By now you should have collected your home learning packs with a range of different learning activities for the children to complete until the end of term. In addition to the learning packs this page has been set up to support parents further with home-schooling until further notice. Please email the class teacher or school office any questions regarding the home learning and staff will do their best to help out.

How do I use this page?

  1. Take a look at the Cornerstones Long Term Plans on the Curriculum Overview page.
  2. Check the Cornerstones Long Term Plans and see what your child would have been learning if they had been in school.
  3. Pick a topic area and find a link (see below) that may support that learning or use a search engine to research that area as a team!
  4. Use the exercise books in your home learning packs to keep a log of what you have done so your child’s teacher can bridge any gaps when normality resumes!

Also, encourage your children to email their teacher some of the wonderful things they are doing. As teachers may share some of the work and ideas on their class blogs to help keep everyone engaged and entertained!

School closure is also a time for your child to create a project around an area that they are really interested in. They could research the topic and report their findings. They could make a short film, design a set of revision cards to share with their friends. They could make a model, write a song or poem linked to the topic! Children are encouraged to complete Reading Eggs (EYFS/KS1), Reading Eggspress (KS2) and Mathletics daily. See links below:

Please mail the school office if you need your child’s login details.

Many of these companies have waived the fee for use of their site during the Covid-19 outbreak. We thank them for this gesture.
