Sir John Sherbrooke Junior School

We are a 'Take Care' school

Working from Home & Extra Learning

The content on this page is for any child who can't be in school, but is able to do work at home or for children who want to access extra learning at home.


Please look at your child's year group pages and select the right section of work to do. Please follow the daily work in the INDIVIDUAL home working section. If your child's class is at home isolating, please follow the WHOLE CLASS working from home section. 


Every year group's learning is split down into daily lessons and a weekly timetable has been created to help you structure the lesson times. If you would like a physical work pack, please contact school and we will print one off for you. There is also the link to the BBC Bitesize lessons for each year group, if you want additional work to do and you can access Oak Academy videos. 


If school is shut for an extended period of time, we will aim to hold daily zoom lessons and use an online work sharing platform.
