Welcome to our home learning page!
During periods of enforced school closure, each week, on a Friday, class teachers will upload the following weeks learning overview to the website, (under their class name on the home learning tab), as well as to their TEAMs class page.
Each class from Reception to Year 2 will start every day with a live ‘check in’ on TEAMS. The class teacher will outline the day’s learning for the children. Children will then be set a Phonics, English and Maths task daily, as well as a wider curriculum lesson, (this could be Science, Music, Art etc). All work will be closely matched to work that would have been carried out in school, to ensure that all children are accessing the appropriate curriculum.
Tasks will be set through a balance of recorded and live lessons, as we appreciate that families may need to access learning at different points during the day, due to other commitments. A story session will also be uploaded daily. Class teachers will respond to any work received in an afternoon. Teachers will also make a phone call to each family weekly.
Please share your child’s work where possible. This can be through their TEAMs page the class email, or via Twitter (@Lee_Brigg).
Please email school with any feedback on the home learning that we provide and see our Remote Learning Plan for further details. Lee Brigg Infant & Nursery School Remote Learning Policy

The Waterton Academy Trust website is updated regularly with further information for parents and carers.
We would ask wherever possible, pupils are encouraged to read every day and listen to lots of stories! There is a section dedicated to Reading on our General Resourcestab – why not take a look ?
We appreciate that for some pupils the adaptation to learning at home may be tricky; we would ask that you remain patient and try not to place additional stress on either yourself or your child(ren). Little and often is best!
In line with our esafety policy and guidance, we would always advise parental / carer support and supervision when accessing the internet.
