With everything going on currently with Covid 19, all schools have to have a blended learning plan that explains how we will ensure learning continues for pupils who may not be in school for a variety of reasons.

Our online learning is all done on Google classroom with the exception of Reception, who use Tapestry. Each year group has a Google site which is just like a website. The week’s learning will be posted there. Then the learning is ‘handed in’ on  Google Classroom, where your child’s class teacher can see the work they have done and respond.

For the first day of absence, you should use websites and activities from the ‘Learning Resources’ tab which can be found when you log in to your child’s Google Classroom account.

Please see the documents below which explain more about Google classroom and how to access it.

Please see the how-to videos to support you in accessing Google Classroom for the first time.


The videos below show how to hand in work on an Apple and Android device. The last video shows how to view the feedback that your child’s teacher has given on your child’s work.



What if Tapestry/Google Classroom isn’t working?

Sometimes, technical problems can happen and it may not be possible to view/access the learning for that day. Please use ideas from the list below should this happen. Remember that we need to hear from each family every day Monday-Friday. Of course, we would like to see your child’s learning from that day but an update in a message on Tapestry/Class Dojo is fine too.

– BBC2 have lessons each day and you should be able to access these on iPlayer.
– Children practise key skills on Times Table Rock Stars, Oxford Owl reading books and Purple Mash.
– Oak National Academy have loads of lessons on there – pick something and let us know what you learnt!
– Do a PE with Joe Wicks session. You can find these on his Youtube channel.
