In the event of a class/bubble closure, we will provide your child with a remote home learning package for the duration of the bubble closure. This will contain a mixture of online and offline activities. Details of this will be sent to you via Schoolcomms. A copy of it, along with the lesson materials your child needs, will be uploaded into Google Classroom for your child to access using their usual Google Classroom login details.
The year 1 weekly letter covers the homework for the week. Tasks may also be set on Google Classroom. Please follow this link to access parent information about end of year non-negotiables for English and Mathematics. Any support that you can give to your child to achieve these targets will be extremely valuable.
Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible, ideally at least three times a week. Reading books are changed on a Monday. Please ensure children bring their book bags in on this day and that their reading records are signed.
Big talk: Children are given a topic to discuss at home once a week and are expected to come to school with a sentence to share.
