Together we can make a difference

Home Learning

Hopefully, as we continue through this next academic year, there will be less need for self-isolation and learning from home. However, if there happens to be a time when you want resources to learn at home, please find them below!


Remember I can be contacted via email or through Class Dojo.

As you know, there may be a time where you may be off school due to self-isolating or staying at home. On this page, you will find lots of actives that you can complete at home. Either Maths, English, Science and Topic. 


Please find below a range of things to keep you learning and having fun until we can see you again. Once you have completed an activity, please either send via Class Dojo or email to:

Structuring the day

Do not worry about trying to maintain a full routine for your child like they had at school. But children will feel more comfortable and learn better with a predictable routine to the day, even if this is difficult. But generally, you should try to make sure that your child:

· gets up and goes to bed at the same time each day

· has regular meal times

· has regular breaks

· makes time to be active – children are used to regular play at lunch and break times


Using digital devices

If your child’s work is being done on a digital device such as a laptop, desktop, tablet or smartphone make sure you set age-appropriate parental controls on any devices your child is using and supervise their use of websites and apps. See advice  on keeping them safe online and talk to your child about online safety.


Reducing screen time 

Digital devices are not the only way to learn. Manage screen time with a timer and break up screen time by getting your child to:

  • use books and other printed materials that school has provided or that you have at home.
  • write by hand – try asking them to complete work by hand, write a diary, a summary of things they have learned or done each day or ‘to do’ lists. Be active and get away from the screen regularly – see a selection of physical activity resources for primary school children below.
  • stop using digital devices at least an hour before bed.
