Inspiring lessons from your child’s teacher make every virtual school day an engaging one. Your early years child will:

What does an Early Years' virtual school day look like?

The day starts with a live registration session where teachers engage in a fun activity to check students in ahead of their Virtual School day. The children have then complete a craft activity for hands-on learning and a daily continuous provision activity. After lunch the children enjoy story time with stories from our story bank created by our teachers. This is followed by live specialist lessons, either PE, Music or Chinese, followed by a live session from their class teacher at the end of the day.
