Home Learning Zone

We know that missing school isn’t easy for your children —or for you. But we also know that there are simple ways to turn unexpected time at home into exciting opportunities for children to learn, think, and grow.

We have put together some ideas and some links that we think your children will enjoy and should be able to be completed with little or no adult support. However, it is always fun to learn together!!

The Year 5 and 6 Team

Year 5/6 Learning at Home

As our Year 5 children continue to learn from home, we have made some changes to our weekly learning activities.

We strongly recommend that you commit to a sense of routine during these closure days and enable your child to complete the learning activities given; we all benefit from routine and structure and this can be particularly beneficial during unusual and concerning times such as these. We acknowledge that many parents will be working at home and the learning activities are designed to fit in with your own busy schedules.

We would like all our Year 5 children to complete the Core Learning tasks set on the Weekly Learning activities Grid each day. 

The children can then choose additional activities from the second grid if they wish or enjoy activities from the websites linked.
