Welcome to our Home Learning Zone. 

Dear Parents/Carers,

Hopefully you have enjoyed the work packs that everyone collected and now we have some exciting online work to complete.

We hope you are all well and getting used to the different way of life, which we hope will end soon. We appreciate all the work the children have done so far and have enjoyed looking at it.

It has been great to see your children’s learning on Purple Mash. If they’ve yet to start, log-on and see the range of activities that there are to do. When you are logged on to Purple Mash click on the sharing tab where you will find up to date blogs and display boards that share work across school. Take a look, your children’s work might be being celebrated. The blogs give more information on how to complete tasks and navigate the website.


We’re hoping that you are managing to get out for some exercise in this lovely weather. When you’re out for a walk with your children play ‘spot the difference’. Think about all the different types of houses and their door numbers. Things to discuss with your children: Are the numbers even or odd? Do the numbers go in order? Are the numbers increasing or decreasing?


We are all thinking of you and missing you everyday.

Make a combination creature

You need two or three people, a piece of paper and pens

  • the first person secretly draws a head with a neck and then folds the paper down so the head is hidden but a little bit of neck is showing
  • the second person secretly draws a body on to the neck and then folds the paper down so the body can’t be seen (just two tiny lines to show were the body ends)
  • the next person draws the legs

Open up the picture and see what your creature looks like!
