Real PE at Home – Online Learning Resources


Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is great for family play and fun.


It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.


There are so many benefits to being active, not only to our physical well-being but also to our emotional and mental health, especially in such testing times for all of us. We hope that the ideas help support you and your family to stay fit and healthy in the coming months.


Here are the details to access Real PE at home:

27.3.20 - All future home learning can be found in the 'Year R Home Learning' area at the top of this page smiley

Good morning everyone.  What a beautiful morning it is too!


Here is today's learning:


Writing - In class I read you the story of 'The Little Red Hen'.  Using the workbook in your pack, write a few sentences about the story or if you can, write the full story by yourself.  Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning of each sentence, finger spaces and a full stop at the end.  Sound out each word as you write it and use your 'Robot Arms' if it helps.



Reading - Please read an Active Learn book today and answer any comprehension questions.

Good Morning Class R

Yesterday I took my little dogs for a walk and I noticed lots of rainbow pictures displayed in people's windows.  The children have been drawing rainbows to quite simply cheer everyone up and make people smile as they walk past.  With that in mind I have attached a rainbow colouring sheet for you to complete or you could draw your own.......lots of you are fabulous at drawing rainbows!


Phonics - please complete a sheet in your phonics home learning pack, taking care to form all your letters correctly. 


Reading - please read one of your Active Learn books for at least 10 minutes and use the illustrations to answer any questions your parents/carers may ask you about the book.

Wednesday 25th March


Good morning Class R.

I am missing you all already!  It feels really strange for me to be setting all your learning on-line, so I realise how strange it must be for you too.  Just keep trying your best as you always do!  

Don't forget to fit in some exercise too!

Maybe look at Joe Wicks on his website where he is doing daily PE sessions for us all to enjoy.  Then you could go out in garden for some fresh air and have some fun too as the weather looks beautiful again today!



Here is today's home learning:


Maths - please complete the first worksheet in your individual maths pack.  Ask an adult for support if you find it a little tricky.


Reading - please read one of your Active Learn books for at least 10 minutes and use the illustrations to answer any questions your parents/carers may ask you about the book.


E-Safety: please complete this activity on Purple Mash, it has been set as a 2do at the top of the page. Think about which behaviours are safe and which are unsafe and then sort them correctly. 

Tuesday 24th March


Good morning Class R.  I hope you are all keeping safe and enjoying working from home.  Here is today's learning.


Using the password in your home-link diary, log on to Purple Mash on the Home Page of our website.  Click on the ' 2do' button at the top of the page.  There you will have an activity - label the parts of a plant.  We talked about the different parts of a plant when we went to Grappenhall Heys Walled Gardens.


Also read an Active Learn book that has been allocated to your file for 10 minutes.....don't forget the 'Bug' quizzes!

Bumble Bee Project


'The Plight of the Bumblebees'

Here are some resources about a bumble bee project that you might want to complete whilst at home...

Good morning Children, I hope you are all well and keeping busy!  Each morning  I will put your learning for the day on this page.


I have prepared a wealth of wonderful learning activities and opportunities for you to enjoy whilst you are at home. Each day, different activities will be uploaded for you to complete.


Please keep checking this page for further updates!


Monday 23rd March 


Today I would like you to read one of your Active Learn books and talk about the book with your parent/carer.  Discuss what you liked about the book etc.  Don't forget to look out for the 'bug' at the top of the pages and answer the comprehension questions.


Also I would like you to get active, maybe outdoors and complete this spelling/writing task.


Ideas to support your Year R child:


  • Practise correct number formation
  • Order number 1-10 and then 1-20
  • Ask your child to make their own number lines
  • In practical activities, using everyday objects, add two sets of objects to find the total
  • Baking is a great activity for measuring and predicting
  • Ensure your child reads every day for 10 minutes
  • Ask your child questions about the books they have read
  • Handwriting practise, ensuring your child starts and finishes the letter at the correct point
  • Write a weekly diary


Mrs Griffiths



Hello Class R, Mrs Pawson here. Below is the link to the E-safety page on our school website. Make sure you spend 10 minutes each week discussing/thinking about how to stay safe online.



I hope you are keeping well at home.


Tomorrow morning, between 08:00 and 08:30, your class teacher will be letting you know more about what activities they have planned for you for the day. 


Please be patient because sometimes, when lots of people are using our school website, it's hard to upload things.  So even if you can't see anything by 08:30 am, your teacher will be trying their best to put the information you need online.


I hope you enjoy the activities.

Class R performed 'A Little Nativity' for the school and their families.  They were amazing and made us all so proud.  A HUGE well done to them!

We had a wonderful morning watching a production of Little Red Riding Hood with lots of children from our neighbouring nurseries and pre-schools.  It was very exciting and we joined in with lots of acting, helping out Little Red Riding Hood!
