During this time of uncertainty we at Ashley Primary School are doing everything we can to help your child while our school is closed.
Follow the links to find more information specific to your academic year group from your teachers:
Please find below a list of websites that we subscribe to which your child should be able to log onto with their own log on details at home:
Lexia – possibly for children in Year 1 and 2
Mathletics – for children in Y3 to Y6
Some of our Junior children will be able to log onto the school website where their teacher may set homework activities and share files using Google Drive and Google Classroom. Please do bare in mind that this is a new area of sharing information which we have been developing as a staff but were not expecting to have to use it so soon and under these circumstances! Your child may also have access to their own school email account (which is monitored) so that they can communicate with their class teacher and school friends. Again – not all staff will use this mode of communication as we are most definitely in the trial stage. Some children may also know how to use Purple Mash to email their friends and teacher too!

If your child is struggling to understand what is going on – this social story may help to explain the Coronavirus. This story from Elsa Support is another story explaining the Coronavirus in a child friendly way.
