Home Learning

Dear Parents,

As we enter this time of uncertainty and enforced school closure, I am coming across all sorts of online home learning ideas through social media, as I am sure you might be too. Keep a regular eye on this blog, as I will post ideas as they come in, or feel free to add your own!

Here are some for starters:

Audible has placed a number of books online that are free to access. You can find them here:


The Book Trust website if full of reading ideas and recommendations:

Can you use your initiative?

Are you up for a challenge? Following on from Mrs Whinnett’s PSHEE lesson on initiative, you have been set the challenge of showing us how you use your initiative outside school. Ask someone to take a photo of you to show us how you have completed the challenge and add it to this post with a description of what you did.

Top tips:

Don’t wait to be told – be a Self starter!

So…. Here are seven ways that you could show initiative

  • 1- organise something
  • 2-do it yourself
  • 3-Try something new (something you wouldn’t normally do)
  • 4-Add something
  • 5- do what needs to be one
  • 6- go above and beyond
  • 7- Be a self-starter
