Ideas for learning at home

If you find yourself away from the class for a short time. Here are some activity ideas to keep yourself engaged and focused during your time away. 

The Story of Jack and The Beanstalk - Fairy Tales for Kids

  • Above is the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Watch the video and retell the story by creating your own story map. Can you change the ending of the story so it is different to the original?
  • Paint or draw a picture of a beanstalk or a world where the beanstalk could take you. 
  • In Science we are looking at plants. How many plants or trees can you see from a window of your house? Do you know what they are called? Maybe you could grow some of your own seeds or try and grow some of your own fruits or vegetables using offcuts / seeds from what you have at home. What do plants need to stay alive and healthy? 
  • Practice your spellings at home on Spelling Shed. New ones to learn will be added fortnightly.
  • Spend some time exploring Purple Mash. I would love to see anything you have done!
  • Spend lots of time reading together. Discuss your favourite stories. Who was your favourite character and why? What did you like about it? Maybe you could write a book review or draw a picture of your favourite part. I have put some book chat ideas below that you might want to do. 

Questions to check comprehension of reading

Charanga Music


As part of the Remote Learning your child may like to try some music. At school we use ‘Charanga Musical School’ during some of our music lessons so your child may be familiar with this type of lesson. Charanga have opened some of the lessons for Home School Learning. To access these each child will need a username and password.

Username: is your child’s first name and surname together followed by the school initials (sbs). An example: johnsmithsbs
