Year 1 will continue to use Tapestry to share learning with parents for the first part of the year, they will then transfer over to 'google classroom' which will give every pupil their own individual log in. Please email the Year 1 team if you need any help with Tapestry (or google classroom once that has been rolled out to Year 1).

remote education for year one during lockdown

As we once again find ourselves having to close the school to the majority of our pupils, it is vital that we work together in order to ensure that your children can continue to progress along their learning journey. This time, we have the advantage of using now-established online learning platforms, with which all children and most parents are now familiar.

For children in Key Stages 1 and 2, learning will be set on our Google Classrooms, as has been the case for their homework and isolation learning throughout the Autumn term. Both Tapestry and Google Classrooms can be accessed on any internet-enabled device and there is no expectation that children print learning materials at home.

Please see our home learning letter sent out 4th January via Parentmail for details of how to access these learning platforms. A copy can also be found on our Lockdown Advice Page

If you have any difficulties in accessing our learning platforms, please get in touch to see if we can help you. Although printed learning packs are available on request if we are unable to find a way to get you connected these cannot fully replicate the online learning provision, which is the most comprehensive and interactive learning that we can offer remotely, and we therefore ask that you access the learning online if possible.

additional activities for all ages

Below you can find some additional home learning activities suitable for most ages that may be of interest to our families.


Alongside the work we have set as a school, if you have internet access and your child has the use of a tablet or laptop they might like to join in with the online lessons on offer at the Oak National Academy or BBC Bitesize. Follow the links below to try these out.
