Remote Learning – support from the BBC

From Monday 11 January, CBBC channel will feature three-hours of primary school shows to ensure that all children can watch programming if they don't have the internet.  BBC Two will focus for secondary school content to help students learning the GCSE curriculum. There will be two hours of lessons broadcast on television per day.   All of this will sit alongside the existing BBC Bitesize content, which will be available on the Red Button.  Similar to the first lockdown last year, Bitesize Daily shows will be accompanied with special archive broadcasts of factual drama that reflects the curriculum.  Programmes begin 9am with BBC Live Lessons and Bitesize Daily. All episodes will be on iPlayer.

Kindness Calendar

'Living our Values through Lockdown'.

More than ever, it is a time for us all to use and share our values with each other.

Each fortnight for the last 6 weeks of lockdown we set a ‘values activity’ alongside our home learning. This activity was for children and their families to reflect on some values based questions. A big thank you to all the families and staff who took the time to send in photos and messages answering the questions that were set.

From these contributions, three Values Blogs were created, and can be viewed at our 'Living the Values through Lockdown’ section by clicking on the link below
