Home Learning

Whilst the school is closed due to the Coronavirus we will be setting homework on this page.

Children’s Work – In the event of closure due to the Coronavirus, the school will aim to produce schoolwork for children to complete.  Teachers will spend the first full day of the school closures preparing and developing work to post on the school website.

Work will be added over the isolation period to ensure that children are kept busy and to continue learning.

Children will be asked to complete the following activities daily:

  • Spellings
  • Reading
  • Times tables

In addition to the above tasks, a variety of activities/challenges will be set for different year groups based on learning already completed (consolidation) or current learning.  There may include:

  • Short burst writing activities
  • Espresso (ICT) based learning including watching videos etc
  • CGP (Year 5/6 only) learning
  • Practical activities – baking cake, making biscuits etc.
  • Maths No Problem activities.
  • Reading comprehension

We are very aware that most families do not have printers so will try to ensure that all activities can be viewed on screen rather than the need to print out.

Children should collate their work or email back to their class teacher.

A suggested timetable may look like the following:

Friday – Teachers plan work for the children

Monday – Work for the week will be uploaded to the school website ready for the children to start completing. 

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday – Children complete their work. Reception via Tapestry, Year 1 in yellow home learning books and Year 2 in their exercise books.

Please note: work that the children complete should not involve any printing and will just require you to access the plans via a mobile, laptop or computer.
