How to use the Learning Projects
These learning projects have been added for you to use and are additional to the work / activities that your child's class teacher will be setting over the coming weeks on their class pages. They are perfect if you would like to focus on a joint topic and theme to promote family wide-learning.
There are seven projects that are available and whilst they have been created with an order in mind you do not have to follow this. It may be that you look at the table below and decide that your child or if you have more than one, children, would prefer to spend a week on the animals theme first - this is totally fine. You then download the project and begin following it
The aim is for you to complete a minimum of three hours of learning a day with your child but this is very much your parental choice and you may wish for your child to do more.

What happens if my child finds the learning too difficult?
Our first piece of advice to parents is that ALL children find elements of learning challenging
at times so try not to worry if your child becomes stuck and you cannot explain it to them. If
this happens then make a note of what they found hard and move onto another learning
activity - the school will cover any misconceptions when we return.
The Learning Projects which have been designed are based on the National Curriculum
expectations for the year group which your child is in. It may be that your child finds the
tasks set within the Learning Project for their year group too challenging, for example if they
have additional learning needs. If this is the case, then we advise that your child accesses
the Learning Projects which are set to the age range below, for example a child in Year 3/4
could attempt the KS1 Learning Project or Year 1 Learning Project, if this is more
appropriate for them.
We thank Robin Hood Academy Trust for these fantastic resources!
Initially Phase 1 of The Learning Projects was launched back in March. However, as the length of shut
down has increased, Robin Hood Academy Trust have now created Phase 2! They have partnered with STEM Learning and Warwickshire Library Service to provide a broad and balanced learning
experience for your child based on a combination of offline and online learning. The Learning
Projects signpost to many excellent online resources which are all free - for some of these
you may need to set up a free account with the online provider there is no cost to access the
resource at this time.
Whilst there is a date for each week, feel free to complete in any order.
We hope you find these useful.
