Dear Parents,

Please note there will be no new Home Challenge grids created for Y1 children. If you choose not to send your child in to school from 3rd June, please continue to make use of the resources on this page, such as BBC Daily Lessons or Oak Academy.


Dear Parents,

We have sent home with the children a pack of English and Maths activities if you would like to practise some of the skills we have learnt. If your child finds an activity tricky, please do not worry as we will be revisiting these in the coming months.

If you would like to work on alternative activities that is completely fine and encouraged.

Here you will find the latest ideas and resources uploaded to your year group page. We have also added them to the sections below.
