In case of Closure – Home Learning
Thankfully, school is fully open and we are not expecting to close for any lengthy period in the future. However, in the case of an unforeseen closure for any reason, we wanted to ensure that our children were able to access educational activities at home.
On this page, you will find websites that your child can access and we recommend, including those that they have individual login accounts for.
Always check Dojo! Class Dojo is our main form of communication with parents. Information from school and class teachers is regularly shared here. If you do not yet have Dojo or are unsure about how to use it, below you will find links to Dojo videos, that can help you to login, share information with teachers or get in touch with the Dojo helpdesk.

Websites the Children Have Logins For
Children have accounts for the following websites, and some will have a programme to follow or assigned activities, specific to classes, groups or individuals. These are the main websites that our teachers encourage the children to use. Purple Mash – the first link in the list takes the children to a website where the children can login and access all areas of the curriculum and there are often ‘to do’ activities for the children available that have been assigned to them by their class teacher.
Purple Mash – Computing and curriculum activities (all children from Nursery to Y6)
Times Tables Rock Stars (all children from Y1 – Y6)
Oxford Owls (all children – EXCELLENT free ebooks at all school levels)
Renaissance MyOn (online reading books for all pupils)

If for any reason, school did need to close for a longer period of time, below you will find links to more substantial lessons that your child’s teacher might direct you towards or that might be helpful for you to access.
