School Closure Information Page - updated 28th April 2020
As Essa Primary has closed for the majority of its pupils until further notice due to the COVID - 19 outbreak, daily home learning activities are being provided by Oak National academy https://www.thenational.academy and well being checks on class dojo each morning.
If you have not provided school with your email address, please contact Joanna Atherton on 07788313452. We have also provided a selection of work under the curriculum area of the website. Here you will find work for Maths, English, STEM (Science and Computing), Humanities (History and Geography), The Arts (Art, DT and Music), Religious Education, Physical Education and MFL.
We recognise that pupils are missing the Summer term 1 learning so we have provided the curriculum newsletters under each year groups summer curriculum page. There are activities linked to learning that can be completed on these.
Please also take this time to teach your children life skills that they can learn from you such as helping with cooking and washing the dishes, folding laundry, tidying the house and/or the garden. Most importantly, enjoy this opportunity to spend time as a family by simply eating together at mealtimes and talking about how you are all feeling. You could also enjoy watching a film together, reading a book or creating your own family quizzes.
We understand that these are very worrying times so please make sure you stay safe as a family and continue to follow the government guidance. We have added a section to the website called COVID 19. Please use this section for up to date information from the government. We will also be updating this section with ways we can help support families including accessing meal vouchers and breakfast packs. Please take a look.
Please stay safe! We look forward to welcoming you back to school as soon as we are advised to re-open
