Check your google classroom for daily English, Maths and Topic tasks if you can access a computer/tablet to work on.


Also use your Mathletics, Reading Eggspress and Times Table Rockstars for a short while every day.


Check the weekly bingo task sheet below and tick them off as you complete them.


Some tips for independent learning from home:

Create a learning den and play ‘schools’ as you work. Remember to have regular breaks from your learning. Drink lots of water to help you focus. Think about how you can solve any problems you come across when learning.


Have fun with your learning.
