Home Learning

It's the holiday!

We want everyone to have a well-earned rest and enjoy spending time with their family and friends.  We are also aware that many of the children have been away from school for an extended period and, despite our home learning offer, will have missed out on some important learning.  We are keeping the home learning page open, with suggested activities for FS pupils and links to the Oak National Academy for Y1-6.  Some 'key skills' learning is also recommended.

Regular practice of key skills:

  • Phonics/Spelling/Handwriting
  • Reading 
  • Maths Facts, i.e. counting, doubling/halving, number bonds to 10/20/100, times tables
  • Physical Activity, i.e. dancing, aerobics, yoga (there are lots of resources on YouTube to support these) 

Please also take the time to get some fresh air, even if this is just in the garden or a short local walk, to play games and be creative!

If you have any difficulties relating to accessing these resources, please email coronasupport@hobhill.staffs.sch.uk and we will do our best to help.

This fantastic children's book illustrated by the nation's favourite, Axel Scheffler (Gruffalo, Snail and the Whale etc.), helps to explain the virus, how it spreads and how to keep safe.
