Week of 22nd June

Dear Parents / Carers, 

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.

Reading Tasks

Spelling/Phonics Tasks


Choose a different book to read aloud to someone in your house each day and then at the end of the week decide which book was your favourite.


Find a set of instructions for planting a seed or a bean. Read these instructions out to an adult. Can you follow these instructions and plant your own bean or seed? Don’t forget to keep watering it. J


Read a non-fiction book, remember these are books that give you information on real events and the characters are real people.


Listen to the traditional story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.


Choose a magazine or newspaper and read an article to an adult and discuss what the article is about.



Have a go at this spelling game – it looks at commonly misspelled words.



Karate Cats can help you with your spelling, punctuation and grammar, see what you learn.

Draw a picture of your home and label all of the different rooms you have, then why not add all of your furniture in too!

Diary: Keep a diary of things that happen outside one of the windows in your house. Write down sentences using suffixes. Try to use exclamation marks as well.


Draw a map of one of the rooms in your house. What symbols could you have? Where will you place items?
