Here is a suggested timetable for working at home:



You can use the following online resources:

Maths- MyMaths (Topics you find difficult), Top Marks and TT Rockstars

English- Spelling Shed, Reading/Writing activities from below

Computing- Scratch,, Google Drive (Finish South American slides)

PE- BBC Super Movers (, Home Sports Activities (see document below) Daily 30-minute PE lessons with 'The Body Coach' (

General Curriculum- Purple Mash


You could also research something which interests you about our topic,  South America. It could be a Slides document, a poster or a booklet about a different animal or country to the ones you researched in class.


You might also keep a diary of how you feel and your experience of such a unique event. 


You should continue reading a range of books, magazines and articles. When you finish reading a book, you could also do some writing based on it. For example, you could write a newspaper report, write a character description, create an alternative ending or write a book review. 


Finally. there are a range of documents attached below with different activities you could complete.


We look forward to seeing you when the schools reopen. In the meantime, we wish you and everyone in your family well.
