Whole School Home Learning Projects

Children's Mental Health Week

Friday 5th February 2021


Hello everybody.

Your class teacher will have directed you here for your home learning. Today I would like as many of you as possible to join in with our whole school learning project on Children's Mental Health Week.


First you need to watch the assembly video below. Then you will need to access the 'mini projects' which are also below. Finally, don't forget to send your wonderful creations to your class teacher. I would love to be able to share them on here, for you and your friends to be able to see and celebrate the wonderful people you are! 


Stay safe and take care of yourself and those around you.

This week (W/C 13.7.2020) our topic is going to be ‘nature and our environment’. All the children I teach know how passionate I am about being outside and exploring our local surroundings. Children are naturally inquisitive about the environment around them and hence learn so much from their experiences. We do not have to move far before we come across nature. In this busy world, often we miss the beauty that is all around us. So, this week I have pulled together some fun tasks that you and your family can really enjoy. As like all weeks, pull out the activities that suit the age of your child. Have fun!  Mr McDougall

This week’s (6.7.2020) learning project focuses on supporting your child with transitioning to their new class, or being an older member of their existing class. . Please see your Class pages for more information and activities. 



With this each class having the theme of Space, we thought we would choose something that is a little different or 'out of this world' laugh 

Below is an activity grid which will give you some ideas on the kinds of tasks your children can complete. There are also some pictures and documents to help support.

You may have your own ideas for Monsters and Aliens week – feel free to do something different but please send any work into and I will start a gallery which I will be 'over the moon with!'

World Environment Day - Week 2

Hello everyone!  I hope you have enjoyed your half-term in the sunshine.  Hasn't the weather been wonderful!

On Friday this week, 5th June, it is World Environment Day.  The theme for 2020 is, 'Time for Nature'.  The document below is full of activities that link to nature and will hopefully help us to learn something new about nature.  By taking the time to complete some of these activities you really are making 'time for nature'!  I've popped some photos on the website to show some of the nature I see and admire everyday.    Have fun with the activities and don't forget to e.mail some photos :)
