Key Stage 1 2019 - 2020

Mr Murphy

How we are supporting you during the school closures

What is expected of the children while they are at home?

The packs that were sent out on the last day of school have many different ideas of activities linked to reading, writing, spelling, phonics, maths and science.  If you have misplaced this or did not receive one, we have uploaded a copy of each of the files included in the pack to the class page.

Please note that these packs are not compulsory and they will not be marked so please do not return them to school.  They are intended to help support you while your child is at home during this difficult time.

There is no expectation for you to teach the National Curriculum.  This has, for the time being, been suspended but, should you want to continue with some learning at home, as well as the packs we have provided, the following links will hopefully be helpful to you.
