To support your child's learning during school closures we have uploaded  Home Learning folders for each year group(please scroll to the bottom of the page)which have been supplied by two companies;  Classroom Secrets and Twinkl, both online learning systems that we use as part of our daily lessons and planning.

Additionally there is a list of activities your child could do in anticipation of returning to school, hopefully in the summer term! See 'Home learning activitiies Armoury class', 'Home learning activitiies Castle class' and 'Home learning activities Mariteau class'.

We have also incuded the following link which may be of help should you need to explain the Coronavirus to your child.

There are also ideas for activities etc. on the 'Supporting Learning at Home' page of this website.

Free Field Studies Council home resources to encourage fun and active outdoor learning

In light of school closures FSC wants to be able to support teachers and parents while continuing to promote outdoor learning for children.We understand this is a challenging time and have therefore created some simple activities which children can do at home, to help them learn while also having fun. Click on the documents below.

Premier League Football Fun

There are also some fun activities, football related, for children to complete, click on the sheet below, there is also an answer sheet.

Baking activities

In Years 3 and 4 children use standard units kg and g as well as temperature using °C. They measure and compare mass using these units and in Year 4 convert between units e.g. grams to kilograms and vice versa.In Years 5 & 6 children develop their learning of measures and in addition to using and reading scales for grams and kilograms, they now learn to convert between units, i.e. kilograms to grams and vice versa

When baking with your child talk about the ingredients, how much of each you need; ask questions, for example is there more flour or more sugar, get them to read the scales, time the baking.

Maths activities

Make a maths game

In Year 3 children count from 0 in multiples of 2, 3, 4,5,8,10,50 and 100.  In Year 4 they develop their counting and count in multiples of 6, 7,9,25 and 1000. The maths game can include any of the counting objectives the children learn; keep it simple and fun so that the children can bring it in to share with their friends.

In Years 5 & 6 children develop their knowledge and understanding of the number systems and begin to learn about negative numbers and Roman numerals to 1000.

The maths game can include any of the counting objectives the children learn; keep it simple and fun so that the children can bring it in to share with their friends.

Make a map

Year 3 children learn to identify right angles, recognise that two right angles make a half-turn, three make three quarters of a turn and a complete turn, they identify horizontal and vertical lines and pairs of perpendicular and parallel lines. 

Year 4 children learn to describe positions on a 2-D grid as coordinates in the first quadrant, they describe movements between positions as translations of a given unit to the left/right and up/down.

In Year 5 children learn to convert between different units of metric measure (for example, kilometre and metre; centimetre and metre; centimetre and millimetre), measure and calculate the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes in centimetres and metres

In Year 6 children learn use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to three decimal places

Talk about your map, what will it need to show?  Discuss the need to make the map clear.  When drawing the map use directional and positional language; describe position, direction and movement, including whole, half, quarter and three quarter turns. Use  language including: left and right, top, middle and bottom, on top of, in front of, above, between, around, near, close and far, up and down, forwards and backwards, inside and outside. Ask children if they can draw their map to scale, or calculate the area or perimeter of buildings on the map. 

What about making a 3D map!!
