In the event that your child has to isolate for 2 weeks, please see below for home learning. We use the maths workbooks that follow the White Rose scheme in school. Please contact the school to arrange collection of the maths workbook. The home learning for each year group has been carefully selected so that children can work as independently as possible. However, due to the children being younger, they will need input for each task. Within the extra activities, please feel free to link this with children's interests. These are just suggestions of activities that could be completed at home and follow our topics this half term. Please also refer to our knowledge mats as they contain book suggestions and key information for each topic.
