Home Learning

Dear Parents and Carers

In response to the ongoing need for children to learn at home during this time, we have set up class blogs, where teachers will post work each Monday.  Each class also has a class email address now and a selection of the work that your child does each week should be sent to this.

MyMaths is also available for additional Maths work and below we have put a collection of links to other work your child may interested in:

Twinkl – this amazing website, used by us at West Rise as well as thousands of others schools across the UK, have come to everyones' rescue with their 'Home Learning Hub' that promises to provide daily activities that will help to establish a bit of routine.
