Home Learning 

During a period out of school during the Coronavirus outbreak, supporting your child’s wellbeing will be as important as supporting them with their academic progress. Children will be supported best by having a plan for the week. What will they do academically with physical and online resources provided and what will they do for fun and to relax?Making a plan can make all the difference. Making a list or a timetable for each day together could be great fun and really supportive and settling.

Ideally, we would like children to spend time each day practising their times tables and spellings. It is also essential that they spend at least 20 minutes to 30 minutes a day reading. In addition to this, we feel that 30 minutes should be spent on maths and 30 minutes on English. For English, this could be a reading comprehension or a writing task. We believe that they should spend time each day either on science or theme (history or geography) - again around 30 minutes. Our day is structured as follows - In a morning, we would normally have maths and then English and after lunch it would either science, music, re, pe, pshe or theme.

Please also refer to our Year Group Home Learning Page.  These pages give specific learning information for each year group. The pages will be updated on a weekly basis with work that we would like your child to complete at home.


Practising times tables at home is really important. Knowing times tables facts really helps children to feel confident in Maths, and enables them to make progress in areas such as calculating, fractions… even shape work can involve times tables – when we think about angles, for example. The National Curriculum sets out expectations for times tables knowledge and states that by Year 4 children should be able to recall multiplication and division facts up to 12x12. Knowing the tables facts (including division) means having rapid recall – being able to say the answer within about eight seconds, not counting through the times tables to work it out. There are many online resources for example; TT Rockstars and Hit the Button.
