Whole School

We are here to support you whilst the children are at home.  We will contact you on the phone, via Marvellous Me and you can get back to us by Hi 5ing our Marvellous Me messages or sending questions or photos of the children’s work via the class emails.  Stay positive and we’ll get through this together.

Whilst the schools are closed please select the appropriate year group for your child from the menu on the righthand side. 

Parents and Carers, if you would like additional support and resources for maths or English, then please click on the links for the English and Maths Resources in the righthand menu. Those links will take you to resources offered by various companies offering more activities for all ages.  On some of the sites there is a cost for some of the activities but there are plenty of free activities which you could try with your children.

HOME LEARNING GUIDANCE

This year we are changing our Home Learning Policy and we will be solely focussing on the skills of reading, spelling and numeracy skills.

Each week your child will be expected to read to an adult at least three times at home and have their home school book signed.  Every time they do receive a signature, they will be awarded a raffle ticket for our weekly prize draw. Please encourage your child to read a range of text types and refer to the questions in your child’s home school book when listening to them.

Each week, your child will be given a set of spellings to learn from the lists in their home school books and they will be tested on these in school in different ways.

Each year group also has key times tables that children are expected to know by the end of the year along with their division facts:

  • Year 4, 5 and 6: All tables up to 12×12 and related division facts
  • Year 3: 3, 4 and 8 x tables and all related division facts
  • Year 2: 2, 5, 10 x tables and all related division facts, including recognising odd and even numbers
  • Year 1:  Counting in multiples of 2, 5 and 10.  Doubles and halves to 10.
  • Year R: Counting forwards and backwards.

Children will be expected to learn these each week.

Your child has a log on and password for Easimaths which is an online program.  They are expected to access this at home where possible.

Your child also has a log on for ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’. This online program will help your child improve the speed and recall of multiplication and corresponding division facts.

If you have any questions about your child’s home learning, please do not hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher.
