Home Learning Activities

If your child is required to self-isolate due to Covid-19 please find below a range of activities and resources that you can access and do at home. Please see the homework grid and activities for your child's class - there is lots on there to keep you busy and some tasks can be done more than once. You can also practise spellings and phonics as well as reading.

In the event of your child's bubble being closed to self isolate more information will be provided relating to online learning and lessons.

Please listen to your child read each day and share the story together. Children could also write book reviews of their favourite books, create posters about their favourite characters or write their own stories/comics. They don’t have to just read fiction books, it could be newspapers, magazines, fact books or anything similar.


If your child has a particular interest in a subject, place, animal or person they could complete a project about it. They can research on the internet and present what they have learnt in many different ways. They can present on paper, they can create a powerpoint presentation, they could make a model – the possibilities are endless!
