Home Learning

A home learning timetable will be released for each year group, every week, sharing a range of activities for you to complete with your child. Scroll down this page to see the year group links. We would love you to share any work your child has done by emailing homelearning@stmartinsprimary.org.uk.

There are also many things that you can do that do not require technology or specific resources. These include:

  • Reading with your child
  • Encouraging your child’s speaking and listening skills
  • Developing and consolidating key mental mathematic skills such as times tables and number bonds
  • Encouraging children to learn outside of the classroom and explore the world around them

During the Covid-19 crisis the government have said 'No one expects parents to act as teachers or to provide the activities and feedback that a school would'. For further advice on how you can help your child continue their education at home, please see the DfE guidance.
