Remote Learning

Welcome to remote learning with St Martin's. 

This page will give you some information, guidance and ideas during the time when we are all affected by following the guidance during the coronavirus pandemic.    We are currently providing remote education to pupils. 

By the start of each week, your child's class teacher will have uploaded the week's learning for them child on their class page.  Every day, there is a live class Zoom lesson to keep in touch and to explain learning and provide feedback.  The class email is also in use daily for you to send in work and for feedback about work to be provided by teachers.

If you would like paper packs of work to be provided each week, we can do this, please let your child's teacher know. You will have received, and will continue to receive,  text and email messages about how to change reading books or collect work. 

We will also continue to send out regular newsletters and you can continue to keep in touch by emailing or the class emails.

On this page, we have included some useful general links and additional information and documents to download that we hope you will find useful.  Your child's class page will have more specific ideas to help and support their home learning.

 Here is the letter to parents sent on Tuesday 5th January with an outline of how we are providing remote education following the government announcement. 



Here is our remote learning policy 




 This is a lovely book for children to explain the current situation with coronavirus.


This is a helpful guide for parents/carers giving links to where to go for tips, advice, support and ideas to help with family life during the current situation.  It has been prepared by the East Riding Safeguarding Children's Partnership and our local NHS Care Commissioning Group.



When we are at school, we put aside some time every day to get together, pause, reflect and worship.  You might want to do this as a family at home. 

Every week, we will publish ideas for daily worship that you can do at home.  Mrs Robinson's Wednesday Worship can be accessed by clicking on this button.   If you have forgotten the password, please contact the school office.

 Teachers will lead an Endeavour worship during their Friday Zoom call.

This week's worship ideas can be found here:-



Here are some additional resources from the Diocese of York and the Diocese of Canterbury that we think would also be lovely to share at home.
