Learning at home
Resources for learning at home
Welcome to our new resource page.
On this page you will find all the resources you need for your child to continue their studies at home.
We need our families to work with us to ensure home learning is effective.
Due to the closure of the school we want to ensure that your child still has access to learning activities to support them at home.
Your child (Years 1-6) already has login details to an online learning platform called DB Primary.
Reception children will have a project to do each week. See below.
With this login the children can access a variety of learning activities that are directly linked the National Curriculum.
Teachers will be adding project based work onto DB Primary on a weekly basis. Once your child logs in, they will be able to see work that has been added for them to complete.
In addition to this, your child can also access a range of self-learning activities.
If you have any queries relating to DB Primary please email us with your child's name and the school they go to (this is a central email) email@example.com

The guidance for what the parents should be focusing on for the remainder of this year is what the children most struggle with in Reception, particularly when they first start. This is:
1. Speaking, listening and understanding.
2. Fine motor skills.
3. Forming recognisable letters from their name and other letters.
4. Initial letter sounds.
5. Counting out a range of objects reliably and recognising number and shape.
6. A joy for reading and writing.
We advise our nursery children focus on one area per day and that any learning is done through play, eg. stories, songs, construction/lego, art, role play, sand/water, loose parts.
There are plenty of free resources out there for parents. We are recommending:
Amazon are doing free audio books and songs for children. (Ideally we prefer book reading and singing than audio). https://stories.audible.com/start-listen
Phonics play games. Phase 1 will be appropriate and some phase 2.
Maths activities for EYFS. Nrich do some great EYFS ones.
Website offering info on free subscriptions.
