Message for school closure

All schools in England will be closed at the end of this week for a vast majority of pupils. This will include our Nursery. Details are still emerging around provision for children of key workers and for vulnerable children and there will be an update later today.

 

Below this message is the home learning pack for Year 4. If you are in isolation, please send a safe adult to school to collect a pack. 

 

If you need to get in contact with your child’s teacher regarding the home learning, whether that be to ask a question or for clarity, please contact us via our work emails: 

 

4JP - j.pridgeon@portsdown.portsmouth.sch.uk

4SG - s.gibson@portsdown.portsmouth.sch.uk

 

We have already updated this section as well with online learning websites which are free to access and help to provide some structure or routine whilst at home.

 

We will also add some further learning packs.
 

Thank you for your cooperation in this difficult time, from the Year 4 team.
