In the event of the school being partially or fully closed, or if a child is absent for an extended period due to self-isolation guidance, please see below for information on learning ideas and links to resources to support your child’s learning at home.
Please understand that it would be impossible to replicate a full school based curriculum through education in a home environment. Our aim is to provide a wide variety of ideas through web-based resources and printable resources that can be completed on screen or in your child’s ‘home learning’ book provided.
If you and your child wish to send learning back to the class teacher for them to look at after the school has reopened or while your child is absent, please use your child’s class ‘Google Classroom’ or the class email address.

COVID-19 Educational Resources – To support explain the pandemic and COVID-19 to your child
We are extremely aware that should your child be off of school – physical activity is essential in keeping well and healthy.
GoNoodle: Obviously nothing is going to be a full replacement for good, old-fashioned fresh air and time outside. But if the weather isn’t cooperating with your social distancing plans and is forcing you to stay inside, give GoNoodle a shot. Recommended by teachers who use it in their own classrooms, GoNoodle is a great resource for getting kids up and moving with fun, colourful, musical games and activities.
