Home Learning After Easter
After the Easter Holidays we will be posting work online weekly in the sections below. Please visit these each week to find the relevant work for your child.
Home Learning after the Whit Holiday
Our topic this half term is called ‘Commotion in the Ocean’, which is all about the sea and water. We will continue to study animals and their habitats both on land and in water.
Excellent PE Home Learning from Mrs Cochrane
To support the health and wellbeing of children while they are at home, we have recently launched The Daily Mile at Home. The aim is to encourage children to participate safely with their parents/carers in The Daily Mile – 15 minutes jogging or running, front door to front door.
Every Monday, there will be three fun challenges for children to complete during the week. This week, they are being asked to do The Daily Mile at Home and:
- check their pulse before and after The Daily Mile
- wear blue to show support for the NHS
- do a different route to normal

We all know the importance of keeping children active at school and at home. "The imovement" platform will contain resources that will support you and your children. It will help them to stay physically and mentally healthy, as well as focused and ready to learn. New resources will be added on a daily basis, and will include Quick Blasts, Active Blasts and Additional Activities to support Maths and Literacy.

During the school closure period, NumBots has extended their free trial
NumBots is an online game and playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall
and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical
foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have.
Use the log in details previously provided. They can play at home on the website
(play.numbots.com) or the NumBots app, available for Amazon, Android and Apple devices.
Children might need some help navigating to the website and entering the details but once
they’re in, they just need some quiet space to get on with the games for 5 minutes.
Maths Circle (the creators of NumBots) cannot provide username and password information to
parents, even when the school is closed.
Important: please don’t allow siblings, friends or family to answer for them but do support your
child if they’re stuck.
Little and often
In order to get the best out of NumBots children should regularly play for short bursts so we
would ask you to give them 5 minutes per day.
1. Story Mode – the emphasis is on learning the ideas and concepts behind addition and
subtraction so it features more diagrams, shapes and question styles.
2. Challenge Mode – the emphasis is more on speed of recall of key facts, like number
bonds to 10, doubling small numbers or adding & taking away in your head.
