Home Learning

Welcome to our Home Learning Page

This is where staff will set weekly activities for your child to complete. (Please scroll to the bottom of the page.) Don't forget there are also suggested activities in Class Pages. 

 

Suggested Timetable

To ensure continuity for your child and to minimise the educational impact of the school closure, it is important that parents and carers ensure that the children have some structure to their day. Obviously, every family will be different as there may be limited access to resources, but we strongly believe that children need routine.

 

We suggest that you involve your children in deciding the routine and try to stick to it, if it does not work, change it. For example, your child might work better in the morning. Below is just one suggestion of what this might look like:

Educational Resources

The DFE have also brought together an initial list of online educational resources to help children to learn at home. These websites have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts and offer a wide range of support and resources for pupils of all ages.
