Home Learning Information
As the school is now closed for the vast majority of children, we have put together a folder of Home Learning Tasks linked to each week when the children would have been learning in school. In addition, we have also included some more general resources for each year group alongside links to websites and other learning platforms.
BBC Bitesize Daily
The BBC have now launched a new site: BBC Bitesize Daily. This site contains online lessons with complimentary activities for children in all age groups. Resources have been developed in collaboration with the Department of Education and other trusted education providers in order to provide curriculum led activities and programming to complement the remote learning being offered by schools and to keep up every child’s educational momentum.

Real PE at Home!
In school we use real PE as part of our PE lessons. real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.
It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from next week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.
There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical wellbeing but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months. Here are the details to access real PE at home:
