Home Learning


20th April 2020
We hope you all had a chance to relax and enjoy the sunshine over the Easter break.
We miss all the children being in school and staff will continue to add activities in the year group files on our Home Learning page via our website.
Further ideas for home learning can now be accessed on BBC Bitesize 

Making a Rainbow


In school yesterday Mrs Johnson, Mr Bianchi and Miss Young worked with Charlie and Amelia. Mr Bianchi did Joe Wicks PE session first, then we explored outside, looking for signs of spring. In the afternoon Charlie and Amelia painted a rainbow, then found collage materials to match the colours in the rainbow. The children also learned to sing the song using the Makaton symbols. The rainbow is displayed in Mrs Johnson’s classroom.

Stay safe.
