Home Learning Update


As per the letter from Mrs Pridgeon last week, each year group has put together a suggested timetable of activities and these can be found on the Home Learning page within the Children section of the website.


Dear Parent / Carer,


As you are aware after half-term school will remain closed to the majority of pupils in line with government guidance. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the work you have been doing with your children at home and to share details of our remote-learning offer for the summer term.

  • All pupils should access Education City where Maths, English and Science activities will be assigned on a weekly basis.
  • Pupils from Year 2 upwards have access to Times Table Rockstars where appropriate times tables practice will be assigned.
  • Parents of pupils in Early Years will be directed to appropriate activities by logging on to Tapestry
  • There will be a list of useful online activities, including links to websites, on the school website
  • Each week a suggested timetable of activities will be uploaded to the school website. This will include suggestions of television programmes; online work and activities that can be done with your child in and around your home.
  • Support in accessing digital resources is available from school at all times.
  • Paper based alternatives will be made available upon request for those families that cannot access digital resources
  • We cannot send reading books home at this time but can direct you to online reading resources

We really appreciate the efforts that parents are going to in ensuring that their children’s learning can continue throughout this time away from school. It is important that you continue to support your child to complete school work each day. Having a clear routine for working will really benefit your child, both during this time and when they eventually return to school. Please include the following in your daily routine:

  • Encourage your child to complete a daily Maths and English activity online or on paper – there is value in revisiting previous activities for further practise. Staff will be monitoring access to online resources and may contact parents in relation to this.
  • Read with your child and encourage them to talk about what they have read
  • Complete an activity linked to another curriculum area such as science
  • Complete an activity that requires your child to move about and be active
  • Share a game with your child that involves them needing to speak – board games are great for this.

 School staff are available throughout the week should you need any assistance with home-learning. Thank you for your continued support during this time,


Yours sincerely

Mrs Pridgeon
