Home Learning – COVID-19

The school is currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

To support home learning, we are sending out daily updates via ClassDojo which are tailored to the class and year group. This is a difficult time for parents and children as you all adapt to a new way of learning. You will need to find your own way of working that is most successful for you and your family.

Class teachers can be accessed through ClassDojo. Just send a message and the teacher will get back to you as soon as they can. You can also contact the school by e-mail: office@st-matthews.kent.sch.uk

Daily plans are being sent out via ClassDojo. Any planning that is for longer term will be posted on the website for reference.

Dear Parents and Carers,
These resources have been sent to schools from the Specialist Teacher Service at Broomhill Bank.  There are some great ideas for home learning and for supporting children who may be feeling anxious or struggling emotionally at this time.  Resources will be added to this list as we receive them.
