Home Learning

Welcome to our Home Learning Zone. 

Welcome to The Gateway home learning area. Please click on your class name to access the work that your teacher has set for you to do. Please note this is only suggested learning rather than compulsory and can be developed with your own ideas. You may need to take a flexible approach to the timetable due to restrictions on access to technology, which we fully understand. 

 

At the bottom of the page we have uploaded a range of links which parents may find useful to support learning.

 

Below is a similar timetable to one which we aim to follow in school, which you may find helpful to follow. It is based on a regular school day and the sort of lessons your child would participate in.
