SPS Home Learning During School Closure

SPS Aim:

It is our intention to ensure that the pupils at Stratton Primary School maintain their learning to the best of our ability from the time we close to the time we re-open. We intend to bridge the gap between where we have left the children and where we will pick them up.

We intend to provide work closely following our planned curriculum in a variety of ways rather than sending out reams of paper based work and endless links to apps etc. that lack purpose.

We anticipate parents and school staff will face challenges organising home schooling.  However, we have a comprehensive plan in place that we hope will be successful.

If pupils are unwell we do not expect them to work.


The last week of term Monday 23rd to Friday 27th March


Every pupil in SPS has received a home learning pack with work to complete in the last week of term.  This comes with an explanation and suggestions for further activities that families can do together.

Sadly, we will have to cancel the project afternoon planned for the final Thursday. If you would like to send a picture of your project, we will add it to the class pages for others to see.

With Easter round the corner, there will be an array of Easter themed activities you can do at home, such as painting eggs and making Easter cards – don’t forget you can email cards on line with messages for loved ones and friends around the country and world.


Easter holidays


Our policy is for your child to continue reading as much as possible. As you will have noticed, we have had to collect in most of your child's book band books. We now recommend reading anything and everything you have at home! A very useful additional resource is ‘Oxford Owl’ which, when you register (free), enables you to access a wide range of phonics books that generally match your children’s current colour band. Click ‘Oxford Owl for Home’ then ‘Free e-books for ages 3-11’. Browse the books by clicking ‘level’ and then choosing the ‘book band’ drop down menu which gives the colours we use in school. We recommend re-reading two books per week.


Summer term W/B Tuesday 14th April


AT 9am every Monday your child’s class webpage will be going live for the week. (In the first week, this will be Tuesday 14th April.)

There will be one on-line and one off-line English, Maths and Science task to be completed over the week.

We strongly suggest PE - physical activity -  every day and will have a task set to help with this. Children are allowed out in a secure garden for fresh air, so they can complete their physical exercise outdoors if appropriate.  Please refer to the latest government advice on restrictions as this will be updated.

In addition, there will be tasks from 3 other subjects for your child to work on through the week.

This work is to be completed during the week.  We suggest you set up a timetable or schedule to balance your days and the week.   Here is just one example of how you may do this:




9 – 9:30  am

Physical activity – Joe Wicks live PE on his You tube channel

9:30 -10:30am

Learning time

10:30-11:00 am


11:00- 12 noon

Learning time

12 noon


1:00-1:30 pm


1:30-2:00 pm

Physical activity


Learning time


Our advice would be to restrict gaming and device time until all learning for the day is complete.  It could be their reward to work towards.

Every child has been sent home with one lined book and one squared book to help with recording. Some of the tasks will not require any recording in a book.

Many families will find other activities and work they will want their children to do which will be individual to each family, but we will be very clear about our expectations for the work we set.


Communication with your class teacher


Every week, your child will receive a telephone call from their teacher to see how they are doing.  This will be a 5- minute phone call and will be logged.

We are requesting everyone sends a short email to their class teacher on a Friday to report their learning from the week, successes and any challenges. Staff will respond to every email and log this contact.  You are still able to contact the school staff, but request that you send one email every Friday under this agreement unless it is urgent.


The next update on this page will be Tuesday 14th April at 9am.
