BREAKING NEWS: Hello everyone! 

We have missed you and we wanted you to know that we are still thinking of you, so we wrote you a song! Mrs Mackintosh wrote the lyrics, we all recorded at home on our own and then Miss Markaki put it together, all in hope to cheer you up and let you know that we are always here for you. Enjoy! Follow this link to view our tribute to you all. If you're having problems with the link then click here.

Whisper

We hope you are all well today. We wanted to let you about a new feature we have on our school website called Whisper. As you know, if you ever have a worry it’s always good to talk to a parent or other trusted adult. Sometimes that might mean you want to let someone in school know about your worry. If you’ve seen something upsetting or something unkind has  been said to you online or you have any other kind of worry you can click on this link to our e-safety page where you should follow the link shown below to report your worry. Your worry will be sent anonymously to a very small group of adults (our safeguarding team). You do not have to give your real name (unless you want to) and Whisper won’t show your e-mail address or mobile phone number to the person reading about your worry either. If you want to, you will be able to carry on the conversation online, again without having to reveal your e-mail address or mobile phone number.

BBC Bitesize and Oak National Academy are also brilliant resources to aid your child's home learning. Please click on the logos below to be directed to their sites.

Possible daily schedule for home learning

We think it is important to develop a clear routine at home to help keep home learning enjoyable and productive.  A simple timetable of the day’s activities will provide your children with a predictable structure that they can get used to.

Here is an example of how you could organise the day with your children:

Try breaking into chunks of learning i.e. 20mins reading, 30 minutes writing etc.
