During this unprecedented period of school closure, please work with us to continue your child’s learning. This period could last for some months, so it is important to get into a routine as soon as possible.
Every child has been given a paper-based pack of activities to help get them started.
We are currently building home learning pages for each year group within this section of our website. Please be patient whilst these are under development. They will be updated regularly.
We intend to contact every family at least weekly to discuss your child’s learning.
There are many useful websites to support your child’s learning.
Our main learning platform will be dbprimary
All children have their own username and password. Teachers will be regularly keeping their year group pages up to date with learning for your child. Many of the websites links below will be on the db page.
Espresso – all areas of learning
The above website links to every objective in the curriculum for both English and Maths. By choosing their year group, then choosing the objective they wish to work on children can complete online quizzes, followed by tutorials on any incorrect questions.

All children from year reception to year 6 can practice their basic number knowledge. It has simply recognising numbers, 1 more, 1 less etc. It then builds up to number facts to 10, 20 and 100. All children have their own username and password (KS2 children this is the same as you TTRS log on)
