Home Learning

A few days of absence


If your child is away from school for a few days and they are well enough to complete school work, please:

  • hear them read their school reading book and a book of their choice from home;
  • help them to learn their times-tables. They have a log-in for Times Tables Rockstars which they can use. If you are choosing to help them, start with the easy ones: x 0, x1, x10, x2, x5; then progress onto the more difficult: x 3, x, 4, x, 6, x 9, x 11; and then, only if they are ready, help them to learn: x 7, x8 and x 12.
  • you might also use the internet to research any topics that are studied in school. Please see the planning documents section of the class webpage.


A week or more away from school


If your child is away from school for a week or more, it is important that they access the curriculum that their classmates are benefitting from. With this in mind, it is advisable that they have  a daily maths and English lesson, and complete a science, history and geography lesson during the week. Having plenty of exercise will also be important, providing they are fit enough.
