Home Learning 2021

Staff have been reviewing the huge range of online resources currently available to assist you with home learning. You will find a selection of our recommended ones in the 'Websites' section of the class page.

Links to websites relevant to weekly planning will be available on each weekly learning sheet in order that they can be easily accessed.

Responsible Internet Use and Esafety

As children may now be accessing the Internet and online activities more frequently, please take the opportunity to share the 'acceptable use' rules we follow in school. These can be found below. Please read and discuss them with your children and explain what they should do if they come across something that makes them feel sad or angry. The children have taken part in Internet Safety Day. Parental guidance, documents and links are available on the website under 'Esafety'. 

Week Beginning 18th January 2021

Hi Seafielders, we hope you are all safe, well and happy.

This week the Genders household daily routine has begun with a 5am morning alarm of, "DADDY! DO YOU WANT TO PLAY NOW?", and so begins a day of cars, cars and more cars. Mr Genders has also begun to teach Bertie a series of other games including Snakes and Ladders, Hungry Hippos and The Missing Puzzle. However, his favourite game is definitely the 'Oi Frog!' memory game which is now played several times before breakfast, lunch, dinner and bedtime.

Mr Genders, well his wife, have also discovered that Bertie is pretty sly when it comes to snowball fights.

Mrs Allen has been working on her IT skills by hosting a virtual games night with her friends. She was impressed that some of the Seafield had had that idea over the Christmas holidays so tried it out on Saturday. It was great fun, with lots of laughs (mainly at Mrs Allen).

Luckily the Allen walks have been more picturesque with the ice and snow, rather than mud. Although, she did get caught in a hail storm on one of them.


Mrs Marshall has been making some long bird feeders with her family, ready for the RSPB bird watch, they filled them with peanut butter and bird seed. She has also been bird watching in their garden and spotting different birds on their daily walks.


Week Beginning 18th January 2021

Mrs Allen has been busy  going for even muddier walks and trying out some new, healthier recipes. The favourite in the Allen house is ratatouille, a recipe inspired by the film from the Disney website.

Willow and Skye have also had an operation so she has been looking after them, they are both much better now.


Mr Genders, on the other hand has being trying to spend as much time in the studio as possible, as he's currently working on several portraits. However, a loud three year old continues to scupper his well laid out plans and instead he has been playing more Batman games, reading lots of picture books and completing dinosaur and Bing! jigsaw puzzles. Fingers crossed that he'll be able to get in the studio more this week.

As we said last week, remember to try to read a little every day, practice your spellings with the patterns uploaded onto Ed Shed as well as using the pencil and paper games in your folders and don't forget to access Times Table Rock Stars little and often.

We hope that you find some of this week's ideas useful and don't forget you don't have to print anything off, looking on the website and jotting things down is great.

Week Beginning 11th January 2021

Hi Seafielders, we hope you are well and finding exciting things to do whilst at home.

Over Christmas Mr Genders has really enjoyed spending lots of quality time with his family. This has included some lovely (but chilly) walks, trips to the park, competitive Hungry Hippos, painting and lots of Batman play. He is also really enjoying watching lots of football which has been on TV, particularly the Villa matches, this inevitably involves nervous pacing around and loud celebrations.


In the Allen household they too have been enjoying a few muddy walks, with Mrs Allen very nearly ending up face down in the mud!

Mrs Allen has also resumed her virtual gym classes to try and work off all that hot chocolate she keeps drinking, and has spent the weekend trying to make a new rabbit run for Willow and Skye .(Look out for the photo next week)


We  are all having to adapt to a different way of working again ,so we have given you lots of suggestions below for your learning from home. Remember to try to read a little every day, practise your spellings with the patterns uploaded onto Ed Shed as well as using the pencil and paper games in your folders.

Don't forget you don't have to print everything off, looking on the website and jotting things down is great.
