Home Learning

As we enter a rather strange stage here are some activties to do at home to continue your child's learning. We suggest some of the activities should be practised daily and so this list will stay the same. We will also put other activities on the website that will change each week, so please check the website. Additionally we have also added a list of webiste that you can use to support your child's learning.

Many families are aiming to do 2 hours a day. These are very unusual times and I know many of you are also trying to work from home. Please don't worry if you are doing less than this and there is no expectation to complete all of the tasks each week. Try to do some phonics/ spelling, reading, writing and maths each day but I appreciate that some days this cannot happen. Remember that board games, craft, cooking and playing in the garden can also incorporate a lot of valuable learning. For those of you who would like some additional activities, there are some handy home learning packs for each year group on twinkl.co.uk. 

Daily Activities

  • 99 club - Please download the sheet from our website under curriculum, 99 club. Your child will know which 99 club they are on. 
  • Statutory spellings - Your child has been given a sheet with their personal statutory spellings on them. If your child has misplaced this sheet here is a generic list.

  • Daily Reading. It doesn't have to be a reading book it could be a newspaper article leaflet, magazine or comic
  • Battle of the books. We appreciate you may finish the book you are on so please see the list below. 
  • Mental maths. Using number cards 1 - 20 (these can just be 20 pieces of paper with a number between 1 and 20 written on them) get the children to choose 2 and add them together. How many can they do in 30sec. Repeat this with subtraction. Can you beat your previous time? To try and challenge yourself try by turning the number/s into multiples of 10.
  • Multiplication tables practice- please find the document below. They have 2min to complete each test.

As we can not change reading books at the moment the website oxfordowl offers a wide range of colour banded reading books online. I know this isn't perfect so please remember to read real books aswell but this will help some children to access reading independently. 

Clicking on the the link 


then click books, elearning books. Then in the text click on elearning books, this will open a new tab. CLick on class login the user name is bt class 2 and the passwords is Class 2. 

For some reason if you stay on this link it reduces the amount of books you can choose, so at this point go back to the first tab (window) and reclick on elearning books in the text and it will take you through to a library of books. 

In the new window click on levels, book bands, then choose your child's level, a book they would like to read and then have fun reading. 

If you have any problems please let the office know and i will try and help. 



This week in geography I would like you to find out about the volcanic eruption, that happened on the White Island, New Zealand in December 2019. I would like you to use what we learnt in English regarding Newspaper reports and write your own newspaper report about the event.

Miss Long's Activity

As I was walking my dog this morning I saw a painted pebble on the floor. The pebble was bright yellow with a smiley face. I therefore set you the challenge of making a possituve pebble or something similar. It might be a picture of something you saw when out on a daily walk e.g. a daffodil or a bird. It might be some positive words that you saw written and displayed in someone's window. I look forward to seeing the photos. It would be wonderful to share them and display them in the peaceful garden when we return.
