Virtual School


Hi everyone, Miss Springhall here...


As we can't be at school at the moment I will be adding activities you can do at home to our various learning platforms including Purple Mash, Spelling and Maths Shed and TTRS. All the links to these websites you can find below. You can also find links to other fun websites which will support your learning at home, these include links to free e-books and audio books so you can continue to read and listen to stories like we did in the classroom.


I included a timetable in your pack so try and follow this. Every day I will create a new post on the class blog (a tutorial on how to access this is below)On here I will outline ideas on what you could do each day. You can also chat and ask questions on here if you need to. I love to hear about what you've been up to so let me know on the blog.


If you have any photos of things you've been doing that you would like to share with the class please email them to me, as I would love to share them on this page.


 If you have any questions at all, please email me

Important information

  • Spellings go out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday.  
  • Children must come to school everyday equipped with their reading book (from our library with appropriate book band) and reading diary. We check these every week. It is critical for your child's development and learning that they read 4 times a week, this is our target and we have some incentives to keep us going!
  • Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday, however please ensure your child brings their PE kits every day in case of last minute changes. 
  • The school office is "cashless" and will therefore only be accepting payments via "Parentpay". For more information please visit the "Parentpay" page of our website or contact the school office.
  • Homework will be linked to what we have been learning in maths/SPaG. This will be handed out every Monday and will be checked during registration the following Monday. 
  • For any other information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to Miss Springhall.
