Home Learning



In September 2020 we returned to full-time education following the Covid-19 partial-closure in March. Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted experience, there is the possibility that an individual child, a class bubble, or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time. We have therefore put in place a plan for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education. This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’

If a child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, the school will do all it can to support children and will provide paper packs of learning.

Where funding can be accessed, remote devices (eg, laptops) and/or 4G connections will be sought, particularly for disadvantaged children.  Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies will still be available.

Many thanks to Crossgates Primary School for sharing their template.

When we locked down in April, Remote Learning was something for the future. The staff have worked tirelessly in ensuring that if your child is self-isolating or if the bubble bursts and the children are learning from home, that there learning continues.


Remote Learning Action Plan




Early Years



Twinkl – Online resources which have been made free for duration of closures.  May need to sign up but well worth it. This is split into subject and topics.

Classroom Secrets – Online resources which have been made free for duration of closures.  May need to sign up but well worth it. This is split into subject and topics.  Also has interactive games to use.

Audible – Wide selection of free streaming stories for the duration of closures (doesn’t work on internet explorer).

Creative Learning – Some amazing ideas for creative learning at home

Top Marks – Loads of online games for maths (I’ve linked to hit the button which is great for learning times tables).

and to games for the age range

BBC Bitesize – KS1

Read Theory – This needs signing up to and a ‘class’ setting up but I really rate it.  Child can read then answer questions which the adult can see on their portal.  Good way of tracking.

Family Zone – Made by the literacy trust and split into age groups.  Comprehensive portal for literacy based stuff.

EYFS Ambassador Blog – gives ideas for day plans and activities. Some really good stuff.

Tate Kids – Some great art activities and ideas

Maths with Parents –

Teach Your Monster to Read – name sums it up

White Rose Maths – Some planned lessons and resources for maths

Literacy Shed – loads of online vids with writing ideas and also links to maths and spelling but I think these need signing up to.

Pobble 365 – A picture a day with writing ideas and questions.  Might be a bit advanced for 5 year old but would be good discussion starters or “Tell me a story about this…” type activities.
