Home Learning Resources

If your child is absent from school, please find below a variety of resources to support home learning across the curriculum. Some of these may need printing but there are other resources which can be completed on paper.

We would also recommend children to continue to read and practise times tables. All children should have their TT Rockstar login. Other good websites and games include: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Spellings will also be given out each Friday. Children will have a week to practice and learn spelling rules before the spelling test which will take place the following Friday.


P.E. Lessons

Our PE lessons are every Monday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their full kit in school on these days (white T-shirt, blue/black shorts & black pumps).
