Coronavirus:  Time Capsules and A Book for Children

In the future, people will look back on the events of 2020 as a historical topic.  To help you and your families record how lockdown affected you and your daily routines we thought we would share this time capsule booklet with you.  There are two editions, one for the children and one for adults, we thought it would be a lovely opportunity for you to sit and discuss what is going on in the world at the moment as a family.  We have also included a pdf called ‘Coronavirus: A book for children’ which may help you to answer some of the questions that we are sure the children have.

 Home Learning

Parents and carers

Due to school closure we are providing a range of learning resources for children to access at home on Google Classroom.  It would be useful if your child could spend some time each day on English, Maths and Reading whilst also remaining active. 

Teachers will be uploading links and resources regularly so please continue to check Google Classroom each Monday.

Great Fire of London Workshop - Friday 31st January 2020

Fifty nine excited Year 1 children were transported back to 1666 as they took part in the History Off the Page Workshop last week. Through drama and practical activities they found out what it would be like to live through the Great Fire of London. The children will be using this experience in their History lessons. Thank you to the PTA for helping to fund this wonderful event.
