Learning at home

As schools prepare to close (except for those children identified by the Government), please use the links and ideas on this page to continue some learning at home.  Specific tasks will be set for your child as of Monday next week (23.03.2), which teachers will be monitoring. Facebook groups have been set up for you so that you can converse with your child's teacher. These can be found on the school's Facebook site. 

Click on Home>Learning at home> then year group to find out specific activities and task set up for your child. 




Thousands of books online, free to listen to.


Renaissance Reading

If your child is on the Renaissance Reading books, they can take quizzes using this link below. Your child will have their log in details in their home learning book or reading diary. The children are very used to taking quizzes, so will be able to do this themselves.  


If your child had books at home that they want to read, you can check to see if they are in their ZPD by typing the title in to the website below. 



Times Table Rockstars 

All children in years 2-6 have access to their TTRS account.  Their log in details can be found in their reading diary or home learning book. They can practice online. 



My Maths

There is a two step log in. Step one: 

UN: Whitleigh1

PW: tangent211

Step 2 is the child's individual password. This is in either their reading diary or home learning book. 


Writing opportunities 

Encourage your child to write a little each day.  Perhaps they could - write a character description of one of the characters in their book, label a drawing, write an alternative ending, write their own story etc. 


Pobble 365 is a fantastic website that produces a very interesting daily picture. For each day, there is a picture, a story starter, sentence challenges etc. 




Using the curriculum tab above on the website, look at the 'Year group termly overviews'. Ask your child to create a project based on the learning that that they have completed so far or continue the learning to see what else can they find out. They could create: a fact file, poster, leaflet, piece of artwork, power point presentation etc.
