All Year Groups - Mrs Redgrave - Curriculum Support and Activities Page

On this page there are a range of links to a variety of websites that cover different activities. They are suggestions meant to supplement the class pages to give more choice and learning opportunities. They will be added to regularly over the period of our school's closure. 

We have also started to upload assemblies or messages to think about.

 

 

Daily Lesson Links

From these links children should be doing a maximum of 1 English, 1 Maths and 1 other lesson a day. There are lots of suggestions for PE and other subjects where children can follow their own interest if they or their parents want to pursue them.
