Home Learning and Homework

If your child is self-isolating, please log into your child’s Microsoft Teams account. For day 1 and day 2 of self-isolation there will be an assignment set for them to complete. From day 3, they will asked to log onto Teams and access the live sessions of the day (the teacher will post a message with the times once they know your child is at home).

 If you need a reminder of any log in details, please contact your child’s class teacher.


Homework Menu Spring 1

We encourage your child to complete as many of the activities from the homework menu as they like at home, but NO LESS than 3 over the half term. This can be recorded (if appropriate) in our home books or sent to us via Class Dojo or even Evidence Me. We will ask for homework books on the last Monday of each half term in order for us to share and celebrate the learning.

Here is how we say the sounds of each letter of the alphabet:

Here is a link to our phonics songs and actions for you to share at home.
