Home Learning

Please browse this page for ideas and resources to support home learning in English, Maths, Science and many other areas of the curriculum.

 

Below you will also find a link to support discussions about the corona virus in a format created specifically for school-aged children. 

     

English


Ideas for home learning could include: reading books, practising your spellings, keeping a journal or diary or writing poems. 

For further practise with spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) you could write a paragraph of text with some common mistakes and ask your child to correct it for you. Here is an example paragraph which needs correcting: 

the brave explorer looket into the dusty entrance of the tomb He had never bean so terrified to begin an expedition. "Do you hav the torches" he asked the others. 
Yes, they should be in your bag, replied jack.
Tom took a cautious step into the darkness and felt the earth give way beneath his feet.
 

                                           

Maths


Maths is all around us so don't forget to look for shapes and numbers wherever you are. You could also practise your times tables with family members. 
Below you will find some further resources for maths home learning. I have also attached a video from "Maths4Kids" which is a great Youtube channel for parents and children to help with maths home learning.

Science

Why not practise your bird watching skills? Keep a diary or log of all the different birds you spot.

Have a go at some of these engineering challenges using household objects. We have already had some practise with this type of activity during our STEM bridge building day:
