Information About Home Learning

Home Learning Guidance

Doing work at home is a lot different to being at school. Whilst you are at home you must complete your work in a way that is best for you and your family. Your parents might be busy working themselves so you will hopefully be able to complete many of the task by yourself.

Here is a suggestion for the work you might do each day:




Physical Activity


White Rose is the maths scheme we follow in school. They do a lesson a day. Please watch the video as it will explain how to do the work. Once you have done this you can complete the activity sheet. Lessons for this term are now on there but if you have missed any the older lessons have been kept there too. This will keep your learning up to date so please have a go.


Other Maths activities:

TTrockstars – Can you become a hero at home?


See our Learning Tab


We have uploaded a Talk for Writing Home learning booklet. Do an activity from it each day over the week.


Other English Activities:

Host a daily English Session from 9.30 – 10.30 with lots of fun reading and writing activities.

Login and read two activities


Spend time reading a good book. Can you read 2 chapters a day? Tell your teachers what you are reading. Check the reading review tab for books to read. Write a book review and send it to us so we can add them to this tab.



Do something that gets you moving every day.


Joe Wicks does an exercise video at 9 am every morning




Go for a walk, run, bike ride, scooter with someone from your family around your local area.



If you have a garden get out in it and make up your own PE lesson!

We have put activities for other lessons in the topic and RE tabs.


Choose one other activity to do each day.


Eg RE Monday, Science Tuesday, Art Wednesday,

History Thursday, Geography Friday.


This is a suggestion as to how your home learning day may look. Remember there is lots online to help with home learning. I know lots of you have been doing other work in books that your parents might have bought or that is interesting for you which is also good. Please do what you can.

We will add some other bits onto SeeSaw to keep you busy too.

Please try to do as many as you can. Work can be printed off, completed and put in you home learning book or you can just answers questions or complete activies in your home learning book.
