Activities to do at Home

We know you will all be reading regularly!

At the top of the page you can see the topic web for each term.  The activities below can help you find out more about each topic.  There are maths and English pages too:

The BBC Bitesize Website and the BBC Newsround pages are a great place to visit too:

Finally, don't forget TTRockstars and Hit the Button for practising your times tables and number facts:

  • Virtual School LibraryOak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust have come together to launch a Virtual School Library to keep children reading during lockdown.

  • Oxford Owls eBooksFREE eBook Library from Oxford Owl for Home. This has been developed for children aged 3–11 years old. All of the eBooks are tablet-friendly. Just register or log in to start reading.



Useful Information

We would love every child to become immersed in books and become avid readers! Regular reading at home and at school will build confidence and hopefully develop a passion for this wonderful lifeskill!

With this in mind, we expect the children to record at least 3 reads in their home school diaries every week and that a parent or carer initials that page weekly. Sharing books with an adult is so valuable and really helps to develop comprehension and higher-order reading skills. 

We ask the children to ensure their home school diaries and reading book are brought to school daily so we can communicate with parents/carers easily and promptly.

Homework will follow a fortnightly timetable of maths one week and then English the following week. The children will write their homework in their home school diaries. This will be set on a Tuesday and expected to be completed by the following Monday.

The children will have a weekly list of spellings that will be in their diaries. We will work on those spelling rules at school throughout the week. They will also be on Spelling Shed.

Spelling Shed is a fantastic way to practise those tricky words! Compete online and try and beat your best score! Login details are in home school diaries.  

In addition to set homework in maths, we highly recommend battling your friends at TT-Rockstars and improving your times table knowledge. These login details are also in home school diaries.



Carousel now takes place on a Tuesday. The children will learn Spanish, Drama and Music in these sessions with specialist teachers for half a day.
