Dear Parent/Carer,

As you approach the end of your first two weeks of home-schooling, we thought you deserved a holiday! With the Easter holidays almost upon us, we wanted to say thank you for all you have done to support the school and your children so far. 

Teachers will not be setting any formal learning over the next two weeks and responses via Dojo will be less frequent whilst we endeavour to give school staff a break too.  However, we recognise that you may also be looking for ideas for how to keep your children busy and creative over the coming two weeks, and we know just how talented Cosby families are, so we will be posting some ideas below, for you to dip into and select from. As always, we would love to see your photos and videos, so please do continue to send them to us via Class Dojo and we will share them when we return.

For the time being, all of the Cosby team send you and your family our very best wishes for a happy, safe and healthy Easter.


Mrs Withers and the Cosby Team

Year 3/4

Due to the recent school closure, home learning activities will be posted here for you to access. It is expected that your child attempts these activities to the best of their ability. The activities posted will be practical where possible but some activities will need recording in some way, e.g. in their exercise book, by photograph or on a computer. 

You shouldn't need to print these tasks, they can be done from the computer. Please write the title of the piece you are doing in your exercise book and put everything in there, some small adaptations may be needed e.g. if it asks to underline, write the word instead.

Thank you for your continued support.

Please ask Miss Cox or Mr Robinson any questions through Class Dojo messages.
