Here are a list of resources to support our students when learning from home.
Please check out Class Dojo regularly – www.classdojo.com or download the app. Activities are being uploaded every weekday including English, maths, science, wellbeing and plenty of fun stuff too!
Teachers can set individual tasks and parents, carers and students can upload work and send messages to the teacher to keep in touch.

Don’t worry! We are not expecting you to teach lessons but thought you may find these activities useful in offering a bit of structure. Baking a cake, doing some decorating, washing the dog, drawing, watching a documentary, gardening, playing games together or even having some down time all have value too!
