In the event of either individual self isolations or a wider isolation as a result of a PHE assessment, there are a range of online resources that can be accessed from home to support continued learning.
We provide subscriptions to the following sites:
- Oxford Reading Buddy (https://www.oxfordreadingbuddy.com/uk) for all children to develop both decoding and comprehension skills.
- Children in KS1 and KS2 also have access to MyMaths (https://www.mymaths.co.uk/) to support mathematical development.
- Year group access has been made available to Education City (https://www.educationcity.com/) which provides engaging, educational resources and games for all children across the curriculum.
Please see your child’s class teacher if you have not received your log in information to these sites.
Tapestry (tapestryjournal.com) is also used in EYFS and KS1 to share the work that is being completed in class and at home, and to facilitate learning conversations between parents and teachers.
The termly curriculum overview for each year group is available on the year group page, as well as additional information regarding when content is being covered in school. Year group leaders can also be contacted via the ygl email addresses and will aim to answer any questions/queries within 48 hours.
In addition to these subscription sites, a wealth of additional resources are available.
