Virtual Learning

We miss you all so we’ve made you a video

Welcome to our Virtual Learning page. This page will be the place to come during the school closure to find learning resources and home learning tasks set by your teachers. The format of the page may change as time goes on and we get more resources and decide on better ways to lay things out so please bear with us!

On this page you will see our Virtual Learning Timetable. There is a link underneath it to a pdf version for easy printing.

Make a Difference Time
What can you do to make a positive difference to other people today? For example, set the table for tea, cook together, hoover, help to wash up, empty the dishwasher, write a letter or phone grandparents. This is down to your family expectations and may need some help initially to example what to do and in setting up a rota.
