Home Learning Activities 2021
Welcome to our school Home Learning pages that which have been updated for January 2021.
Within each of the class links below you will find a range of learning tasks, activities and suggestions to support your child’s learning in the home. Each teacher has selected the activities for their classes that link into what would have been taught in the first half of the spring term 2021. We encourage children to record their work in any way they feel is suitable, for example written work on paper or take photos / videos of things children have done or made. Photos and videos can be uploaded to our Facebook pages / emailed to school and any written work can be kept until we return to school, then be brought in so we can value it and celebrate children’s successes.
We also hope to have ‘Seesaw’ (an online learning platform for children) up and running shortly which should further enhance our communications and delivery of our online learning. Details of this will be sent to parents’ emails if the children are not already aware of these.
Should you have any queries regarding the work set, please feel free to contact school and we will work to support you with this.

Drowning Prevention Week 12-19.06.20
For the past seven years Durham County Council have been working closely with key partners from the Royal Lifesaving Society and emergency services to promote drowning prevention and raise the importance of water safety.
Drowning Prevention Week, this year is running from 12-19th June 2020. The national aim of this campaign is to prevent the number of drowning and non-fatal drowning incidents which occur in the UK each year.
Throughout County Durham we are supporting the campaign and the delivery of National Curriculum for School Swimming and Water Safety, encouraging County Durham Schools, clubs, leisure centres, parents, families and communities to promote water safety education through the range of activities, aiming to raise an awareness of the potential dangers of water.
Please feel free to use the material available on the links below to raise the important awareness of water safety with your children.
