* Your outdoor activity should take place in your garden or during your ONE trip outside of your house for exercise. Your indoor and outdoor activity could be linked to history / geography / science / computing / music / PE / art / design tech or food tech. Maybe try a different subject each day.

During this time, when children may not be in school, we have devised some suggested home-learning activities that you could complete at home to support your children’s learning, leisure time and routines.

  • For Parents/Carers: - Create a weekly timetable with your child to decide on which subjects to practice with your child each day. - Create a daily timetable. Routines are important for children.
  • Some suggestions: wake up, wash your hands for 20 seconds, brush your teeth and eat breakfast.
    Practise your timetables and read a book. Have lunch, complete a task from below and a short
    fitness routine. Play a game, free time, eat dinner, read. - Keep fit indoors. Create a daily fitness routine to complete with your children.
  • Some suggestions: 10-star jumps, 10 sit ups, 10 push ups, 10 squats

  • CGP books
    All children have their CGP books at home and have had guidance from their teachers about which sections to prioritise. We would like the children to complete an hour of work per day for Maths, Grammar & Punctuation and Reading. If the children complete their CGP books for any subject then they should begin to look at former SATs papers on: https://www.satspapers.org.uk/Page.aspx?TId=5

This type of calendar is called a lunar calendar. Legend says that every New Year’s Eve, a monster named Nian would terrorize villages. Most people would hide in their homes when he came. One day, a boy
decided to fight and scared Nian off using firecrackers. To this day, firecrackers are still used to celebrate.
