We ask that parents support the school and their children by accessing the Mastery Maths homework guide.

The homework guide and guide for parents will help adults become familiar with the strategies children use in school and provide children with the opportunity to access tasks and content that they would in a lesson.

TT Rockstar

We also ask that children access the Timestable Rockstar website and participate in activities for an hour across the week. Weekly challenges will be set and children will also participate in TT testing every Friday.

English – Bedrock Vocabulary – Learning

Your child should have received an email with their log in details. If your child has not received these, please contact Mr. Hayden on the email at the top of the page.

Please aim to complete atleast one lesson / reading comprehension task a week.

Bedrock learning is a great assessment tool which identifies vocabulary that your child is secure with, developing and does not know. Once the initial assessment is complete, your child can access a series of lessons. Please note that lessons should not be rushed through and completed all in one go. If children are completing too many lessons in quick concession, they will be made to wait 24 hours before accessing the next lesson in the sequence.


Headstart spellings: Children have been sent home with a full pack. If they misplace their spellings, please contact Mr Hayden on the email above or leave a note in their planners. Thank you.

Parents can further support their children with their reading through:

Predicting – What do they think this text is about?

Clarify – What new vocabulary have they experienced? Meaning?

Question – What would they still like to know?

Summary – In their words, what is the text about?

Headstart spellings to continue as normal following the Headstart Spelling guide.

Remote Learning 

As we continue to work through the school year, we hope that we do not have to close our bubble. However, in the event that we do, (or that your child needs to self-isolate away from school) work will be provided so that your child can continue their learning at home. Please visit the ‘Remote learning’ section of the webpage and go to Year 5.
