Possible home learning tasks


In light of the current situation, we would like to offer as much support as possible in regards to home learning to children, parents and carers in the event of a school closure.  Paper home learning packs will be available today for all year 4 children (those children in school will be sent home with a pack). This will provide a range of activities for children to complete whilst at home. 


Please keep checking our class twitter page for updates also.  There are a great many learning opportunities arising through You Tube and social media platforms.  I will do my best to continuously update our Twitter feed to alert you all to these.


In addition to this, children will be reminded of login details for all online platforms that we have access to. Please see below for links to these

  1. Create a glossary for the text - there is lots of technical vocabulary to choose from.

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter break and got to enjoy the sunshine in your gardens or on your daily walks.  Look below for some suggested activities for you to complete this week.  Don't forget to tweet what you have been up to!


  • Take a look at the Blue Peter make, bake, create web page and choose something to make  - can you make your own how to video?
  • Help plan the days meals and snacks - create a shopping list and use a supermarket website to find prices for your items - how much would your shopping list cost?
  • Write a letter to your future self.  Talk about what life is like right now, what you miss and what you would like your future self to remember to appreciate (like hugs with your extended family) - These would be a great addition to our school time capsule!


Life skills are equally important so this week I would like you to help out at home by:

  • Tidying your room
  • Making your bed each day
  • Helping to prepare a meal 
  • Do something to make each member of your house smile (e.g. pay them a compliment, help a younger sibling to complete their learning task)
