Home Learning

 

From June 8th, school will be opening for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. 

Staff will teach children in small bubbles, from the national curriculum but will not be marking work.

The most practical way for children at home to learn is by following the Oak National Academy, White Rose Maths or BBC Bitesize for daily English and Maths lessons.  Children can then access the broader curriculum by following the alternative suggested links or work listed below.  Sites such as Times Tables Rockstars and Bug Club should also be used to compliment learning.

 

Remember to continue to teach children about life:

                           Tying shoelaces and ties!   Baking!   Wildlife!  Gardening!  Telling the time!   

 

Any additional work or information for specific year groups can be found at the bottom of this page.

 

                   


             

 

Below is a link to a fantastic online resource to read plenty of books. 

Follow this instructions to support your search for a 'Great Read'.

 

History & Geography Projects

 

UPDATED from 1.6.20:

The following are topics from Summer term 2.  Some topics are large enough to continue from Summer 1 and some Geography topics are not applicable for home learning.

 

We would love you to express yourselves and create something that demonstrates your learning, but here are some suggestions:

  • A PowerPoint presentation
  • A model
  • A poster
  • A pamphlet
  • An essay
  • Artwork

 

 

Use the internet to research and learn about these topics that would have been covered in school.  If you complete a topic, you may wish to look at an area from a younger year group that you may not have covered before we changed our curriculum.
