Home Learning – On-line resources

On-line resources and suggestions for home learning

To support families who have had to self-isolate during the Covid-19 outbreak, we will be providing a range of on-line resources to help continue the children’s learning and hopefully reduce some of the anxiety these exceptional circumstances are creating.

We will be updating the links as we find more so please check the site regularly.

let Us Know What You Have Been Doing!

All families have access to ‘Tapestry-on-line’ which allows school and home to show via pictures and text how pupils are achieving.

If you don’t please contact the school office by email: admin@st-maryscofe.northumberland.sch.uk      Please include:

  • your full name,
  • the name of your child,
  • their date of birth,
  • confirmation of  the email you want to access Tapestry.

Teachers will be checking daily to see if anyone has added to their on line journal to see how the children are getting on. We may also be providing additional resources through Tapestry, so please make sure you are logged on to get any new email alerts when they arrive.
