Self-Isolating Information

16th March 2020

As per the government's directive, children must be off school for 14 days if they have a temperature higher than 37.8 degrees or have a new, persistent cough. It is important that if you are self-isolating that you are keeping your children at home and not letting them out into the village. This is obviously the definition of self-isolation.


Our plan for this is to provide you with work to do at home so as to minimise disruption to your child's education. Please check out your child's class page here as the teacher may have added work to download and complete. Work will need to come into school upon your agreed return for marking by staff.

Here are some things you can do at home.

For parents needing inspiration-

These websites are offering parents free access to resources and so you may wish to put something together so that your children can continue to learn. Anything relating to climate change or Easter seems a good idea as these are the two current whole school topics:

Twinkl has also put out this handy information.

We have a number of really helpful guides, designed for parents, for different areas of the curriculum. You can direct parents towards our dedicated Parents’ Hub which contains hundreds of educational activities designed for use at home. Or, browse this area yourself and hand-pick individual resources to share.

For parents with children in EYFS, take a look through our EYFS for Parents area to find some really useful guides and activities to share.

For primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area.

For parents with secondary-aged children (for ages 11 to 16), take a look at the Beyond area of the website. Resources are available for English, Maths and Science, as well as languages, art, humanities and other curriculum areas. Lots to keep older children occupied.

Our Parents User Guide and general Twinkl Membership guide are both useful documents to refer to for general information about the site, our content and how to find it.

What if I don't have internet access?

If it isn't feasible to do this, then ring us up and we will drop off a learning pack outside your house for you to pick up. It will have activities to complete inside it. Many thanks to FOSS who have offered to work on this for us bringing this together.

Y6 Maths Topics to Revise

Here's the list of what we are currently working on:

  • Multiplying fractions

  • Finding percentages including 35%
  • x and divide by 10,100 and 1,000
  • Accurate addition, multiplication, subtraction and division on paper
  • Identifying all 2D and 3D shapes
  • Mental shortcuts- x200, x300, using tables facts e.g. use 4 x 4 = 16 to work out 40 x 40 = 1,600
  • Keep an eye out for arithmetic practice in the packs or on the Beacon Class page.
