Home Learning

Hello Maple Parents,


This is now the page where you can access our weekly home learning during our school closure.

You can do as much or as little as you like, but there is plenty for you to get on with throughout the week. Each child has been given a phonics booklet, a handwriting booklet and a tricky words booklet. Please only do as many pages as we say in the weekly plan, otherwise you will run out of activities over the next few weeks. There are additional ideas and resources on the main website here:  https://www.flaxbourton.n-somerset.sch.uk/learning-from-home/


Every week, we'll be posting a new weekly plan, maths learning and any other resources here, by Friday at 4pm. We have given each of you a pack for your first week of learning, to save you any additional worries over printing, but in future weeks it will be really helpful if you are able to print some things out for your child.


Have fun, do as much/little as you want and be kind to yourselves- don't give yourself any additional pressures at this time! We'll be looking into ways of keeping in touch via video/ streaming soon, so keep a look out!


You are your child's new teacher! (with some very experienced teachers to do your planning!) Good luck everyone- you'll be amazing!

Home learning 30th March - 3rd April

Hello you wonderful lot!

We hope you're all having lots of fun at home with your families, and that you are enjoying your home learning. We've heard that your new teachers are doing a great job! Well done Mums and Dads!



We have found a great maths resource for you to use at home, which is the same as what we'd be doing at school. It has a video to do the teaching and then some activities to follow it up. We'll be starting with week 1 weight and mass this week on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/


Reading books

We have allocated our reading levels on the bug club for phonics books. Some of you have got in touch to say the levels are not quite right. Please bear with us, as they are different to the ones we use at school and we don't have all of our reading lists with us at home. If your child has read the books we have allocated, please send  a quick email to Class Maple account and we'll change it for you.

Also have a look at the oxford reading tree website, where they have loads of reading books similar to the ones we use at school. There is a handy table which will tell you which level your child is on here https://cdn.oxfordowl.co.uk/2019/07/19/13/52/18/160/OxfordLevelsAndBookBands.png


Remember, there are loads more resources on the curriculum learning from home page https://www.flaxbourton.n-somerset.sch.uk/learning-from-home/ including lots of reading websites.


Amazing learning

Please send us pictures of any amazing learning you have been doing (including things on and off the learning grid!). We will publish them during the week for everyone to see. Unfortunately, we can't publish videos on our website but photos of children doing something or a picture of their learning would be great! 


In the meantime, have fun you guys! We miss you lots but we know you're all letting your lights shine really brightly at home too!

Love from Team Maple xx



Amazing home learning this week! 23-27th March

Well done everyone. We can't wait to see what you've been up to (It doesn't have to be something from our learning grid, just some learning that you are really proud of!)
