Further Information

The goverment has published the following advice for parents and carers:


The government has also proposed the following sites to support home learning:


The Department for Education has the following YouTube channel for phonics: 

This is 12 weeks of lessons using the same Letters and Sounds programme that we use in school.


A teacher-favourite website, Twinkl, is also providing free resources for parents and carers:

Each day you'll find a new set of daily activities to get involved with. Book readings, live lessons, positive news updates and more will be posted each day. Activities will also be listed the day before - giving you enough time to get prepped and set up for the next day's learning.


Third Space Learning have put together these useful Maths guides for parents:
✔️  Division 
✔️  Fractions 
✔️  Comparing Fractions, Decimals and Percentages 
✔️  Multiplication is a collection of links from our partners at Sheffiled Family Learning.


If you haven't completed the Maths and English activity books, try to do a couple of pages each day; just work through them from the start. 


We fully appreciate that this is an unprecedented time in which you and your children will be having to rapidly adjust to a completely different way of life. We are all juggling many roles – as parents, workers, partners, friends, daughters, sons and neighbours.  What works for someone else’s family may not work for you. Do your best in the context of your unique situation and do what works best for your family and your child. Some children will benefit from a structured day and a strict routine; others will need a more nurturing and creative approach. There is no right and no wrong way to ‘home school’ your child. Some days will be more productive than others. You know your child best. You know their limits and their capabilities. Above all, be kind to yourself, be kind to each other and take each day as it comes.
