Virtual School


Hi everyone, 


Happy summer term! Hope you all had a lovely Easter and are staying safe. Our virtual learning is continuing this half term as we still can't be together at school. Every Monday I will upload a grid on the Purple Mash blog and on our class page of the website. This will outline your work for the week. On it you will see that there are some things that you must do everyday but the other things you can choose when you when do them so do it at a time that is best for you. Talk to your adult about this at the beginning of the week. Spelling shed and Times table Rock stars need to be used everyday. Some things will be set on Purple Mash (this will be highlighted on your timetable). 


You will still find the 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. You can choose to do any of these as optional extras. The BBC are also launching daily lessons now too starting on Monday 20th April so take a look at these. You can find more information on those here


I will continue to create a new post on the class blog every dayOn Monday's post there will be all the details you need to help you throughout the week. 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, please email me and I'll be happy to help! My email is


Have a fab week - Miss S x

Lovely response to home learning...

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.
