Emergency School Closure
Temporary school closure email address: email@example.com
Home learning arrangements:
Children in Nursery will continue to use Tapestry.
Children in Rubies, Diamonds and Sapphires will use Seesaw accounts.
Rubies parents have had a request sent via email to join their children's account.
Diamonds and Sapphires have had a link sent to request to join their child's account via text message.
Your child's teacher will be able to receive messages relating to school work on their Seesaw account and will also be able to send home activities or suggest useful links or apps to support you at home. Please check your texts and emails to register your account.
Here are a few apps/websites that are available for you to use with your child at home, they are age appropriate:
- CBeebies storytime
- CBeebies playtime island
- Lingumi-Kids’ English
I hope you find these useful.
This is a list from the Rubies web page of sites that are suitable for their age range and the ones that are highlighted are approved by the Department for Education. I have also sent a list on Seesaw and will continue to update the Seesaw account with any useful links or activities I find. (Teach your monster to read and Phonics Play are currently free or 99p if on Google play for Teach your Monster to Read during the Corona Virus Crisis).
