Welcome to Melbourne Infant School's home learning page. We hope you find the information on this page useful. If you have any questions for teachers please email enquiries@melbourne-inf.derbyshire.sch.uk or send them a message on the Dojo App. 

It might be worth setting a timetable for your children so they have some structure for the day. 

Each child has a home learning pack which they have been sent home with. There are lots of activities you can do with your child within there. We have also sent home an exercise book so children can record their activities. We will mainly be using the Dojo App to share the activities but they are also below. These will be uploaded daily.
