You will see some coloured words across the top. Find the one that says Curriculum Journey. It is blue.

Now find the year group. If your child is in Year 1 press Year 1 Home Learning. You can see the work set for the day.

If your child is finding the work too hard have a look at the year group that comes before the one your child is in.

Each afternoon class teachers will check the websites they have set the work on for their class and will mark the work.  If your child has completed work on Mymaths, Bug Club, Collins Connect or BGFL their teacher will send them some written feedback.

All children from Years 1 to 6 will be awarded stars on J2stars for the work they are completing at home.  The children will be awarded 1 star for every piece of work.

Your child may need more help. We have some information with links to useful websites that may help you.

Time to Come in, Bear – a story about social distancing. This is a really good story to help children understand why they cannot go outside.  You can find this by writing ‘Time to Come in, Bear’ into Google.
