Thank you for supporting your children during this period of school closures.

Summer Term Home Learning

Each week we will send home a ‘Learning Project’ which has a variety of English and Mathematics core learning tasks. Ideally, one of each of these tasks should be completed daily.  (1 reading, 1 writing, 1 maths and 1 spelling). There are other learning activities to choose from: Art, Music, Science, Computing of which we would recommend choosing 1 per day. Each ‘Learning Project’ also has a theme for example ‘My Family’ which gives your child the chance to do some research and be creative in how they present their learning during the week. Also try to do 1 physical activity per day.

 

Look at our main ‘Home Learning‘ page for general advice about Home Learning.

Children need to still be reading their books at home every day, and can use Oxford Reading Buddies, online articles and eBooks for additional texts.

SATs Prep

Children who have CGP books at home should be using these to access SATs style questions and build their understanding of topics already covered. Revision using both these and the orange Collin’s Reading homework books are great tools in ensuring your children are maintaining their ability to answers questions correctly and to ensure they don’t forget how teachers have advised that they answer questions. Although SATs are no longer going ahead, children will still need this key understanding for their transition into secondary school.
