Home Learning

Home learning

Dear Parent/Carer,

With the current situation of school closure, and to minimise the impact on your child’s learning, we have prepared a range of tasks for your child to complete at home.

We have included a range of tasks for English, Reading, Maths, Science and Spelling.

Maths - We recommend that your child reads and plays TT Rockstars for at least fifteen minutes each day. In addition to this we encourage them to watch a maths video and practice the skill.

Reading - Your child should read everyday for fifteen minutes. Then they have a range of reading activities to pick from. This is to ensure your child is engaging with the text and continuing to develop their reading skills.

English - One picture every day and different writing tasks every day. Each picture will contain story starters, sentence challenges, question time, sick sentences and prefect picture tasks.

Spellings - children to focus on one spelling rule each week, practising every day. This could be completed by using the Spelling Frame website, writing sentences with the word, handwriting and pyramid words.

Broader curriculum

Science – To look at the science tasks and key questions relating to different scientific topics.  

Computing – Children can log into Purple Mash (normal school log in) and complete a range of tasks relating to the computing curriculum.

Spanish – Children can access Language Angels pupil games area and work through topics starting with early language topics. The log in details are blakehill, blakehill2020.

Project – As we will be looking at the Stone age next term, we have set the children an open task to research and create a project based on the stone age.

It is important that children have a healthy balance of educational, recreational and physical tasks to ensure positive wellbeing.

We thank you for your continued support and we will continue to update you as necessary using Marvellous Me.

Thank you
