Learning at home- isolation and school closures

To aid anybody who is in a position where they must self-isolate, we will be providing our timetable for the week and some learning resources. These resources will enable your children to follow what we are doing in school whilst they are at home. This should help them to manage their time at home and also limit how much catching up they have to do once they can safely return to school.

Purple Mash Computing

We deliver our computing curriculum through a resource called Purple Mash. Your children can access their purple mash accounts from home, enabling them to access a variety of activities and resources to help them continue to develop their computing skills. To access Purple Mash, please use the link below.

Our first week back - Great British Biscuits

Year 6 spent our first week of school designing and learning to bake biscuits. First we surveyed both classes to find out what our favourite biscuits are (custard creams and jaffa cakes); we learned and wrote recipes for both these biscuits, and designed our own to celebrate our Evolving Britain topic.
