Home Learning

Our home learning is supported by two online platforms: Tapestry (EYFS) and Google Classroom (Key Stage One and Key Stage Two). The vast majority of activities and resources are published through these platforms.

During periods of closure, we were committed to providing live teaching and learning opportunities on a daily basis. From Monday March 08th, when school reopens to all pupils, all staff will return to working in school. Therefore, the online platforms will be utilised only for additional home learning opportunities and where children are isolating.  

Technical Help

All parents have been contacted with account details for both platforms. If you are having trouble logging in, please contact the school office and make your query FAO Mr Cole, who is our Digital Learning Coordinator. Alternatively, as EYFS Lead, Mrs Ingham may be better able to answer any queries with regards to Tapestry. 

This Google Classroom instructional video might be helpful viewing, if you are not familiar with the platform. 

The use of Tapestry in EYFS is well-embedded now but if you are new to the platform, please refer to the video below. 

Tapestry has also produced lots of other user guides on all aspects of the platform. This is available online. Use your browser to search for Tapestry Guide for Parents. You will be directed to numerous instructional videos such as this guide to Adding an Observation.  

Curriculum Letters

Our half-termly curriculum letters contain details of what your children are learning and also contain links to many other useful resources. Head over to the class pages to take a look.

Keep in Touch

Class teachers are willing to help if there is anything we can support with or do differently. A phone call to the school may be the best way to get in touch. Leave a message with the school office and teachers will call back as soon as they can. 

Alternatively, please feel welcome to email teachers directly. Please note, staff have full-time teaching commitments and they may not be able to respond immediately and these communications should take place between 09:00 and 17:00 on their working days 

If you do not have their email address, please send your query via the school office.
