Home Learning

As of Friday 20th March the Government asked all schools to shut to the majority of children in response to the Covid-19 Virus.

At St Margaret's we want to be able to support you as best as possible with ensuring you can provide quality learning to your children at home.  We will update this page as much as possible with tips, strategies and activities to help support you with this.

New home learning packs were sent home to all children on Monday 20th April via email.  These are now on the website also (see blow).  If you want to challenge your child more or would like easier work please use an alternative year group.

Weekly timetables have also been sent to you but are now available on your child's class page as well.

The Department for Education has also released an online list of resources parents and schools can use to help support learning.  This is updated regularly.  This can be found at:

BBC Bitesize have a range of different resources and online lessons that can be used in addition to our learning packs.


The Government have also given their backing to a National Academy that has produced a range of online lessons with video tutorials.  These have been split into Year groups and subjects.  Whilst St Margaret's has not be involved in the making of these videos you may find them useful in helping your child's learning.

We would always recommend that you supervise all children's online activity and learning so you are aware of what they are learning, engaging with as well as succeeding and struggling with.  Look at our e-safety page during closure for more advice and tips.
