Wellbeing Support

Hello everyone

With the news this week that all children will not be returning to school until at least 8th March it is more important than ever that we all look after our wellbeing.

As I'm sure you will have seen, next week we have organised our 'Wellbeing Wednesday'.  This is chance for children, families and staff working at home and in school to spend time thinking about and looking after their own mental health.  We hope everyone both enjoys the day and also finds it beneficial.  Our aim is that their will be activities and support which you may choose to continue with in the longer term. 

We are regulalry updating the wellbeing page on our website which has several resources and links which you may find supportive.

Take care and have a great weekend!

When coming on to site, we ask all adults to maintain social distancing and, unless exempt, to wear a face covering.  Thank you for your support.
Games to support maths fluency

One of the key elements of success in mathematics is confidence.  Some children lack this confidence due to not having secured fluency skills.  A quick recall of addition and subtraction facts within 10 and increasing fluency in times tables gives children the platform to develop their understanding of different concepts.  Without having a bank of 'known' fluent facts, children will find maths much harder.
The maths team have put together a range of games to play at home.  These will support your child in building up these skills.  The aim is to develop their fluency skills as an incidental by-product of enjoying the games.
Remote Learning
We email out to all parents the remote learning resources for the following week on a Friday.  If you ever have any issues receiving these, please email:
