Welcome to Pine's Home Learning Page. We understand that the next few weeks and months will be a testing time for families.
We will be using this page to set tasks for the children at the start of each week for you to complete at home. Some of these will need to be followed in a specific order, while others can be chosen as stand-alone tasks. We will try our best to include a broad range of subjects, so we cater for all interests.
Every child will be sent home with an exercise book and Power Maths Practice book, for some tasks to be completed in, while others can be typed on computers or completed using alternative methods, such as the class blog. Please only use the Power Maths books to complete tasks set.
If you have any problems with homework, or need additional support please contact us through
between 9-11 daily and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
Please encourage your child to read and use TTRockstars daily.
We will also able to communicate with you via this method. If the School does not have an up to date email address for you, please ring or see the School Office.
We will be adding additional links to help you with specific English and Mathematical terminology and working examples of different calculation methods.
Please send images, videos or work completed by the children via email so we can keep up to date with all your learning experiences!
Hope to hear from you all soon!
Mrs Kaynes and Mrs Boole

It is important to establish a Daily Routine to help to structure the day.
The children should try to complete at least one maths task, an English activity, reading and TTRockstar session, plus one other topic based activity from the weekly folder, daily.
It is so important to continue to read or be read to daily for every child.
Scholastic Learning Zone (all children have their own log on, the school code is C8QG) will be accessible between 9am and 3pm on School Days and children will be able to complete their Book Quizzes on there.

Here are the links to the year 5 and year 6 Power Maths Textbooks, the old link no longer works I'm afraid. You may need to scroll to the bottom of the page and accept terms and conditions before it will allow access.
We are all currently working on Textbook B as we have reorganised the teaching order of some units to make them easier to teach, so your child may be asked to miss out sections of their Practice Books or work more quickly through certain pages.
