Year Group Pages - 1st June Onwards

Home Learning Update - 15th June 2020
Firstly, I would like to thank you once again for your support over the last few months, particularly in helping your children with their home learning.  I understand that this is becoming more challenging for many parents due to increased expectations of employers and the length of time that the children have been at home.

As I said back in March, there is absolutely no expectation that you replicate school at home.  This is not realistic, and I certainly haven’t managed it with my own children!

Home Learning Years 2-6

From this week we have made some small changes to the home learning for Years 2-6.  On each year group page for Years 2-6 there are now 2 options for the home learning.

Home Learning Option 1

This is a weeks’ worth of learning based upon a theme linked to maths, English and topic.  It has online resources which can be accessed by clicking on the links in the document and some suggestions for further learning opportunities if you need more.

Home Learning Option 2

This is our familiar format of individual daily maths and English lessons and subject/project tasks.

Please feel free to choose whichever option best supports you and your children as you work from home.  Of course you are very welcome to dip into both if you prefer.


Home Learning Reception and Year 1

Last week we added some more guidance for those children in Reception and Year 1 who are not in school, and I hope this has helped to guide you in learning activities for your children to complete.  You are of course very welcome to look at the home learning for Year 2 (especially Option 1) as there may be ideas here that are suitable for your children.


Please remember:

  • Reading is really important, and is probably the most important aspect of learning that your children can do whilst not at school.
  • These are unprecedented times, and there will be points where our children (and adults) feel anxious, worried or fed up with being at home separated from their friends and wider families.  This is to be expected, and supporting our children through this is the most important thing we can do.
  • Learning is not simply maths and English – this is a great opportunity to learn new skills and interests.  Gardening, cooking, etc. are very worthwhile activities for children to be doing whilst at home.
  • Different families have different access to the internet, devices and resources.  Please simply do what you can to support your children, and do not worry if there are some aspects of the learning that are difficult for you or your children to access and complete. 
  • If there are days where completing the home learning is too much of a challenge, then don’t feel guilty for doing something different, whether this is going for a walk or bike ride, watching a film together or just simply doing something you all enjoy.
