Home learning 

Below are some ideas for over the period of time that the children will be at home. Please also use the ideas that are under the home learning tab as well. We hope this is helpful. 

Please look often as the blog will be updated every Monday  


Ways to keep in contact with teachers and friends. 

Tapestry - upload pictures of what you have been doing for teachers to leave a comment. Also we have been busy making learning videos, stories and songs for the children for you to use on tapestry. 

Purple mash -  tasks have been put on for you to do and teachers can leave comments. We now have a class blog on purple mash for the children to see each others work and write messages to each other and their teachers. This is at the top of the page under sharing - shared blogs- sparrows blog. 

You can always email if you want guidance on these platforms or would like some information about any homeschool aspect. My email is stated above. 

Summer Reading Challenge - Please visit the HOME LEARNING page for details

Reading books : We cannot change books at the moment but if you follow the linkOxford Reading Tree you can join for free and choose ebooks to read which are book banded in the same way as the books at school

Please may all parents make sure they have downloaded the school jotter app for school. As this is how school will be sending important notices and information. I don't want you to miss out on any important information during this time. 

To download please go to your phones App Store 

search school jotter 

download (should have a logo that's a green pencil) 

type in the school name 

Make sure you have the notifications turned on (this is great as you get any notices like a text straight to your phone) 

Kind regards
