BBC Online Learning
The BBC have produced online learning for all year groups from Y1-Y6, they include daily English and Maths lessons, along with 1 additional subject per week. Simply click on the link below, select the relevant year group and subject that you require. The additional benefit of these lessons is that they can also be accessed via the 'red button' on your TV which will save the need for using a tablet/PC/phone device.
Home Learning Booklet
This is the booklet that has been sent home with your child in their home learning packs. All pupils have a paper copy of this booklet.
Within the booklet are a range of learning activities that your child can complete at home. These are ADDITIONAL to the work being set by your child's class teacher via ClassDojo. Therefore, there is certainly NO expectation that pupils will complete all work in this booklet – it is a place for parents to look to if they are wanting some additional work or are having trouble with the internet or accessing online learning. Although some are divided into year group activities, most are general activities for all.
Included in the pack which we have sent home with your child (or posted through if you are currently not in school) are an exercise book and a pencil. Where appropriate – work can be uploaded directly onto the Portfolio area of Dojo and class teachers will check daily on any work completed. (Unless class teachers themselves are ill.)
In the event that you have no access to the internet, a laptop or computer, we have ensured that there are plenty of activities that can be completed and all work can be recorded in the exercise book provided. For those without access to Dojo, class teachers will check in on you via phone once a week, to ensure that you have all that you need.
Also there is a huge benefit at this time for family games; board games, dominoes, charades. Even if self-isolating, and where it is safe to do so, play in outdoor spaces – gardens, backyards (not visiting parks or public places.) Enjoy games which involve throwing and catching, use soft items from indoors such as sponges, scarves, balloons, etc. bubbles using washing up liquid and wire to make a simple bubble blower, skipping, jumping, hopscotch, etc.

Maths Home Curriculum
Teachers will be setting Maths work via ClassDojo. However, if your child has a thirst for additional maths work, here are some ideas taken from the National Curriculum that you can easily work on at home. Just pick one or two bullet points to focus on over the week. If you are unsure as to which 'year group' your child is working at, please message your child's class teacher via Dojo.
Please DO NOT attempt to do all of it!
