
The DfE guidance about supporting your child’s learning can be found here:
As well as videos and activities from you teacher, they will also use Purple Mash to set up specific tasks for your child to complete. Purple Mash resources are the ones we use in class, will and familiar to the children.
Parents/children will need to click on the ‘2Dos‘ tab to access the activities. When you have completed a task, your class teacher will be sent a notification. Then they will give you feedback through the Purple Mash platform.
It is important for you and your child to have reasonable expectations about the kind of learning activities you will be able to do at home together. This handy factsheet may be useful:
Contacting your teacher
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need support. The next few weeks will be difficult for parents and I want to make it clear that we are here for you. If you need support with learning, you can email your teacher on the year group email:
If you need to talk to a member of staff or need other support, please email or call the office.

Everyone should read to a grown-up every day. You might also like to hear the stories we have been reading.
Riley Knows He Can Read read by Charles Venn – We love the Riley books and we love reading. Enjoy this lovely story video, but make sure you enjoy reading your own books, too!
Sleep Well Siba and Saba read by Adjoa Andoh – Grant says “Just like Siba and Saba I always seem to be losing things. I hope I can stop worrying about lost things and look forward instead to the special things I will see, and even the lucky things I might find! This is one of my favourite stories read by one of my favourite story tellers.”

Remember that its important to strike a balance between time spent online on a computer, tablet or a mobile phone and participating in other activities. So think about some other things you could be doing throughout the day. These might include:
- reading a book
- playing a game
- solving a puzzle
- completing a jigsaw
- drawing, colouring, painting or weaving
