St Philip's Church of England

Controlled Primary School

Year 1


In the event of the closure of our class bubble due to a confirmed case of COVID-19, or if your child is self-isolating, the work to be completed during this time will be listed below. Please see the attached timetable as a guide for their home/school day . It is our expectation that in the event that a child/ bubble of children is self-isolating that they engage with and complete the work set to the same standard that they would in school. This is vital to enable their education to continue. 

Daily contact will be made either by telephone or 2email via Purple Mash. A copy of the login details for Purple Mash has been attached to the front of their home learning folder. If necessary,  please contact school either by telephone or email if your child needs their login details. 

Some tasks will be set each day on Purple Mash.

In the event of a bubble closure or your child is isolating, they will be given a pack to take home. This will include exercise books to complete maths and writing based tasks as well as some paper based activities (a copy of the Head Start home learning booklet which can also be downloaded as a pdf below).  These packs will then be returned to school and checked by a member of staff when your child/ bubble returns to school. It is important that the work is completed neatly and to the high standard that we would expect from the children in school. The children's home learning exercise books will be kept and used again if necessary. 

Thank-you for your on-going support during these uncertain times.
