Home Learning

Below are some links to websites that have various resources and interactive games to help with your child’s learning. These are a great way to consolidate what we have learnt in school. Children have been given usernames and passwords for Mathletics, Times Tables Rock Stars, Oxford Owl and Espresso. 

 

If your child has to self isolate, below you can find a timetable of what is covered in class each week. Please note that this is a rough timetable to give you an idea of how much time we spend on different subjects but does change from time to time in order to best fit what the class is doing. If your child is self isolating, then their teacher will be in touch with them on Clas Dojo to provide work and support.
