At Penhale Infant School we understand these are challenging times and we value the importance a quality education for all our children. If your child is isolating or has been sent home as part of a bubble then please use the daily timetable below to give you a guide and structure for home learning. Work will be set on the Seesaw with live lessons on Teams, which all children have access to and this will used by the class teacher to communicate in setting activities and providing feedback.
Live sessions and activities on Seesaw are planned and designed by teachers so that children can have a similar learning experience as possible to that which they could receive in school.
Please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office if you need any further support office@Penhaleinfantschool.org.uk
