Class Pages (with Home Learning)

COVID-19 HOME LEARNING WILL BE REGULARLY ADDED HERE!

 

All home learning work is optional, but highly recommended. There are lots of education resources on this page, as well as ideas to help with the boredom of isolation. Feel free to pick and choose what you use. All worksheets uploaded do not need to be printed, but can be used as a guide on a screen and then questions can be done on a separate piece of paper.

 

Please keep checking for updates - especially the daily videos!

Stay Active, Keep Moving

 

A healthy lifestyle leads to a healthy mind. Try to keep you children (and yourselves) as active as possible during the school closure. The current government guidelines recommend that children are physically active for at least 60 minutes a day. A walk, a run, a cycle or scoot are great options, but remember, no close contact with anyone.

'Get Active, Keep Moving' Challenge 14 - Kung Fu Fighting

This week's 'Get Active, Keep Moving' Challenge.

Have a go at this dance of Kung Fu Fighting. This was one of the favourite songs from Musical Theatre Club's show The Alley that had to get cancelled due to the shutdown.

Make sure you send me your pictures of you having a go so I can share it on the website to inspire others to keep active.
