COVID-19 Work packs

The current situation with Coronavirus has the potential to cause significant disruption to children's learning if they are required to be off school for an extended period of time. Our aim is to mitigate against this by providing work packs, pitched at the appropriate level, for children to complete. We cannot recreate the school environment in your home, but we hope these packs provide a comprehensive resource to ensure children remain engaged and motivated with their learning at this difficult time. The activities are a mixture of on-line learning, games, songs, activities and revision. At the time of publishing, all the links work and are free. Please let us know of any issues and we will try to help. Some resources have a 'paid-for' section. You don't need to subscribe but are welcome to of course. We will also add fun and engaging activities to each class page which your child (and you) might like to do. There is no expectation that all of this work will be completed, but hopefully it provides a useful starting place for parents looking to support their child's learning at this very difficult time. 

If you want your children to think you are a REAL teacher - these teacher cliches might help!

Teacher feedback

Whilst we will not be at school, the staff are still at work and they will be available to provide feedback if you have any questions. We will not be 'marking' work as such but will able to respond and will be looking forward to seeing what you have been getting up to. firvine@greatouseburn.n-yorks.sch.uk





Much of this content requires access to a computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone to complete. If this is a problem, we are happy to lend out the school iPads for home learning only. If you need one, please get in touch so we can arrange this.
