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 grids  

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


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 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!
