Home Learning

Please use these activities and resources to support your child's learning at home. We will update this page each week with different ideas and activities which reflect things we would have been doing in class. 

Please upload any activities your children complete to Tapestry and let us know how they get on. 

Here are some ideas. They are not compulsory but will help your child maintain a sense of routine and ensure they are staying on track!
