Please also see below a list of websites which children can access to support their learning whilst at home:
U R Brainy - Free multiplication timed check.
TopMarks - BBC interactive addition and subtraction game - they like this one!
MathsFrame – Key Stage 2 - A range of maths activities/ games.
The School Run – Good for explaining maths learning and also for topic.
Wow Science – Humans, Animals, Forces and Magnets, Light and Sound
Primary Homework Help - English and SPaG activities
If you would like a better understanding of how to support your children with their reading and writing, then you can take a free course in the Sounds-Write Phonics Program that we use in school.

Time at home is also a great opportunity for children to use other skills too! Cooking, writing shopping lists, working out change from money, walks in nature, etc. Children could even make some art or sculptures from natural resources!
If they want to, children could keep a diary to share with us on their return to school.
Attached here are some number cards, which can be used to create all sorts of maths activities, such as:
- Place number cards face down on the table. Pick 3 and create a 3 digit number. Repeat. Use the created numbers to practise column addition and subtraction.
- Create 1 and 2 digit numbers from the cards and practise multiplication and division.
These are just extra ideas, but are not compulsory!
