Welcome to your Learning Page!

This page has been designed to help you organise your day so that you can continue to learn and flourish!
Please note: The daily English, Maths, Topic and Well-Being activities will be removed each evening and replaced with the activities for the following day. We advise that you download the learning for each day.

Below is a typical timetable that can help you plan out your day:
5 a-day Maths
Daily Maths Task
Daily English Task.
Today's English activity is a reading comprehension.
Children are familiar with these questions and often use highlighters to help them locate answers from the text - I'm sure they will be able to tell you and show you how it's done!
Please refer to the mark scheme because 2 mark questions require a more detailed answer.
