Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will all be aware, school is currently closed.

Each day, we will be uploading a series of work for the children to complete onto the school spider system. They are tasks that can be completed online or in the exercise books provided for the children.

Children have all login information stuck on the front page of their exercise book, and instructions for how to login to the specific websites.

We have put together a timetable for you so that you are able to see the types of tasks that will be set each day. Children will have access to all tasks at 9am and they can choose in which order they are completed: all children should be logging on daily to complete the tasks and submitting the work when it is completed. It is important that they take breaks in between the different pieces of work that they will carry out. 

There will be tasks that will require the children researching the topic by themselves and completing the task using the research. Please find a list of useful links that children can use to research or use at their leisure to support learning.

Research links - PE, Maths, English and wellbeing activities - free to use!

Fitness/wellbeing - The Body Coach Kids workout playlist - physical and brain activities to support with learning.

Thank you

Mr Gibson and Miss Miller
