Welcome to

With Miss Mcgahan

COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS- School is closed except for a limited amount of children. Please use the ideas below to complete learning at home.  

Hi guys,

I can’t believe it has been over a week since I have seen you all. I am missing you guys so much. I hope you and your families are well and that you are all staying at home and washing your hands.

Being stuck inside is necessary but it can be a bit boring so I hope that you are finding ways to keep yourself busy. There are lots and lots of suggestions on this page for activities you can do or websites you can visit to keep your minds and bodies active. 

As well as these suggestions, I am going to try to add a new challenge each week day which you can choose to complete. You don’t have to do it but it might give you something to do if your feeling bored. Always check with your parents/carers first.

Today’s Challenge:

 

How many ways can you say “Hello” in different languages? Can you make a poster which shows the flags of each country?

I will try to upload a new challenge tomorrow.

Stay safe, stay happy

Miss McGahan

The widespread school closures have created new challenges for everyone supporting young people. STEM Learning is working hard to develop and roll out a range of materials, which we hope will help you.

Our subject experts have put together a selection of resources – all of which are completely free for everyone to access. Our subject experts are also available weekdays from 8:30am to 4.30pm via our webchat, which you can find in the bottom right hand corner of all our web pages.

Resources focus on key food themes within curriculum areas, such as where food comes from, cooking, and healthy eating, but also offer a range of opportunities for cross-curricular (interdisaplinary) learning. Many resources and activities use food as a vehicle to provide engaging learning via subjects such as: numeracy, literacy, humanities, science, PSHE/health and wellbeing, D&T, religious education, and art.
