To help keep your children engaged and learning at home during this time, we wanted to provide your family with some structure. We have created a weekly home learning timetable for you to follow. 

Whilst this may seem prescriptive, it's intention is to BBC Bitesize on Twitter: "Studying at home away from friends and, so please feel free to adapt it to meet your child's needs. Relevant supporting documents will be uploaded on the Homebased Learning page and on SeeSaw daily, including links to free activities and games. 

All are of a good quality and have been selected to best support the needs of this year group. However, feel free to access other Year group resources for revision, consolidation or extra challenge.   

They are all also free to use, but may require passwords that have been sent home, either as individual cards or via Marvellous Me

GUIDANCE: Making a telephone call can be an easy way to stay connected when you are unable to visit your friends or family.

  1. Decide who you are going to call. You may need to ask an adult to help you find the correct telephone number.
  2. Dial the number (or get an adult to help you).
  3. If the person you are calling answers the phone, you can begin your conversation. You could tell them who you are with, what you have been doing or how you have been feeling.
  4. If the person you are calling does not answer the phone, you can leave a message for them or simply hang up.
  5. When you have finished your conversation, end the call or hand the phone to an adult.
  • Top Tips
    You could make a list of what to talk about before making your phone call so that you don’t miss anything out!
