Home Learning - Spring/Summer 2020

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

We hope that you are all keeping safe and well. The staff of St Gregory’s have all been busy and working hard to prepare some work for you to do from home while school is closed.

The links below are shortcuts to the folders that we will continue to signpost you to each Friday by email from your class teacher. Hopefully this will give you time to see what the learning entails for the following week and prepare anything that you may need to help you complete some of the tasks.

You will also see links to three key websites that your class teachers may have already directed you to in previous week’s learning. They will remain on this page as a shortcut, as it is likely they will refer to these platforms for future learning.

We appreciate that circumstances for learning at home are difficult for some, so whilst we do hope that you continue your learning and try your very best during this period of closure, we also understand that an ‘as and when’ approach is more realistic for some of you. As a priority, we urge you to keep reading and working on the recall of your number bonds and times tables.

We look forward to seeing you back in school very soon and will endeavour to keep in contact via our school email system!

Take care and God bless,

The staff of St Gregory’s
