Welcome to our Home Learning page. During the recent period of school closures, we provided a range of home learning activities and all children from Year 2 upwards had the opportunity to borrow a school Chromebooks to allow them to access online lessons. For further information on how to use the Chromebooks, click here: Chromebooks – guidance on how to access Google Classroom. Children also received home learning packs containing:
- a maths study book (Year 6 can use their SATs revision books)
- a letter detailing their passwords
- for Key Stage 2 children, instructions on how to access Google Classroom
- new reading books
- spelling lists
Key Stage 2
Children in Key Stage 2 are encouraged to use Google Classroom, if they are able. This will allow Mr Farmer and Mr Laithwaite to set work each day and children will be able to contact their teacher if they need extra support. They have a maths study book, have access to a range of online activities and should continue with regular reading and daily spelling (Look, Cover, Write, Check) practice.
Key Stage 1
Those in Key Stage 1 have been provided with either a home activity book (Year 1) or a maths study book (Year 2). They should read regularly with an adult and spend time each day doing an online maths/phonics activity and their daily spelling (Look, Cover, Write, Check) practice.
Reception children will be provided with a pack containing a range of activities to encourage the skills they have been learning in school.
Here are some of the online resources mentioned. We recommend that children should use them ‘little and often’ rather than doing them in one long session.
