*Home Learning and Spellings
At Bramhope we’ve looked at the research and on this basis we would like to share our home learning principles with you:
- The most effective thing any parent can do to help their child succeed at school is to read with them (we’re passionate about reading and that’s why we’ve invested in our library spaces and books and periodicals to continue this in-school).
- Activities involving parent and child working together on something or talking about work in school can be effective.
- Regular practising and low stakes testing can really see improvements being made.

Home learning and school closure
In order to support learning throughout the enforced school closure, our teachers are providing weekly home learning sheets. Home learning will be uploaded every Friday after 4pm.
Please click on the left for all the home learning guidance sheets, for each year group. Children should use their home learning books for recording and bring their book back to school when it re-opens. For KS2 we have also uploaded Home Learning Packs and Parent Letters from kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk, providing additional ideas and information.
We hope that you find the new home learning grids clear and easy to use. Teaching staff have planned for every subject area and included links to help bring the learning to life.
If you have questions about any aspect of your child's learning, please do not hesitate to email their class teacher. Class teachers will endeavour to respond to emails within the working day whenever possible. If your question is urgent, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Class teachers are also monitoring who has been accessing mathletics and how long each child has spent on the site. If your child is not already logging on to mathletics, please encourage them to do so. If your child has been set a problem solving and reasoning question, it will be in the Explore section on the website.
For Key Stage 2, visit astrosciencechallenge.com to find out more about a new STEM challenge, the Astro Science Challenge. An interactive, space science adventure for children aged 7-11 to inspire them in STEM subjects. Click on the document below to read the Press Release.
Finally, you should have received details of the Bramhope Big Story Swap. This is an additional, optional activity which some children may enjoy taking part in. We look forward to reading your stories!
