During these unusual times our teachers are thinking of new ways to connect with their classes, this is increasingly involving new technology! Please understand that our teachers are working hard to regularly set work for children online and to virtually monitor and possibly interact with the children. This may look slightly different for each class at the moment, as each teacher is navigating their own journey with this new technology. Therefore, we ask that you continue to be supportive during these unprecedented times and not necessarily expect instant replies to queries and understand that sometimes feedback may just be a "like or a smiley face"! If we all work together we will come through this stronger and with an increased sense of community! Happy learning!


Dear parents and carers,

We are providing the accompanying resources to support home learning during this period of school closure.

As well as these resources we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that the Next Step sheets that are sent home regularly have ideas on how you can help support your child with their personalised next step. The form also details some of the activities we had planned to do at Nursery and so if you are able you could try some of these too.

Finally, we would like to signpost you to the following websites with ideas and online content.

Best Wishes,
