Home Learning

Hello from us all at Team HT

Still image for this video
Our teachers have created Home Learning for our pupils to work from. These include activities from across the curriculum and are linked to current class topics. We have provided a range of online and off-screen activities. We hope you have fun carrying out your learning at home. Please keep all your work, with pictures to share when we see you again.

Axel Scheffler, author, and the illustrator of the Gruffalo and many other Julia Donaldson books, has illustrated a free digital information book all about coronavirus. This free book can be found by clicking here.

 

Mr. Bennett reads stories YouTube videos

 

When schools shut due to the COVID-19 outbreak I made a pledge to read a story a day and post it on YouTube for children to watch at home. Sharing stories is one of my favourite things to do at school and I wanted to continue doing it, as well as giving children learning at home a bit of structure, exposure to different stories and parents 5 minutes peace! Now YR, Y1 and Y6 have returned to school I have decided to stop my daily stories. I'll continue to post stories when I come across ones I want to share and I'm sure there will be a few guest readers from time to time too... Thanks for watching, I'm glad I was able to share so many stories have hopefully make lock-down a little easier and more interesting. Stay safe, Mr. Bennett
