Inside each pack are home learning sheets with activities. These activities can be repeated on a daily basis. They can be recorded in the book or sheets provided as part of the pack. Year 6 children have been provided with past papers. There are also a list of websites that you can visit and programmes your children can watch.

The home learning books will be checked by the class teacher on your child's return to school.

Your child should be doing the following activities each day;

  • Reading / Spelling / Sight words
  • Practising their Times Tables (Especially Yr 4 children)
  • A Writing activity
  • A Maths activity

Should you have any questions you can contact your child's class teacher using the email address for their year group. Emails will be responded to during working hours.
