Supporting your child's learning at home



Remember to read at least five times a week and to complete the weekly reading homework task.  Record these on your home reading record sheet.  Reading books should be brought into school each day.  Reading books and home reading record sheets need to be brought into school on Friday, so books can be changed and children can receive their Read 5, Hi 5 sticker for completing their reading homework.

Children will initially be given letter formation sheets to complete as homework.  This will eventually change to spellings.  Please support your child in completing these activities.


Your child should also have logins to access the following to support learning:

Purple Mash, Education City and TT Rockstars.

These have a variety of games and activities to support a range of learning opportunities.


Some useful links to sites to further support learning at home:



Teach your Monster to Read is a fun interactive game that covers everything from letters and sounds to reading full sentences.


Oxford Owl e-books have around 100 free e-books that you can access, including support for phonics learning.


Audible offer a range of audiobooks for children that can be downloaded for free.



If you are a Derbyshire Library member you can search and download free e-books from their website including children's books.


White Rose Maths  is the scheme we follow in school.  They offer daily 'home learning' lessons for years 1-9.  Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child complete the activity successfully.

BBC Bitesize are including catch up lessons that can be accessed from home in Maths and English.  It's definitely worth looking at!


The Literacy Trust has a range of really useful resources to support literacy learning in their free family zone section.  These include writing prompts for stories, a range of online stories to listen to and watch and other recommended sites and apps.


 Derbyshire Music Hub have activities and resources that can be downloaded for free and done at home.  They are accessible to anyone, regardless of musical ability.

Starters for STEM are activities that you can use at home to help children develop their science, technology, engineering and maths skills.  These activities are easy to resource and provide children with the stimulus to talk about the world around them.


For those of you that are Lego fans, the Lego challenge calendar gives you a new challenge to invent, create and build something each day for 30 days
