Additional Home Learning Resources

While the main learning resources for your child will be on their class pages, we know some parents are looking for additional resources to help fill the time.

Please do not feel obligated to use these resources.  In this worrying time, it is just as important to spend time with your child, and even simple things like cooking together already use skills that they will need – maths to work out quantity, reading the recipe.

*NEW (23/04/20)* Huw Thomas, the Director of Education for the Diocese of Sheffield has produced an assembly for the pupils to watch, with some things that they can try at home.

*NEW (23/04/20)* Active Fusion, who support us in providing PE for our pupils have also provided us with some PE activities (adaptable for all age groups) that can be done at home – please see the letter and PE Parent & Family Pack.

In addition, there are a number of daily, live activities available for children to use – we have collated a few of the most appropriate resources here – Daily Live Activities

Please note that these are all external sites, and while the school has reviewed these for suitability as at publishing date, we are not responsible for the content as this will change daily.
Parental supervision is recommended with all internet activities.  Please let us know if any site appears inappropriate.
