Home Learning during the COVID-19 Pandemic
If your child/household is self-isolating or quarantining due to COVID-19, you can find home learning resources in the 'Files to Download' at the bottom of this page. These have been chosen to help support your child's education during their absence from school.




Autumn Term 2020
It has been fantastic to be back in school with all the children and they have settled really well into our new routine.
 Reading books: should be kept at home until they have been read with an adult and brought into school on Monday & Thursday. Please fill in the reading record daily so that we can see how brilliantly they are doing. Each child has a second book kept in school which they read to staff. Books can be returned Monday & Thursday only.
Homework: we will start sending homework from Friday 2nd October.
Homework will either be online learning e.g. Education City, TTRockStars etc, or a “paper” task that is emailed out to parents/guardians with editable electronic documents attached. There will also be weekly spellings for your child to practice which will be emailed to you each week, along with fun ideas for practising spellings. We will start having spelling tests the following week!
Please work with your child to complete the homework document and email it to Ms Challenor in one of two ways:
  1.  Print out the sheet for the child to complete. Then scan or photograph their work and email the image to Ms Challenor.
  2. Edit the document on a PC or other device, save it with a new name and email it to Ms Challenor.
Ms Challenor will email instructions weekly to parents.
In addition, children should read each night and practice bonds of 10 and counting in 2s/5s/10s. 
PE days this year are Monday & Friday. Children come to school in PE kit (white t-shirt, plain black joggers, sweatshirts and trainers). They will be outside as much as possible!
This term, we will be doing lots of fabulous learning!
In English, we will be reading stories in familiar settings, beginning with ‘The Bog Baby’ by Jeanne Willis. We will be ensuring our writing makes sense and that we can use some punctuation correctly. We will also be developing our phonics and spelling skills through daily lessons.
 In Maths, we will be focussing on place value, number bonds and addition and subtraction, using lots of practical and pictorial methods to develop the children’s understanding of these key concepts.
Our Topic this term is ‘Where We Live’.  We will be learning about Remembrance in History and studying the changing seasons in Science. In Geography, we will be learning about the countries that make up the UK and their capital cities. In ICT we will learn about  online safety. 
Warm wishes
Ms Challenor.
