Home Learning Resources

Learning at home

 

This Home Learning Page will be helpful if your child is at home as they are unwell, waiting for test results or taking a 2 week self-isolation.

Aim to do an English based reading and writing activity daily and a Maths activity. Then look at Science,  RE, History, Geography or Art so that your child has a balance of activities. On this page there are many good educational websites for you to use.

Please also find at the end of this page Home Learning Grids in a number of subjects – Reading, Maths, Art, Geography etc.

These include activities you can do without a computer.

Top Tips to encourage children to read – A list of ways to help primary-aged children read at home.
