Whilst online learning cannot replace education at school, it is being used as part of our continued provision for pupils’ education at this time. Please press here to read Beam’s remote education provision for your child.
The purpose of Google Classroom is to ensure that your child’s activities match our curriculum.
Research (EEF) has shown that when your child’s teacher explains a new idea in a pre-recorded video, they are able to build clearly on their pupils’ prior learning and this will improve the quality of remote learning – your class teacher will do this via Google Classroom.
Not all families have a computer; nevertheless, these resources can still be accessed online via a mobile phone or other electronic devices that use WiFi. Accordingly, please refer to your child’s year group page for more detailed curriculum information and to discover some of the fun educational activities that our families have created!
Enjoy this time as a family and create memorable experiences.

Information for your Meet VE Day party
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, there will be year group parties held via Meet (on Google Classroom) throughout week beginning 4th May.
The party will help engage the pupils in this momentous event that is such a prominent part of British history.
You are invited to take part in the VE Silence in whatever way you feel appropriate – be that standing at your window, stepping outside your home whilst remaining distanced from others, or taking the opportunity for a quiet moment of reflection.
Following the Silence there is a VE Day livestream, where those who served and sacrificed during the Second World War will share stories and memories, hosted by TV presenter Sonali Shah, the programme will feature contributions from social historian Julie Summers and cook and influencer Melissa Helmsley. The stream will be live from 11:15am on the British Legion website.
You could also join in with the celebration and thanksgiving by taking part in a UK-wide rendition of Dame Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’ at 9pm. BBC One will feature the singalong as part of its VE Day 75 evening broadcast.
