Welcome to our Home Learning Zone
Here you will be equipped with lots of useful resources, activities and links to continue your learning journey at home including:
- A link to the Video Centre where you will find videos of activities and guidance on how to approach tasks.
- A link to the Class Blog which is where we will communicate with you. You can access your class blog and post questions or comments you have about the activities you are completing. In order to access the blog and start to communicate with your teacher you will require your blogging username and password which your teacher will provide.
- Educational Website Links to promote Maths, Literacy and other curriculum areas.
We hope you are finding the home learning books and homework packs that we provided useful at home. As well as these we will continue to update you with more home learning activities via our weekly school newsletter from Mrs Reilly (Head of School).
- Daily lesson power points to support families, if children are isolating at home.
If you have any questions or need additional support please do get in touch with your child's class teacher via the class home learning email accounts. Together we can form a strong partnership to provide children with the greatest opportunities both at school and at home to ensure their future possibilities are endless.
In addition to the activities on this webpage you will also find homework set in your child's home work book each half term (some activities may ask you to refer to this website). Sounds, words and age appropriate books to read at home together. Please write a comment in your child's home reading diary (which also provides guidance) to tell us how you got on and to earn rewards. In KS1 children will also be set weekly spellings to practice at home in preparation for a spelling quiz. The spellings will be sent home in a spelling book with additional support of how to practise at home and also sent via Marvellous ME so you have a electronic copy.

Below we have provided links to useful websites that we recommend for you and your child to use together at home. Remember to discuss e-safety with your child if they use the internet independently.
Story Time Phonics for Nursery and Reception
All children in Reception have been learning a new sound every day using the Story Time Phonics approach (this follows the same order as Letters and Sounds).
It is important that Reception children continue (Nursery children can begin) to practise saying and writing the sounds and therefore we have provided some resources to help.
Visit the Video Resource Centre on our school website to join in with the Phonic Fairy's letter and sounds activities.
