Welcome to our Home Learning Zone. 

July 2020

Dear All,

Please find the last Home Learning timetables before the summer break for each year group below. Each year's activities can be accessed by clicking the links under each rainbow. 

We continue to enjoy seeing the children’s learning on Purple Mash and being able to move them on in their reading on Bug Club and My Maths. We hope they are pleased to see their work up on their year and the whole school display boards within Purple Mash.

The year group and school wide blogs on Purple Mash are quite a success with lots of regular contributions. This is a great way for the children to connect with each other and share what they have been up to. We would love to see more photos of things pupils have been doing or activities they have completed, so please upload these to the most relevant blog.

We are incredibly proud of everyone, for a fantastic year both in school and as you have coped with the changes over the last few months.

 We do hope the weather allows you all to enjoy the outdoors over the coming weeks and you have even more freedom as restrictions are lifted.  We are really looking forward to seeing everyone in September, keep an eye on emails and this website for updates with regards to how we will ensure that this return is as safe and smooth as possible for everyone.

Enjoy summer safely!

Missing you lots,

Love from Everyone at Crane Park

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!
