Learning at Home

Our home learning page is updated each half term and gives pupils who are isolating and learning from home links to lessons and interactive resources.

You can access these on any device: phone, tablet, laptop or PC.




Challenge your book and/ or comprehension skills by completing an activity on Reading Eggs - your teacher will have assigned you a task to complete.

Practice reading fluently and using expression by choosing an ebook to read for pleasure at home. Sign in or ask an adult to join Oxford Owl for free!


Try to complete a peak on Fast Phonics over on Reading Eggs whilst learning at home then practice your your techniques and any new sounds in a variety of games on Phonics Play.


We have an amazing online resource used to promote cursive handwriting in the form of Letter-join.  This can be accessed from anywhere using the link below.  The schools login details can be found inside the children's reading record.

If you would like to practice independently we promote the sentence below as it contains each letter of the alphabet!

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.


This half term our topic is plants.  Within this link please find a variety of lesson videos to compliment our learning in school.


You could even think about the games/ skills we have previously learnt in PE lessons about how to keep fit and healthy using exercises.  Could you come up with and write down your own exercise routine? We can't wait to see what you can come up with!

For example our routine would be:

First stretch up high then touch your toes (5 times), jog on the spot (30 seconds), 15 star jumps, hop on the spot (30 seconds), 15 squats and then finish by walking/ marching on the spot for 30 seconds.  Repeat 3 times.


This half term we are learning to draw landscapes, our final outcome will be creating our own version of our chosen landscape.

In school we are going to look at some famous landscape paintings, have a go at block colouring landscape templates and picking out features of a given landscape image along with building on those drawing/ colouring techniques we learnt last half term.

Paul Klee Cityscape

Draw a Manchester cityscape inspired by Paul Klee. Try to use the printing techinque, you can cut and use potatoes and other vegetables to print with.


This term we are learning about all the sacred places for each religion. Sacred is a term we use that means special so we are understanding and learning what makes each building so special to the people of each religion.


This term in computing we are learning about coding.  Watch the BITESIZE video below explaining what code is then log onto Purple Mash and Free Code Chimp and have a go at creating your own code.  Don't forget to save your work so we can see what you have been up to!
