Home Learning

 

Home learning is posted daily on Tapestry for our families and children to access remotely. Our teachers respond to and give feedback on children's work daily. On our class pages, we share and celebrate children's home learning. You can view these by clicking on the links below:

 

 

If you are unable to access digital learning, printed learning packs are available. Please contact the Othery School office for more information. 

 

 

WEEKLY TEAMS CALLS

 

We know that social interaction is really important during this time, so we are holding weekly whole class check-ins on Microsoft Teams. Invitations to these are emailed to parents each week. These are a chance for children to  see each other, show us what they've been doing and share news. During this meeting, we will also be celebrating the efforts of the children by continuing with our weekly 'Proud Cloud' award. You can view our 'Proud Cloud' gallery on our class pages.
