The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Griffin - Home learning

 We have become aware that some of the recently uploaded plans have not arrived where they should have done on the  website.  We are in the process of reloading the plans with amended dates so that the learning progression is maintained.  

Term 5 Learning 

We have delivered English and maths packs to those parents who wanted them. Below is some work and ideas we have put together that link to the work we would have been doing in class.


The afternoon curriculum is provided by a series of weekly plans that are posted below.  The general concept is explained here Home learning guidance and work for Griffins.  This document explains how we are providing the learning material and contains some important advice on keeping your child safe when they work on line.  Please read this before moving on to access the weekly plans.

The individual weekly plans are posted below. They are provided as a guide for you and your child to explore each subject.  Each week builds on the previous week's experience so it would be helpful to follow the plans in order, but if you need to move at a slower pace that's fine.  Remember this is home learning not teaching.  If it stops being enjoyable, take a break.
