Other Learning Resources

Please note that teachers will indicate on year group pages the work that they are expecting to be completed each week.  This page is meant as a guide to other learning resources that are available should you wish to complete some more.
Word games for families
In the document below are a host of word games that are fun to play as well as being good for developing language skills and memory.

On this website there are loads of pictures like the one above to act as a starter for a piece of writing.  If you scroll below the picture there are loads of ideas for how to use the picture in writing or simply as something to talk about (still using different language so also really useful).

TTS Primary Work Packs


TTS, which is a school resource supplier, have very generously produced three downloadable workbooks for primary schools which are packed with curriculum activities to do.  They have plenty of English and maths activities, but they also have them for science, PE, computing, geography, history, art, design & technology, music, languages and well being.


The link below is directly to the download page.  It is a large resource, so it may take a while to download.  There are three separate books for EYFS, KS1 amd KS2 and separate answer booklets too.



Daily sentences


Another good thing to try to do daily is write a sentence.  Below are some resources to help with that.

This activity shows you how to turn a very simple sentence into a more interesting one.

Daily Arithmetic


A really good thing to spend this time doing is consolidating your child's knowledge of arithmetic.  A little and often approach will help solidify these facts which then help most other areas of maths.  Below are some links to resources to help:

Oak National Academy


This is another initiative that has government backing.  It is an online resource of lessons for all year groups.  As with many resources, it has a focus on maths and English which includes some videos and presentations which might be of use.  However, what it offers that other sites are not offering as much is lessons on other subjects, such as science, history and music.  

This link is for access to each year group:

This is a link to the schedule for the current week.  Click on the relevant year group and then the specific day to see what the lessons are about.

Little Owls


A website full of free, printable activities for children primarily in Reception classes.  Check out the link to their collection of Spring activities below to get an idea of the resources available.  The link below that is to the main website.

Purple Mash


The Purple Mash website has various resources on it for different subjects.  After you click on the link you will need to register, but it is free to use at the moment.

Cloud Tales

Here is a lovely creative activity for you to have a go at.  Mud Pie Arts have launched 'Cloud Tales' on their website.  Each Monday and Thursday the start of a story will appear on their web site inspired by a cloud that has passed over York that morning.  The idea is for the children to then write, draw or make the end of the story.  As they say on their site: "After all, we may be stuck at home, but we still have our own patch of sky above us."
