Home Learning Tasks

From Monday 20th April we will be starting our Summer topic called 'The World in our fridge'. Throughout the topic we will be learning about where food comes from, about our bodies, how to stay healthy and learning about the different parts of a plant.

We will plan tasks for Reading, Writing, Maths and Phonics for you to do everyday. These should not take more than 30 minutes to complete.

Each week we will attach the planning so you can see what fun tasks we are doing. If you are not sure about anything please email or send us a message on twitter and we will try to help.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please see the links below to useful websites that you may need during the school closure.

Rising Stars Reading Planet

We have signed up to an online reading scheme which allocates books to read based on their phonics knowledge. This allows children to apply the sounds that they know to recognise and decode words, building on fluency. Each child has their own log in details which gives them access to appropriate books that their class teacher has assigned.


Useful Phonics Websites for Parents and Carers - Has lots of information and guidance for parents/carers - Has lots of information, printable resources for each of the Letters and Sounds phonic phases, and also links to games aligned with each phase. - Offers a selection of interactive games for all phonic phases. Mostly simple games. There is now free access to all the content on this website using the following log in details-

Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) will be delivering a live 30 minute fun PE lesson every morning at 9:00 to try to keep our children active even if they can't get outside. He says that you don't need a lot of space to do the exercises so perfect to do together in the living room. Try to do 2-3 per week or more if you can.
