Each week teachers are setting new work on this page. You can hover over the Home Learning tab (in red top right) and click on the appropriate page for your child. There will be a new page added each week.
These are the final week's pages with resources and links to the work on them (w/c 13th July):
We appreciate home-learning is not easy, particularly in these trying times, but try and use these simple tips to help you all:
1. Don't expect too much of yourselves or the children - you need to get along
2. Keep a good amount of structure to a school day: a PE session (with Joe Wicks or try some others), some maths and some English from the website
3. Read (or even listen to books) every day and enjoy it - together if you can
4. Make other learning something you and they can enjoy - try and create things: art, cooking, building, write stories, puzzles, games, quizzes, baking, singing, dancing... (see our Family Fun page)
5. Get outside to learn - if of course you're lucky enough to have space away from others
8. Give them a little time to practise important skills on our online learning sites each school day, such as MyMaths, ActiveLearn, TTRockstars...
9. Set each other little challenges to improve: spelling, times-tables, capital cities, how many star jumps in a minute...?
10. Ask for help if you need it - email your teachers through School Jotter (on the homepage login) or email the school directly through firstname.lastname@example.org or their class email account (on the class homepage)
Finally, if you do some work you're really proud of share it with us on hillsidehelp.kirkleeseducation.uk (please let us know if we can put it on our website and show the world!)

There are some really good ideas in the link below - from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) - about home learning. It gives particularly good ideas on how to keep a routine and how to enjoy good quality home-reading with children. Please have a look:
