Parent and children learning plans



Minster School Home Learning 

Work is being set for students through Show My Homework and by email.

Up until Easter this is on a lesson by lesson basis but will be moving to a more diverse approach after the holiday as follows:

Year Group


Junior School

Work will continue to be provided to parents by Mr Burns and Mrs Britten.  They can be contacted by email :

Years 7, 8 and 9

Learning continues in the current model for English, Maths, Science and MFL. Work will be set for individual lessons in line with your child’s existing timetable. A more extended project and activity approach will be used in other areas.

Years 10 and 12

Lessons will continue in order to support students on their exam courses. This will be set via Show my Homework. Students will complete a check point activity approximately every three weeks in each subject. This will inform teachers and students of their understanding of the work.

Staff are working in the background to innovate using technology and broadcast lessons and these will increasingly be incorporated into our provision. We recognise that in some areas access to the internet is not easy and we will endeavour to ensure what we provide will be accessible for as many students as possible.

A number of key resources can be accessed via our school dashboard here:

If you have any questions about the work your child is doing please use one of the following email addresses:

Farnsfield St Michael's

At Farnsfield we have set each child up an account on Microsoft Teams and are using this as a platform to share ideas for home learning including sharing files. Parents have the access in KS1 and in KS2 the children are accessing it themselves.

For those who need other resources or are struggling to access provision please contact individual class teachers by email. 


We want children and families to remain safe. We know that not all families will be able to do at home learning. We have suggested learning activities which are appropriate to your child’s age, however parents may choose to extend or simplify these to meet their own child’s needs.

Each teacher is posting an activity pack for their class on their class pages of the school website.


These are updated each Monday morning. Parents and children can communicate with their teachers through the school email. We are just about to relaunch Purple Mash (Monday morning) which will give teachers and children opportunities to share their work and ideas.



Dear Parents and Carers, 

We thank you for your support over these last few days. Below are details of how we plan to   provide learning challenges for your children during this period of school closure.

We value the support we know you will give.  We are also planning some additional e-learning support. We will be setting free accounts up on the following websites and providers.

Please let me know directly by email if you DON’T want your child to have an account. The sites are and


Mr Samuel Mensah (Headteacher)

Kirklington and Averham

All pupils have received a pack containing new CGP work books relevant to their age, a blank writing book and some reading books. They have had guidance on the types of creative activities they can do at home and "mathletics" is accessible to all online. Teams logins have been shared with families, through which we will be sending activities three times each week initially and making contact with the children in their class.

Holy Trinity Infants and Caunton Dean Hole

At Trinity and Caunton we are setting activities and communicating with pupils/parents mostly via Class Dojo, and also through email communications.

Pupils are being further supported with physical resources sent home and with online learning through Purple Mash and other online sites. Class Dojo videos are increasingly being used for Story Time and PE, for example. 

Our teachers are checking in with their classes daily at the moment and suggesting work/activities on a daily basis. We encourage families to consider their own situation and needs when engaging with the activities provided - your well-being is important.

Questions to individual class teachers please.

Lowe's Wong Infants

We are sending out activities and challenges for children which can easily be completed without the need to print work out.  You should receive emails and/or texts to keep you up to date with the activities.

Please contact individual class teachers by email if you are having any difficulties or need support.
