In addition to the sites you are already familiar with, we are now introducing a learning platform called 'See-Saw'.


You may have already seen our teachers reading stories on this. 

We can now set activities for your child to complete in 'See- Saw'. All year groups will be using this, beginning with some trial activities this week. Teachers will be able to view your child's work and send them feedback.

Before the end of today you will receive an e-mail with your child's See-Saw home learning codes, instructions for using the site and how to set up the app. 

If you have any queries please contact our staff using the home learning e-mail addresses. Staff will reply, but please remember they are teaching classes in school.

Date: 12th Jun 2020 @ 8:29am

In response to feedback from parents, children and staff, we are making changes to our home learning from Monday 15th June 2020.

Each week there will be a planner to download from your child's class page. Choose at least three activities to do with your child.

The work will be a mix of downloadable and online materials. Sometimes you may need to work outside or use resources from around the home. There will of course, be physical activity.

We will continue to use the learning platforms Numbots, TT Rock Stars and Purple Mash, but we are also introducing 'Active Learn Primary.'

E-mail homelearning@bishoplonsdale.derby.sch.uk or your class learning e-mail for your username and password for 'Active Learn Primary'. The site can be used from Monday 15th June 2020.

New Home Learning, by Miss Brownhall

Date: 1st Jun 2020 @ 8:06am

Due to school re-opening and all staff being at school we have had to make a few changes to home learning.

You can still access on line learning via the class pages, but it will look different.

It would be great if you could follow what we have put on because the children at school will be doing exactly the same.

We don’t expect you to do it all - we understand that learning at home is very different to learning at school. Just do what you can!

Every class has a link to the ‘Twinkl Home Learning Hub’. Every day is different, it has a timetable for the day and all resources can be accessed on Twinkl or there is clear link to another site.


Teachers are still contactable on their home learning email addresses. Please appreciate that their responses might not be as quick as they are now in school with children everyday – but they will get back to you.

We would still like you to continue to send us photographs of your child learning at home and their work.

Although we are back at school, we will continue to do our best to support you all with home learning!
