Remote learning is put on Seesaw/Google Classroom. Teachers look at at their Seesaw pages regularly so please encourage your child to use this communication tool and to post their work on there. Teachers can then mark this work using written comments, spoken comments or ‘likes’.
For more information, please see our guidance document:
The children also have a log in for Purple Mash and Times Tables Rock Stars, which can be accessed at home, and we have also purchased a subscription to White Rose Maths, which means your child can watch a lesson and then use their White Rose Maths Book to record their work https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning
The DfE has developed a range of resources to further support schools and families during this time. Just click the pictures below to go to these sites.
Each week in school, we use a resource called Picture News for one of our Collective Worships. It is a super resource, based on recent news and always has one big question to make us all think. Every week, with our school newsletter, we send home the question and a photograph to inspire discussion, together with a link to further resources.
Click here for the Picture News Learning at Home resources. The Picture News website contains an assembly each week which your child can access and there is a facility for your child to send a response in too https://www.picture-news.co.uk/discuss
Each week during National Lockdowns we also watched the Yo-Yo Collective Worship.
Music Your child can use their usual chrome book log in to access a new music programme we purchased this year through York Music Hub. It is called Charanga Yumu. https://www.yorkmusichubdigital.org.uk/site/log-in/ Here they can find an array of activities to develop their music skills (and also their maths!). Look out for Tune the Tables, Music World and a weekly music lesson too.

We surveyed our parents after the first lockdown in March 2020 and again in March 2021. Here are the results of the second survey and a comparison of the two surveys, collated by our school governors, showing the improvements made and also highlighting some areas to continue to develop as we carry on striving to be the best we can be even in these strange times. Many thanks to all parents who completed the survey.
