School Start and End Times

Virtual Library

To further complement our Remote Learning Offer, we have created a Thorpe Virtual Library for you to access at home. Each teacher has picked a selection of books and all you need to do is to click on the books on the shelves to listen or watch the story. Please keep checking back as this is very much a work in progress and is being updated all the time. 

Virtual Craft Club

Don't forget to check out the latest episode of Mrs Gardner's Virtual Craft Club here. This week we are making a photo frame and a paper garland.

Explaining COVID-19 To Young Children

Struggling to explain the current lock-down to small children? This free E-book from children's author Claire Shaw, may be a helpful resource. 

SEND Resources for Parents and COVID Information

To support you with the latest lock-down, we have created a COVID-19 Resource page which will include the latest news, information and useful links if you are looking for help and advice on the Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs of your child and family during this difficult time. In addition we are constantly adding to our SEND resource page, which was set up during the last lockdown, so please keep checking back to see the latest content.

Government Advice is to Keep Children at Home if Possible

The Government updated its guidance for critical workers on Friday evening, and advised parents and carers of children who are eligible for a school place that they should keep them at home if possible. Leeds City Council reiterated this advice in their letter to all parents on Friday and asked parents to keep children at home unless they had no other option.

New Online Content

In addition to the work being set for each class via Dojo, Tapestry and Google Classroom, some of our staff have created some online content which can be viewed via our new Virtual School page. Content will include stories, Phonics and more. Please keep checking back as the page will be regularly updated.
