COVID-19 School Closure
As part of the response to COVID-19 Colville Primary School has been closed for the foreseeable future. We will communicate with you using the normal systems regarding closure arrangements and more information on home learning ideas as soon as we are in a position to. Please be aware that Colville School staff are currently working hard to provide childcare for the children of key workers and vulnerable students.

There are some essential bits and pieces in the school foyer if you are passing school on an essential errand during the day 9-3. We will print and supply the sheets and resources needed for the activities and place them in the school office. We will make our best efforts to ensure the physical resources for the week ahead will be in the office by lunchtime on a Monday.
Ideas and resources
There are lots of resources on the internet for pupils. Make sure you check sites in advance of your children to make sure you’re happy with the content. The list here is mainly aimed at younger pupils because the older pupils will be able to recall ones they have used in class or use a search engine to find relevant topic information.
New Phonics Resources
If you have a child in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 then you may want to look at the fantastic free resources that our phonics provider has made available at
These videos provide a daily opportunity for phonics learning and repetition. They also provide a helpdesk (via email) for parents to ask questions. There are links to ebooks and useful phonics resources. The format is exactly the same as the one we use in school so pupils should be familiar with the way the phonics is taught.
Planning and documentation (for parents/carers)
Our school curriculum is available on the curriculum tab so you can see the general themes that the pupils have been learning about in school. The National Curriculum also provides statuary and non-statutory guidance on the content of different subject areas. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-primary-curriculum
We will be publishing the weekly topic plans we will be using with the children who are in school so that parents can use this to help guide any learning at home should they wish.
We have subscriptions with the two following websites for our parents and pupils to use outside of school.
Maps – Digi map login https://digimapforschools.edina.ac.uk/login
Possion Rouge – As a subscriber school the company have kindly offered the following password and log-in details for all our pupils until the middle of April. A firm favourite with the younger pupils!
While we usually avoid the use of worksheets in school parents may find it helpful to generate work for their children to complete. There are some free ones available such as https://www.worksheetworks.com/
We will update this page when possible but hope there is enough here to keep everyone occupied and learning for the duration.
