Hello everyone,
Welcome to our Home Learning page.
Each week, a new Home Learning Grid will be uploaded below, with additional resources linked on the grid or underneath it. Please do not worry if you do not do all the activities or if you find some too tricky.
An email has been sent with information and details of your child’s log-ins and the different groups we will be using. I will continue to use the class email address regularly so please ensure that we have an up to date email address for you.
Please do keep in touch using the class email. I really like to see and hear about all the different things which the children have been doing. Do not hesitate to get in contact about anything to do with your child’s learning and I will do my best to help.

Hello I hope your second week at home has been fun and you’ve managed to try some of the activities on the grid. We are now at the start of the Easter holidays which will be so different this year. I know you’ll be doing lots of fun things at home over the next 2 weeks. I’ve put links to some Easter activities below if you want to try them. Also remember to look at the P1-7 general ideas page ( link at the top of this page) for lots of super ideas to try at home.

Please feel free to send any pictures or videos of any activities you have been doing. It’s been lovely to look at the ones I’ve been sent so far of work, junk modelling and even a homemade newsround!

I hope you have a relaxing and fun holiday. Please check back after the two week break for a new grid.

Miss Bell

Miss Gainford’ s week 2 work

This will take a little while to load.

Home Learning Week 1 (23rd March)

Active Spelling ideas Spelling Menu

Hello from Miss Gainford,

This week we were going to learn about Jesus the teacher. If you have a children’s bible at home see if you can find a story that Jesus told or search the internet with a grown up to find one. His special stories were called parables and he used them to teach people about important things so that they could understand them. When you have found one, draw a picture of it and discuss what it means .

Our other lesson was on staying safe at home. So again with the help of a grown up you can become a safety officer and check that all dangerous items or places are made safe.

These could include; medicines, cleaning or garden products, sharp knives, tools, glue, batteries, stair gates, electrical leads and sockets, matches and toys.

Did you find anything that needed sorting? If you did, well done.
