Dear children and parents, please have a look at the home learning document below, which details the tasks for the week ending April 3rd. There are also two other documents needed for the week, which are located below on this page. Have a good week, and don't forget to follow us on Twitter!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

- All of the children have received a username and password for this website and a brief letter of how to access the online games and activities that are on there. 

- Teachers have not yet set which activities they want your child to access, so for now we would like them just to explore the games that they wish to try. To do this click on the 'subjects' heading on the side menu. 

- Then choose English, maths or science and try games either at the age they are working at or below to build some confidence to begin with.

- Once your child's teacher has set any classwork for them to do on here they will let you know via Twitter and their year group page. This will be by the Easter holidays to enable your child to have time to work through their home learning packs first.

 

- If you have problems connecting please contact via email to the office which will be forwarded to me so I can sort any issues. 

 

Thanks, Mrs Perry.

TOP TIP!
Your child has recently received a 'Global password'. Every child in education in Worcestershire has one so that they can access the 'Worcestershire Learning Gateway'. This gateway allows your child to have free access to many programmes including; Education City, Purple mash and Espresso Learning. Please take advantage of these great resources with your child as they are great learning resources to be enjoyed at school and home.

 

For more information please contact Mrs Perry.
