Online home learning
Throughout the Coronavirus crisis, children are all learning from home using the platform Google Classroom. Teachers post work daily and the children login to the classroom each morning so that they can access the learning for the day. There are always at least three different tasks to complete. When they have completed the work, they either hand it in or mark it as 'Done' and the teachers can then mark the work and give the children feedback.
There are also many links to excellent online resources which we are able to provide for our parents to use at home. You can access them from the list below:
