Core Learning Tasks and Guidance


Two reading challenges have been set. One covers the next two week period and the other for the Easter Holiday. Please can your child also record any reading into their reading record.

Some companies are arranging for free e-books and audiobooks for the upcoming weeks. Two examples of these are:



Whether you are trying a new book or picking up an old favourite, we would love to know what you have been reading. An optional additional task would be to write a book review of the books you lose yourself in over the next few weeks. We eager to know where you found yourselves and whether you would recommend your books to others!


We have set 5 activities to cover literacy. These are a mixture of reading and writing activities. The PDF will link you through. Follow the instructions for each activity. Work can be completed on a separate sheet to save printing!

-UKS2 British Science Week: Our Diverse Planet (This link has differentiated worksheets)

-UKS2 Mythical stories: Theseus and the Minotaur (This link has differentiated worksheets)

-Year 5 Relative clauses Warm Up Powerpoint

-Year 5 and Year 6 Statutory Spelling

As an optional extra, Pobble365 is a useful tool for using children’s imagination and using pictures to enhance their writing and inference skills. Children use this during their guided reading sessions so they are familiar with this resource. There is a difference picture for every day of the year so feel free to have a flick through the range of pictures and activities available on different days.
