Home Learning

During this time, we need to remember that everyone's health and happiness is the most important thing to us all.  Yes, we are providing some activities for children to do at home but we must remember that this is not home schooling.  We are experiencing a worldwide emergency and we need to keep perspective and look after one another as best as we can.  This is, at best, home learning and in reality it's just us all trying to do our best to keep some momentum going.

As always, you know what will engage your child and if you decide they will not engage with a certain activity and would rather they access some of the activities through the websites we have suggested, or that that they just want to play in the garden, bake, paint, play games or watch TV, then that is your choice and we fully support that.  The last thing we want is for you to feel guilty or stressed about not completing all the daily activities.

We know that it is not possible to facilitate home learning with children (especially primary aged) whilst trying to work from home yourself at the same time.  Please go easy on yourself and remember that when we all get back to normal, we will pick up everything in school your child needs.


Our ideal for children at home and key worker children in school is:

  • Some reading every day (there are lots of live reading sessions taking place and look out for teachers reading stories too)
  • Some English - free writing, letters to friends, comics, diary writing
  • Some maths - this could be practical maths around the home or just dip into the activities in the folder
  • Physical activity every day
  • Some topic and creative work


Every week we will add daily activities into the group folders for each subject.  To see what group your child is in and which work to download, please click on the subject folder and see where your child's name is. 


All children were sent home with a SeeSaw QR code in their packs so that their learning can be shared with teachers - we would love to see what you've been up to at home.  You can take screenshots of the worksheets and edit them, which should make it easier to upload onto SeeSaw.  If you complete activities on paper, you can also. screenshot these and send them to your teachers on SeeSaw.

If you require paper copies of any work, please get in touch and a member of staff will deliver these to your house.


Please also refer to the weblinks that were sent home in your learning packs and continue to use your passwords to access Purple Mash, Spelling Shed, TT Rocks and Bug Club.
