In light of recent events, our school is now closed until further notice. As we are unsure about how long this will continue, we have created this page to provide extra learning support for the children who are currently learning from home.
As you are aware, we have sent home printed resources for those who are unable to have online access; if you still are unable to gain access, please email your class teacher and we will find a way to get more resources to you.
Here we will provide some extra learning opportunities in relation to our class book of the week and any upcoming celebrations that can be enjoyed from home (e.g. Mother's Day or Easter). We will have access to our emails (attached below) at anytime, so please do get in contact if you have any further enquiries.
We hope that you all stay safe and take care of the ones around you!
Miss Snipp and Mrs T
Please keep uploading all your child's lovely activities to Tapestry as and when you can so that we can all enjoy and be inspired by your creative home learning! Thank you!
TOP TIPS ON HANDWASHING:
- Count for 20 seconds as you wash your hands after holding someones hands, after you've been to the toilet, after handling animals and before you eat!
- Sing happy birthday twice to ensure hands are fully cleaned.
- Follow the instructions above for guidance.
Here are some great videos to make kids aware of the importance of washing hands and for a gentle explanation to the Coronavirus.
