January Lockdown Home Learning


Hello parents / carers,


Please find the information to support your home learning during this half-term.


 Google Classroom(link is external) 


The vast majority of work will be posted on Google Classroom. To support the pupil learning (and make it easier for adults), teachers will record themselves explaining the powerpoint and going into the work in more depth. Our aim is that nearly all children should be able to work independently.


If you have difficulty logging in to Google Classroom please contact the school rather than using an alternative email. Any accounts which are not will be removed for safeguarding reasons.


For home learning we will be following the same timetable as in school.

Daily - Maths, English, Reading Comprehension, Handwriting, Spelling and Arithmetic.

Weekly - Topic, RE (Religious Education), PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and 2 lots of PE (Physical Education).


Home learning should take 3 - 4 hours per day broken down roughly as:

Maths                   45 minutes - 1 hour

English                 45 minutes - 1 hour

Comprehension   15 - 30 minutes

Handwriting         15 minutes

Spelling               15 minutes

Arithmetic            15 minutes

Plus the weekly subjects which are 45 minutes - 1 hour each day.


All Google Classroom work will be posted for 8:00 am daily and needs to be completed by 4:00 pm on the same day. This will be marked and returned by 4:00 pm the next day. Work can still be completed after this time but will be marked as 'late'. Most work follows on from the previous lesson, so all lessons should be completed in order.


We expect that all children will complete the home learning tasks to their best ability.


Work will be graded out of 100 and there will be a teacher comment to let you know if you need to repeat any work. Quizzes which automatically mark will give you a score which is 1 point per question.


Spelling Shed - Set on a Friday as normal from 8/1/21

Mathswatch - Set on a Friday as normal from 15/1/21


School staff are working extremely hard to put together these resources. We appreciate that home learning is not the same as being in school, but our children deserve the best education we can give them. If you have any feedback that you feel can improve the home learning for children, please feel free to get in touch using the contact form below.
