Week of 13th July

Thank you for continuing with supporting your child at home with their learning. As you are aware, Home Learning is changing as more children return to school. Teachers have done a brilliant job of providing daily home learning tailored to what the children would have been covering in school; unfortunately this level of personalisation is unsustainable following the phased introduction of additional children back to school. We deliberated about how best to adapt the home learning and have decided to try using and adapting resources created by Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust in conjunction with some tailored lessons to the Topics your child would have covered during this term.

We understand that the Home Learning needs to work for you and your child, and therefore we have put some alternative suggestions below, should you rather explore those. We are now displaying the home learning for the week rather than each day, as feedback suggested parents would prefer this so they could rearrange the week’s tasks to fit them and their child. Please, only do what you can of the suggestions below – do what works best for you and your child.

With thanks to Robin Hood Multi Academy Trust for their Learning Projects on which most of the weekly Reading, Spelling, Writing and Maths tasks are based.
