Remote Learning from Home

Return to school countdown:

We are ready to see you back in school on Monday - watch this quick video to see your clasrooms.

Click here to see the pictures.


Return to school countdown:

As we approach Monday 8th March 2021 and our return to school, we thought that you might find the sheets below useful for those children who may require a visual countdown to help them prepare for their return. The countdown on the sheet begins on Monday 1st March.

If you or your children have any worries or questions about the return to school then please get in touch with the school, and we will do our best to help you.

During this time when you are keeping your children safe at home, please use the Year Group links below to access online learning. We also know that some of you will be using the paper packs of work that we have set for the children to use. 

**NEW paper packs will be available from the office fortnightly:

*week beginning Monday 18th January 2021*      *week beginning Monday 1st February 2021*

Snow!       Nursery                 Reception                 Year 1                 Year 2

Morning Robins               Afternoon Robins

Please use the year group email addresses to send pictures of any work completed for the teachers to be able to feed back to you.

            nursery@greenvale.medway.sch.uk            FS@greenvale.medway.sch.uk            yr1@greenvale.medway.sch.uk            yr2@greenvale.medway.sch.uk   

If you do not have access to email pictures, work or queries in, then we will accept paper packs being returned when you come to collect further work as directed at a future date.

Thank you all for your support with your children's learning at home.  

Parents - if you feel it is more appropriate to develop or challenge your child's learning or if they have additional needs please look through the online learning we have set for other year groups too. The link below will take you to the SEND section of the Oak Academy website for any children who have additional needs.
