EPPLETON ACADEMY PRIMARY SCHOOL

Welcome to our school website.  Following the closure of all schools on Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice, we are continuing to support our parents and pupils during this difficult time.  As part of this, we will update our school website regularly, alongside communicating with pupils and parents using ClassDojo.  We have developed class home learning pages containing suggested resources that you may wish to use, and these can be accessed below. 

Whilst your child’s learning is very important, I want to reassure all parents that there is no expectation to recreate school at home.  For some children, they may feel more comfortable with a set routine, however this may not be the case for others.  Ensuring children have time to be active and play, time to be creative and time to talk is essential in supporting your children’s wellbeing. 

Many of the learning activities may be accessed online, however whenever possible your child should complete this work by hand, either by writing or drawing.  We have also included links to online books, but if children have access to printed materials to read at home, these should be used.   

Alongside class home learning pages there is a bank of resources to support families to keep children safe and talk to their children about online safety.  We are asking all parents to set age-appropriate parental controls on any devices your child is using and supervise their use of websites and apps.  

Please follow the link below for advice from the DFE on helping your child continue their education at home:

Mrs Bushby's top tips to stay happy at home


1. Get active- I have been running each day which has been amazing. I like to go out first thing on a morning and I have found it gives me more energy for the day. It’s my quiet time. I don’t see many people around but I have seen lots of birds, a few squirrels and even a hedgehog! 2. Cooking- My children are really fussy eaters, so I have been teaching them to cook to try and get them to eat different foods. We have made some delicious meals, although I’m not sure it has made them any less fussy! 3. Playing games- We are slowly working our way through the board games at home. So far I have won at Monopoly, Game of Life and Mousetrap. I was really terrible at Cluedo though!

Mrs Jackson's top tips to stay happy at home 


1. I have been finding my artistic side and have a sketchbook full of illustrations by using a website called 'Draw with Rob'. This author and illustrator leads you through step by step and makes it really easy. I think when I grow up I'd quite like to be a children's book illustrator! 2. Now don't laugh, but I have also been busy with my daughter nailing some Tik Tok dances (obviously the easiest ones). I have to really concentrate and we have a good giggle (normally about me doing it all wrong). They're not for public viewing mind...I make sure we're safe online and our account is protected. 3. Walking the dog in the sunshine with my family is the highlight of my day. We have found some great routes in our area which are really quiet, sometimes we are the only people around. It is so important to get fresh air and exercise. It makes me feel so thankful that we are happy, healthy and safe.
