Welcome to Palm and Pearson Class!



We have put together some activities for children to do at home if they are not able to come to school. I am sure that we all want your children to be happy, safe and still learning at this time.  It will also  help you to keep them occupied if they have to be at home for an extended period of time.


This page we will be updated with new work or messages at least once a week. 


Please keep checking and keep you and your family healthy.

Good morning everyone,
In school this week we are reading 'The Tiger Who Came To Tea' and guess what????? A tiger came to Northgate!
The children were super tiger detectives keeping an eye out for the tiger in our classroom and wrote letters to him and Mr Jackson!
Don't forget that if you are at home you can write a letter to the tiger and send it to us on Seesaw or via email.

Week 9 - Home Learning

Good Morning everyone!

We have been busy getting ready to see you back in school from Thursday. The unit is looking a little different and routines will be adapted to manage the new situation, so to help your child understand the changes we have made we found this short video that you can share with them. 'Bubble' is a word we'll be hearing lots over this term as it is how we are going to keep the children organised and safe whilst in school. The children will take ownership over their bubble and contribute to giving it a name this week. Looking forward to seeing the children on Thursday!


Miss Lucy ❤

Week 8 Home Learning

See you soon!
