Summer 2020 Home Learning
The resource below may be useful in explaining to the children what is happening in the world at the moment.
Welcome to your new Home Learning Page. Here, Miss Darby and Mrs Austin will be posting regular activities for you to be doing whilst you are at home.
You have all taken home a literacy and numeracy book to record your work in and a maths and literacy mat to help you if needed.
Below, we have added a maths and literacy grid, which contains lots of activities that you can be getting on with at any time. We have also added a list of useful websites for you to use. TTRockstars is brilliant for times tables so make sure you definitely give that one a go!
Please make sure you read as often as you can and if you finish a book, we would love you to email us and tell us all about it. It would also be really good if you wrote a daily diary, in a separate book, to keep a note of all you have been doing. We will be doing this too, during this extraordinary time.
We will miss you all and look forward to hearing about all you've been doing, via email.
Please look after yourselves, be kind, be careful and be happy.
Mrs Austin and Miss Darby

We wanted to share this lovely poem with you all.....
The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World
The world it got so busy,
There were people all around.
They left their germs behind them;
In the air and on the ground.
These germs grew bigger and stronger.
They wanted to come and stay.
They didn’t want to hurt anyone -
They just really wanted to play.
Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,
Or tickled your throat or your nose.
They could make you cough and sneeze
And make your face as red as a rose.
And so these germs took over.
They started to make people ill,
And with every cough we coughed
More and more germs would spill.
All the queens and kings had a meeting.
“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.
And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,
Just so these germs couldn’t spread.
We couldn’t go to cinemas
Or restaurants for our tea.
There was no football or parties,
The world got as quiet as can be.
The kids stopped going to school,
The mums and dads went to work less.
Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush
Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!
Dads started teaching the sums,
Big brothers played with us more,
Mums were in charge of homework
And we read and played jigsaws galore!
The whole world was washing their hands
And building super toilet roll forts!
Outside was quiet and peaceful,
Now home was the place for all sports.
So we played in the world that was home
And our days filled up with fun and love,
And the germs they grew smaller and smaller
And the sun watched from up above.
Then one morning the sun woke up early,
She smiled and stretched her beams wide.
The world had been fully spring cleaned,
It was time to go back outside!
We opened our doors oh so slowly
And breathed in the clean and fresh air.
We promised that forever and always
Of this beautiful world we’d take care!
