 Home Learning 


All activities will be shared via your child's seesaw account on Mondays at 9:00 a.m. There will also be daily messages from staff to view. You will need to download the SeeSaw app rather than the SeeSaw for parents app or login on a computer and use your QR code. 

If you don't know your child's log-in please contact me or the school and I will share this with you. 

There will be 3x Math and 3x Literacy work set over the week. A whole school project has been created so that if children have siblings they can follow the same topic. You can pick the activities you wish to complete and complete as many as you like. You will be sent this through seesaw. Please share any work you do with us on SeeSaw.



Spellings are relevant to their book band level. Please look at the colour of your child's book and practice the spellings for the relevant colour. If your child is above Blue level, please see the sheet of common high frequency words to go through.


Phonics Sounds

Phonics Play is offering free access at the moment you can access it here:


Bug Club

All children have been given 'Bug Club' log ins. This is an excellent resource where children can access books relevant to their book bands. Please take time to read with your child every day.
