Weekly home learning topics

Our themed home learning topics complement activities that have been set by school. These may be of help particularly if you are trying to manage the needs of several children or have limited access to the internet.

Literacy activities

Here are some ideas for reading and writing activities at home, including creating a spinner to encourage talking about books. There's also a video that explains how to use the spinners. Thanks to Catherine from Queensbridge Primary School and Joe for sharing this.

Reading

We have collated websites currently offering free digital texts to support families and schools in keeping children reading while they may not have much access to reading books. The reading resources padlet is organised into categories including ebooks, audio books and texts. Also, these freely available digital texts provide examples for each year group, including fairy tales and stories from other cultures.

Online resources

We've put together some useful resources for literacy and other curriculum areas. These resources are presented using Padlet - read instructions on how to use them.
