Each year-group has provided a range of resources for children to continue learning from whilst self-isolating or if the school is closed. Click on the link below to visit the relevant page for your child’s year-group.
Below these DJS links are a range of online activities that can also be used by any year-group from Reception to Year 6. If your child is struggling with any of the activities, feel free to use those from another year-group.
We would also recommend that all pupils get involved in our school magazine project as part of their home-learning. We would also recommend this great Covid Journal that one of our parents (EA) produced.
SEND – This contains activities for pupils with SEND. You will need to choose appropriate activities for your child.
We would also recommend that the pupils keep in touch via their school email accounts (Click Log-Ins then Email on our website). If your child cannot remember their log in please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
