What to do while schools are closed 

WE HANDING OUT MORE RESOURCES PACKS ON TUESDAY 21ST APRIL ON THE BACK PLAYGROUND BETWEEN 1PM AND 3PM. Social Distancing Rules will be in place for this. These are in addition to the homework packs, which were sent home on 18th March.

We have already sent home:

  • a Maths book;

  • an English book;

  • a pencil and eraser;

In the front of the maths books, we have stuck overview

sheets from the maths curriculum, including examples of work;

In the English books are Fiction and Non-Fiction assignments

for pupils to undertake (there are separate lists for KS1 and

Assignments ware based on books that pupils may access

through Bug Club or books they have at home. There are both

reading and writing responses to texts;

Spelling sheets will be given out covering the different year

group expectations;

The following links will take you to the Maths Year Group Expectations. These have been included in the packs

This webpage usually gives the sites that we use for pupils' weekly homework. In the light of the Current Coronavirus pandemic, with schools closing and families self-isolating and self-distancing, this is taking on an even more important role: i.e. helping to provide learning activities for pupils while they are home.


As we are expecting schools to be closed for a long time, it is important to establish daily routines for children to keep them fit and healthy as well as giving them learning opportunities and hobbies. Rather than looking at this situation negatively, let's put a positive spin on things. It is a chance for pupils to take up a hobby at home, whether it be as simple as having a drawing pad and drawing! We are continually adding to ideas and websites on this page. 

A daily routine involving English and Maths basics will help to keep your child's learning going. They have their whole lives ahead of them and we don't want them to be behind once this present situation is over.


If you require Logins for your pupils (most should know their logins or these will have already been sent home), please email the school on admin.stepney@yhclt.net
