Home Learning

A message to you all from the staff!




We have a number of subscriptions to sites to support your child learning at home.

During the Covid-19 school closure, each year group are being given ideas for home learning each week. These are e-mailed out on a Friday for the following week. The overview and any supporting resources can be found by clicking on the year group tab. We suggest 2-3 hours a day to be spent on home learning during this period, which will include readiing, being active and basic skills practice with some Maths and English every day. Do not worry if your child is not completing all that has been set by teachers, just do what you can and keep in touch with your child's teacher.

Your child should have their log in details to the relevant sites in their homework book. If they have lost them, please contact your child's teacher for a replacement.

A beautiful book not to be missed!  ‘The Book of Hopes’ by the Literacy Trust. Words and pictures to comfort, inspire and entertain children in lockdown. Completely free for all children and families, the extraordinary collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures has contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson. The collection, published by Bloomsbury, is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in hospitals. The Book of Hopes is currently available to read online only. Bloomsbury intends to publish a gift book based on the project in the autumn in support of NHS Charities Together.
