IMPORTANT: Home learning during school closure

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the school has had to close. However, this does not mean the children’s learning needs to stop. Below is a list of what the children should be doing during their time at home.

Purple Mash

This will be the main access to learning from home. Children will be set ToDo tasks that they can complete. This includes Coding, which the children have been working through this term. Children can also upload their learning to a class display board for the teacher to view. Children should check daily for new activities or any updates.


Children should continue to read daily. Keep a log of what your child has read. This can be more than just their reading book, it can be magazines, the news, other reading books at home. Try to use My Book Blog daily.


You have been set an Enterprise project to complete whilst school is closed.

Year 6 revision

Please complete one page of the Maths, Reading and SPAG revision books.

Year 6 children will be able to access Rising Stars – Achieve SATs Success online. This will enable children to revise and practice for their SATS tests.

You have also been provided with a pack to complete. Please complete two pages daily.



As well as this, we recommend the following websites to help keep your child’s learning moving forward:


Twinkl have made their resources free for one month

BBC Bitesize

White Rose Hub This is the scheme that we primarily use for maths. They will be adding resources free next week.

You might want to think about giving yourself a timetable so your weekdays are routine as possible and similar to that in school. A typical day might look like this:


9:00 – 9:30

Start of day activity

9:30 – 10:30


11:00 – 12:00


1:00 – 3:00
