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.

  • reading a book
  • playing a game
  • solving a puzzle
  • completing a jigsaw
  • cooking
  • drawing, colouring, painting or weaving
  • resting
