Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


We expect children to reinforce and extend the learning they are doing in the Academy at home. To this end, we set regular home learning tasks. The amount of time children are expected to spend on formal learning at home increases as they go through the Academy. Children are expected to read, learn spellings and times tables daily. In addition, they are given tasks to reinforce current topics at the Academy including in maths and English. These may be extended tasks over a period of time. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have a reading diary, which can be used to promote communication between home and the Academy. Please write down anything you wish the teacher to know about their learning in your child’s diary.

With schools shut and families on lockdown indoors, the coronavirus crisis can be confusing for kids – and that’s why Grufallo illustrator Axel Scheffler has teamed up with experts to create a free book to explain it.

Coronavirus: A Book for Children aims to answer all the burning questions that kids aged five to nine years old will have been pestering parents with over the last few weeks.

Starting Monday 23rd March Joe Wicks is going to be hosting a free workout aimed at kids LIVE on his YouTube channel.

"With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive.
Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic.  
The workouts will be fun and suitable for all ages and even adults can get involved."

You don't need any equipment, just tune in to my YouTube channel at 9am each morning for a 30-minute, fun workout.
