Learning at Home
On these pages you can find a complete curriculum for your children that mirrors exactly what we are teaching in school. We have chosen 'Journey' by Aaron Becker as a picture book that the whole school will be studying this term. Click on the year group pages below to find all the resources you will need. If you don’t have internet access or a printer and would like a paper copy, please ring or email school and we will deliver a set of work to you. We would love to see examples of the work the children are completing at home, please email, tweet or add photos of their learning on our Facebook page.
There are lots of other free resources available online. We recommend the following to support your children at home.
For children in Nursery, Reception and KS1 you can find daily Read Write Inc. phonics lessons on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ?safe=true
Quentin Blake Art Challenge
Over the lockdown period, Sir Quentin Blake created ten rainbow illustrations inspired by all the rainbows he was spotting in people’s windows. In his drawings, he imagines the rainbow as an object – something that can be touched or held.
We would like every New Park pupil to create their own imaginative version of Sir Quentin’s drawings, so we can create a wonderful and positive display at school to show us coming together during this time. Your challenge is to think of how a rainbow
could morph into something else. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
During school closure the BBC are providing daily lessons and resources on their Bitesize revision pages. Every day there are three lessons available for each year group. The lessons start with a video and then have tasks and activities for the children to complete. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

The online classroom is completely free and includes video lessons, quizzes and worksheets for primary and secondary. https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/schedule
Reading at home with your children remains one of the best things you can do to support their learning. Why not encourage them to listen to an audiobook too! Audible have made all their children’s audiobooks free - they can be found at https://stories.audible.com/discovery
Children should continue to read at home daily – books are best but newspapers, magazines and web pages all count too!
Our Space Mission Instant Recall Facts (SMIRFs) sheets are available below – please practise these maths skills with your children. They should be able to complete all tasks/answer questions within three seconds
