Welcome to Beech Class Home Learning Zone!

On this page we aim to signpost you to websites that can support your child’s learning journey as it continues at home.

As we move forward into our new term of Home Learning, we are going to be providing you with some daily activities. This will follow a similar structure to that of a school day. It is not intended to be followed rigidly as we appreciate that there are a lot of other things going on at home. The daily packs will remain on the website so you can access them when you need to.

The pack includes a rainbow tracker that carry over the week as it does in class. This provides extra little activities linked to the week’s learning and can be dipped into as and when you wish.

Please note if your child is in KS1 Phonics group, they will complete that activity and the Y2 spelling group will complete their activity. It is not intended for all to do both activities.

We would love to see their efforts so please take photographs and email them to our new class email account: – we look forward to seeing their brilliant work!

Daily activities

St.Christopher’s mat have a collective worship channel. It can be found at

Phonics – Please encourage your child to access the website ‘Phonics Play.’ Here you will find lots of games and activities that will support and consolidate your child’s current learning. Year 1 children should use the phase 5 section. We especially love ‘Reading Robot’ as it helps us to read nonsense and real word (they are fantastic at this!). We sometimes like to play hangman with simple words and make up our own alien words.

Please use the username march20 and the password home

Writing – Encourage your child to draw/stick in a picture and write in their book.  Beech Class have been doing lots of work on using interesting vocabulary and are working hard to remember capital letters and full stops. They are also working really hard on their handwriting.  – Lots of picture stimulus for creative writing.

Reading  – This could be books, comics, recipes etc. It is really important that the children discuss what they have read, ask them questions, encourage them to ask questions, talk about what has happened already and what might happen next. Reading to your child is just as important.

Big Cat Collins have a login for parents where you can read leveled ebooks. These are books that the children use in school. –

Maths – There is so much opportunity for maths in real life – cooking is a great way of developing maths skills. Telling the time is another great maths skill to practice at home. Children can also be practicing their times tables, in particular 2, 5 and 10.
