Keeping busy this week has involved baking in Year 2! Looks delicious!


Our Year 2's have been very busy this week gardening, cooking and creating artwork. Happy Easter to all of our Benson family - stay safe!


Year 1 rainbow creation - the concentration whilst working on the artwork is great. Well done!


What a lovely display of hope and brightness in one of our pupils window. Keep the creations coming!


Even when away from school our children are using their skills to produce amazing artwork.

Year 5

Welcome to our Home Learning page

There is an expectation that all our children will continue with their learning at home and teachers will keep in contact with families to offer support.

We will be putting updates on pupils’ learning on the academy website here each Friday. Simply look at the Year group page here for your child and ask them to complete work in the exercise book and pack provided.

If you have a query please email the account and someone will advise you.

Year 5 children will be provided with two school exercise books to complete their home learning in. 

Details will be uploaded onto the academy website by 5pm on a Friday:

  • Each day the children should  read for half an hour
  • Children will need to complete one piece of writing each day
  • Children will need to complete one Spelling, Punctuation or Grammar exercise each day
  • Children will need to complete one piece of handwriting exercise each day.
  • Children will need to complete 1 arithmetic exercise each day and one piece of maths learning each day.
  • Pupils need to practice all their times tables each day so that they know them ‘off by heart’.
  • Foundation subject overviews are available here and can chose a unit to further research and present as a newspaper/ information book/ etc from each subject. E.g. “My guide to the Romans”. The expectation is for one research piece of project learning per week.

Our expectations are that Year 5 children should spend a total of 5 hours learning each day, recording this on their Home Learning Record Sheet. We ask parents to sign this at the end of each day for their children.
