Learning at Home

In the event of a school closure we will provide information and activities for parents to carry out with their children. However, we recognise that some families are currently self-isolating and have asked for support with home learning . We will be adding links to websites which parents can access in order to support any home learning that they wish to undertake.

We would also urge to spend time reading or sharing books, putting aside some time each day to engage in reading, discussing meanings of words and enjoying a story is a powerful learning opportunity.

Maths for all:

  • https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ : we use White Rose Maths as the basis for our learning in school, so the children will be familiar with the type of questions and formats. Please try to work through one lesson every other day to keep your child’s fluency up. Watch the videos and complete the activities (either printing out the resources, or writing the answers in your home learning journals). If you would like to share your outcomes with your teachers, please send them in to us to look at!
  • https://thirdspacelearning.com/blog/home-learning : a great blog with links to guides for supporting home learning in Year 2+, as well as guides to helping with maths anxiety, building a growth mindset, ways to make maths fun and engaging (and not just online!), and a knowledge buster to explain areas of the National Curriculum
